After Leaving Colorado and the CXC Team I traveled to Seattle where I met up with Chad and Alieta. Colorado was a bit of shock to the system as we were staying at training between 9,000 – 10,000ft. I entered the camp one day after my last final and I was a bit fatigued from the late nights of studying and the quick tur around Since it was a Friday and they had to work I “commuted” to work with Chad by running from their apartment in Magnolia to Downtown. Both Chad and Alieta work downtown but they have a fantastic bike path that runs along the water front to get there! After I toured both of their offices I set out for a morning in the City.
It didn’t take me long to find fun places to pose for a photo.
I waked down to Pike Street Market which is quite a sight with all kinds of beautiful produce, flowers, nick knacks and of course fresh caught FISH!
I saw aome of the largest whole fish I have ever seen. After being landlocked in the Mid-West for so many years it was fun to get back to the coast and it’s awesome perks!
I got to sample a Washington Peach! Wow, it was the most delicious piece of fruit I have ever had!!!
The Methow Valley is just outside of the Skagit Valley where all kinds of fruits are grown, especially apples.
I am looking forward to eating lots of fruit from the local stands around the valley.
I brought my own banjo along for the trip but I am not going to try and earn a living playing it just yet.
