A Day in America

Yesterday Brad and I went to Seattle to purchase cabinet hardware from Builder's Hardware & Supply Co. but before we got there we had a couple of mini diversions.  First we went to the Apple Store in Alderwood Mall to shop for a new computer for me.  My present desk top computer is much too large to tote to Ecuador so I was searching for a MacBook Air with Brad and Ed's help.   The discussion on our tech needs is ongoing.  If any of you readers have suggestions, please join the discussion.

After dropping Ed off at Cascadia College in Bothell where he's teaching computer programming and organizational psychology, Brad and I continued on to Seattle to run our errands.  But, on the way to Builder's Hardware we passed the Pike Place Market.  Since it was lunch time, we stopped for a quick 2 hour holiday.  A little hole in the wall Chinese Restaurant, with a 10+ view struck our fancy so we lunched there.  No regrets.  Good food, outstanding view of Elliott Bay, and good conversation.  Then we wandered the market quickly, enjoying the sights.

How in the world did this wall get started?

A wonderful little coffee shop on Western Avenue with outstanding
gluten free pastries.  I never thought I would say "good" in conjunction with gluten free, but this little shop
is the exception to the rule.  Coffee was excellent too.  Nice proprietors.
