The perfect autumn adventure in Seattle has to start at Pike Place. Surprisingly for late October- we actually woke up to blue skies, so we all headed down to the pier to go on the Ferris wheel. Just as the clouds came over…
Seattle is beautiful when it’s cloudy though, and Pike Place felt super cosy and autumnal when the drizzle started. We played on the arcade machines, got coffees, looked through the records, the book stores, and the antique shops.
Wyatt and Jack bought a vintage baseball bat and the guy in the shop said they’d need a mitt with the bat to avoid getting arrested for carrying a weapon around town… Not sure if true or if just an awesome salesman?
After a couple of amazing Washington oysters we drove back in the old station wagon to our house for the weekend- a Victorian mansion, that everyone was convinced was haunted.
We played baseball out in the yard amongst the fallen leaves, took photos, messed around on the swing, drank some beers and then had to climb through the window because no one brought the house keys out.
In the late afternoon, we got layered up in Wrangler Wool Truckers, and Sherpa Jackets over jeans. Feeling super cozy we hiked out to the pine trees at Discovery Park, talking about the bands we were seeing later.
Being as it was Halloween we hid behind trees and tried to scare people passing by with our flashlight and ghost noises. Pretty sure we scared no one.
We jumped in the back of a pickup for some Twin Peaks style moody selfies, before piling back in the wagon to go to the gig. Changing in the car in to rad logo tees, with 90’s Wrangler embroidery, and of course, more plaid, and more denim. When in Seattle…
Headed out to Central Saloon to see our friends band, then the Crocodile, then Nuemos. Honestly don’t really remember the rest after that…
