It’s Not Just for the Donuts… I Promise!

Tim and I took a few days off this week and drove up to Seattle to see one of our favorite bands perform. We brought our bikes along and took advantage of some lovely weather and food (donuts and more). We even found a park two blocks away from our hotel that had a Petanque court! How cool is that? Below is a photo journal of the highlights:

Beloved Mighty O Donuts and my new favorite bevvie: Chai! Here you see a Cocoloco donut and a Lemon Poppyseed Donut. Mighty O was less than a mile from where we stayed, so we walked there in the morning (on two different occasions… What?) to fuel ourselves for bike rides.

Tim and his new galsses made from donuts: one Raspberry lens and one Chocolate Peanut Butter lens.

Sipping some tea amongst the lovely fall leaves…

Moving on from donuts:

We also rode our bikes along the Burke-Gilman trail. This is an amazingly pretty trail, especially with the fall foliage at its peak. It’s easy to ride farther than you realize, and there are nice parks along the way to stop and have lunch.

Fun ducks and cormorants at Matthew’s Beach

After lots of bike riding, we were hungry:


Pizza Pi was also close to our hotel (we stayed in the University District)

Vegan sausage, mushrooms, spinach, olives, garlic sauce, and some Teese, I think.

Ready to play some Petanque! Tim won a game and I won a game. The reward? Donuts! This game is so much fun.

We also strolled through the University of Washington campus and spent some time people watching and remembering the freedoms of college life… Sigh…

It’s hard going back to work after having such a happy vacation.

Even Mr. & Mrs. Duck agrees with that.

    Sounds like a very fun weekend indeed – and Tim’s glasses are stunning!

  4. The University District is so awesome! I swung by there when I was in Seattle a few weeks ago. I loved the atmosphere and the people. I’m hoping to move to that area at some point, once I’m settled in Washington.
