A sunset walk around Green Lake is an amazing way to enjoy a warm August evening in Seattle. The spectacular post-storm clouds made this particular evening's sky even more magical. So good. Baked Alaska : peanut butter crust, coconut ice cream, chocolate shell under a dome of flaming meringue. It's one of my favorite lake trails in Seattle One of my favorite places to walk my dog and enjoy the views #endlesssummer #colorful Check out this coffeehouse if you find yourself in Seattle's Greenwood neighborhood. The comfy digs are great for settling in with a laptop. Pick up an assortment of their tasty truffles while you're at it, though the large selection makes for some tough decisions. They occasionally have live music. On this day, there was a fortune teller on site. Mt. Fuji splendor. Spring finally comes to Seattle. These trees light up the banks of Green Lake in the spring! Cool beach park with some fun trails, easily accessible from the city:) There's no way to explain it. There's a shrine neatly tucked into a neighborhood garden. Like, in a cave. One of the weirder finds I ever found in Seattle. Fresh bell peppers @ Central Market! I just liked the colors! 🍅🍴 So pretty in spring...and the fall here, the trail around the lake is about 2.5 miles and it's flat. Perfect for jogging, evening strolls, and picnics. It does get super busy on the weekends though. Went to the wild lights at woodland park zoo. This incredible Animal friendly zoo does a beautiful holiday lights display! The crepes here are the best. The powdered sugar looks like snow! Summer sunset on Greenlake, Seattle.
Cute little lake north of the city that boarders Fremont and Ballard. Check out those areas for great food, cocktails and music. A darling cafe in north Seattle, it's an absolute must. #food #coffee #seattle #blue #patterns Step back in time and ride this fully restored 1918 carousel with 48 hand-carved wooden horses. Of the 5000 wooden carousels that were built, fewer than 150 are still in operation.
This particular carousel (PTC #45) was built in 1918 by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company. The horses are believed to have been completely carved by master craftsman John Zalar, now considered the most gifted carver of his era. The carousel operated at the Cincinnati Zoo for 56 years before being moved to the Great America Theme Park in Santa Clara, California where it ran for another 20 years. It was purchased in 2000 by preservationists Tom and Linda Allen and presented to the zoo, where it underwent a six year, $3.2 million restoration. Tasty Italian food and pizza tucked into a Ballard neighborhood. It's small but worth the wait. Recommend the Jersey Salad and spicy pepperoni pizza. Fun father / daughter dumpling cooking class. Beautiful space and great teachers. They offer all sorts of classes and dining experiences. Check it out. Fun father / daughter dumpling cooking class. Beautiful space and great teachers. They offer all sorts of classes and dining experiences. Check it out. A summer evening walk at Green Lake Park...one of local's favorite parks, super dog friendly and kid friendly as well...and lovely during sunset... :) Beth's cafe is an awesome spot that's open really late. Just north of Seattle, Beth's is famous for the 12 egg omelette (which I highly recommend sharing since you get unlimited hash browns). This was the triple bypass: 3 cheeses, bacon, sausage, and enough grease to kill a common man. Be sure to ask for crayons and paper to draw while you wait for your food-all artwork can be put up on the walls. Araya's is a vegetarian restaurant in the University District here in Seattle. So, close to the U of Washington. Entrees here are between $10-$15. Really, great food! Also, the restaurant itself is beautifully decorated.
The first plate is the Phad See-Iew, the second is the Basil Fried Rice, and the last dish is the Mango Salad. Shot with the iPhone 4S. You can get surprisingly close to the gray wolves in the Northwest Trail exhibit. This is why I chose to get my car washed here. It really is quite an impressive Seriously, best place in Seattle for new/used/vintage/retro music gear. I LOVE this place!!! Simply the best bar, cafe and bad art museum in town. You can get a beer at 10 a.m. or a latte at 11 p.m. And the best people-watching too: hippies, bikers, burned-out rockers, weirdos and poets. Highly recommended. Beautiful spring afternoon at Green Lake!
One of Seattle's most beloved parks. Its expanse of water and green space in the center of a dense urban neighborhood draws thousands of people daily from all over the city...

#capturethemoment #sunsetphotography #beach #sunsetcolors #pnw #seattle #seattlelife #pacificnorthwest #picoftheday #sunsetwalks #wanderlust #sheexplores #paintedsky #clouds #photooftheday #instanature #evening #earthpix One of the most beloved neighborhood parks in Seattle, with a lovely paved 3 mile trail around the lake... Not a very big in-house selection, but a great library for spending time in and/or picking up some holds! Neighborhood isn't the best, restaurant is small, food is fantastic! If you call ahead (24hrs), they can make #glutenfree injera. #Ethiopian Greenlake in the fall. Green Lake Park is a fresh water lake just north of Downtown Seattle. Its a great place to escape the busy life of the city without having to go very far. Its also a nice place to go biking, rollerblading or just going for a run on a trail around the park. Wayward vegan cafe is a great place for *unhealthy* vegan food. It’s a good brunch stop, especially if you have vegan friends. The Shorecrest PAC is the place for amazing dance groups from the Seattle area. Featured in this photo: Cruz Control. This mountain goat stopped and looked at me for a solid two minutes, even after I took the picture. We had a moment. The Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle is really great and inexpensive. ❤🌹🐐#zoo #animals #mountaingoat Plenty of colors and flavors to choose from!
These brightest, yummiest, delicious, rainbow of macaroons can be found at
Le Panier, Pike place market, Seattle.
After a tiring shopping tour of Pike place market, coffee and some macaroons were like heaven!
Do try them sometime if you ever happen to be there :) btw Rose is my fav!
Best walk in town. Finish up a late evening walk around Green Lake with drinks at Blue Water Bistro or Green Lake Bar and Grill.
Tip: Best times to walk are sun rise and late sunset - the rest of the day the track is swarming with joggers, strollers and dogs Good Hawaiian Grindz...Kona Kitchen...plus you get to meet the owner who was also in the Karate Kid Movies. Pretty place for a short hike and playing with kids. Walking trails along a river and a zip line too! Happened upon this place near Greenlake, and decided to give it a try after discovering that all the patrons were Chinese (always a good sign!). Good Szechwan food is hard to find in Seattle, and this place did not disappoint. Salt & Pepper shrimp, beef broccoli (pictured) are really good but pretty mundane. Try the whole Dungeness crab!They have 2 menus, 1 in Chinese, 1 in English. I'm going back with someone who can read that Chinese menu! Super fresh and flavorful pho spot with cool rustic interior and vibe. Check it for lunch. Nyla @ the Zoo #patterns Yes, it's a mural of Bettie Page on the side of someone's house. Go check it out! My burrito is as big as your baby (or is it the other way around?!)!! Finally found a Mission style burrito (try the wet burrito) and some fish tacos I can fully endorse. This place is exactly what you might find in SF, LA or somewhere S of the border. Loved it. Green lake park is one of the most popular lakes in Seattle, super dog friendly as well... :)
#AquaTrove Crazy single malt scotch offerings! Wolf on a rainy day at the zoo Huge garden shop with top quality supplies and helpful staff. A bit pricey. Newly hatched butterflies hanging out while their wings dry. Oldest ppatch in Seattle. In the middle of a big renovation right now. One of my favorite places in the city for a walk. Come visit soon! The Angry Beaver pub is the only Canadian themed restaurant I've ever found in Seattle. Bedecked with hockey jerseys and Canadian memorabilia, the menu features this poutine flight with three different gravies, and pea meal bacon features heavily on the menu. Cool place to go watch some Olympics. Walking around Green Lake and saw these mushrooms. The patio at Naked City is gorgeous no matter what time of year you visit! Greenwood is an excellent destination for any thirsty beer geek. #WinterWonders #lifeatexpedia Chinese take out cooking class! Yum. Eat in your car 50's style. Unique. Awesome totem to mark the entrance. Great beach and park with playground & basketball court. Excellent cycling destination from Seattle via Burke Gilman trail. Picardo is beautiful in all seasons. Lots of Brussels sprouts still stand tall in January. This is Pete, born in the wild in 1968. He is one of the original Woodland Park Zoo gorilla family. Very cool to see. This is my first panoramic shot with the iPhone 5. It's great to be able to capture the layout of Central Market! It's my absolute favorite grocery store and always has fresh goods to choose from. Tangletown has a wonderful new pub called The Burgundian, and they serve a delicious Eggs Benedict all day long. I believe the people of Brouwer's (Fremont) and Bottleworks (Wallingford) are behind it. The beer options are draft and can. I definitely prefer draft. No holds barred at this modern refresh of the 50s burger joint. Clean, lively, fresh, heavy. Fried Lumpia! Pretty ridiculous. A land locked speedboat acts as a planter in this Seattle Summer Sunset New fave Thai place. Looks like a re tread of Baja Fresh tacos, but the Panama beef was really tender as was the grilled chicken. Russell loved his pad Thai. Thumbs up and close to school. Have a good morning 'n breakfast.
November 11st, 2016. Zebras @ the Zoo #patterns Went here for their epic meatloaf sandwich, but sidetracked by this amazing Mac and cheese. Their apple crisp was literally the icing on the cake! #OmNom If you need a fun food option on the way to Target. Classic burgers, good quality, slowish service. Greenlake... Such a classy, classy spot. The Mighty Thai salad @ Thrive! If only all vegetarian food was as good as this. I like Ramen. I love it so much ❤️
Taken at January 8th, 2015. The Green Lake Loop is a huge favorite for locals in #Seattle. The 2.8-mile path around the lake provides a lovely spot for runners, bikers, skaters and walkers. It also features athletic fields and infrastructure for boating, picnics and swimming. I've even seen bald eagles there! #lovemycity Sunset off the beach near Deception Pass Eat like you give a dream.
Date on January 6th, 2017. Hiking the Oneonta Gorge in Oregon takes you up a creek, over a giant log jam and eventually to a beautiful waterfall. Be warned though, the water is freezing cold and the only way to hike the Nice style 🐿🐿🐿.
Taken at October 21st, 2016. This place has macaroni bacon pizza! Snarfed a couple slices with a blueberry mule drink with sweet service and a relaxed, spacious atmosphere. The theater nearby is $12.50/ticket normally, but if you order them here from your server they go down to $9! Fun :) Legendary meat loaf burger. Coming from a girl that despised meatloaf up until the moment she tried this, that means a lot! Baked, then grilled for the burger. Wow! Dinner...is served (tonight's entree: Children McNuggets) Phenomenal. Also happens to come in gluten-free and vegan. Greenlake. Hands down one of the best places in all of Seattle. Best burger I've found in Seattle wrapped in a buffed out kinda agro dive. I hear lunch labs or something like that may have a better burger, though. It's in south lake union. Should I go? Rudo, the remaining male cub at WPZ, will be leaving for El Paso Zoo in Texas in late January/early February. Spent a little time with him before he was going to leave. Good Indian food lives here and the menu has useful These stuffed angel wings were only the top of the delicious iceberg. Tiny awesome hole-in-the-wall Thai place where everything is well-crafted and flavorful...the soup is even better. Waited for 1 hour. I'm very hungry. Breakfast changed brunch. #eggbake #breakfast #brinch
Egg bake: two eggs in solea tomato, basil, mozzarella.
Taken at November 22nd, 2015. Time will soon be over.
Taken at December 4th, 2015. Best donuts in Seattle, and love that they are vegan
#lifeatexpedia Kayaking Green lake, $20/ hr Carkeek is my favorite park in Seattle and it's perfect for sunset watching. Delicious food can't share with others.
Taken at October 21st, 2016. Coffee or tea? No tea, is bread.
Taken at October 29th, 2016. We were at a safe distance from this magnificent creature. June 2017 :) When at Eliot Bay in the fall, their pumpkin cider is a must try! #localgem This zoo has such a variety of animals! I'd definitely say it's a
