While I’m in the process of perfecting my next recipe (linguine with clam sauce!), I thought I’d take this chance to do something my dad always loved: showing off vacation pictures.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to make you sit through a 500-picture slide show. I just selected a few choice shots that I knew my dad would have loved. He never made it to Seattle, but while I was there on my first trip, taking in the sights and seafood, I just knew he would have loved it.
Dad would have been in HEAVEN here. So much fresh food!
I’d like somma that awesome sweet corn
Dad would love grossing us out with this bad boy.
I had to try one of these.
We spent some time hanging out at the locks just watching the boats go through. Dad would have marveled at this feat of human engineering. :-)
Trains, of course!
I tried my first raw oysters in Seattle…and loved it!
Dad would be so proud.
Live geoduck (pronounced gooey-duck). Also known as the penis of the sea. I wasn’t quite adventurous enough to try one, but I feel like Dad would have given it a shot.
We took the Amtrak train from Seattle to Portland, and the views were breathtaking. I knew my dad would have loved every second.
Another sea scene
The trip was incredible. I’ll certainly never forget that fresher-than-fresh seafood! Next stop, Maine for some lobster?
Bonus pic: this old building in Portland looks like it could have come right out of my dad’s model train layout.
