We walked around Pike's Place for the two days we had to ourselves. Monday was a day full of food. I wanted to celebrate our marriage, so a couple of days before hand, I made reservations at a french restaurant located inside the market called Place Pigalle. Colleen had the duck. I had the risotto with duck confit. Both were delicious. I also had a wine, which I can't remember the name of, that was grown only in Argentina and was very good.
Earlier that day we had to take advantage of one of our numerous wedding gifts and eat lunch at Matt's in the Market. We were specifically told to have lunch, not dinner, at this location. The advice was great. I had a beef brisket sandwich. I'm spotty on what Colleen had. The beer was good, although nothing that I wouldn't find in other places. But still a nice selection of micro brews.
Our last day we shopped in the market. We bought peaches, lychee berries, tomatillos and a painting to remember our short two day stint in Seattle. The artist of the painting gave us 5 dollars off as a congratulations to our recent marriage.
Fortunately these two days are not the full extent of our honeymoon. If they were, I'm not sure if I would still work for my current employer. We will be enjoying the beaches of Tulum Mexico in mid to late October. The weather should be great, as long as no hurricanes pay us a visit.

Blogspot does not recognize the words, confit, lychee, or tomatillo. This blogosphere is more uncultured than I ever could have feared.
