Swooping by Seattle

I was in Washington state recently for a business trip at the Costco headquarters in Issaquah. Typically, I make this a day trip only, admiring the Pacific Northwest pathetically from the car on the short drive from the airport to my meeting. But this time I spent the night and squeezed in a quick trip to the Pike Place Marketplace in Seattle.

I happened across this cute place, Pike Street Press, and was happy to discover that they sell Chronicle products.

Pleeza no squeeza!

A short but sweet trip. Here’s to mixing business with pleasure.

  1. Great pictures of Pike Place. Makes me want to go back. You really got lucky with such a beautiful day too!

  2. Hi Erynn!

    Nice photos of Seattle. I’m originally from here, but now I’m a ‘drifter’ living in SoCal. I also love books, am actually writing a YA novel at the moment. Thanks for the following. And I look forward to reading your future posts. 🙂
