Seattle: Stumptown and Pride

I got up all blurry eyes for a loo visit in the middle of the night and tried to locate my key card in the dark. I left the room holding a name card. I wasn’t even smoking anything. Thank goodness the reception was able to issue me a replacement card.

So much for the night adventure.

I had breakfast in. Cooked the apple pork sausages I bought from this sausage making place at pike place market the previous day. Sausages took a little longer than expected to cook. I wasn’t sure how to tell if they were cooked thoroughly, though I pried them open and saw so sign of uncooked portions. It was a good thing my stomach is titanium built. It can only be brought down by the worst of food poisoning, like that bout in India. Besides the sausages I bought, I had the bread, bagels, sweet corn butter, jam and peanut butter creamy that were laid out for communal sharing.

Weather was gloomy today. It drizzled a little yesterday evening and ruined my hair a little. I hope it doesn’t rain tomorrow morning during the run. I can’t imagine running in this cold. I would have ‘my balls frozen,’ so as to speak.

I had already left the Volunteer Park Pride Festival when it started to rain and was back at Bakery Nouveau for my second seated round of coffee.

The fish shaped croissant with salmon and cream cheese filling, which was sold out the second time I went. Flaky yet crisp outer with fragrant filling. Oh so nice.

One of the coffee places I saw en route a mistaken bus ride was the popular Stumptown coffee! I didn’t get to visit one when I was in NYC so I was happy to pop in for a cup of coffee. I was not supposed to keep off coffee today because of the race on Sundayand to sleep well but … well, the coffee didn’t disappoint. I had traditional macchiato.

I felt happiness of a coffee kind of high level.

RPC was @Madison park

According to a regular park visitor, this was not the usual Saturday crowd. Saturday was usually quite peaceful and quiet. I found seats outside of Starbucks and NO, no starbucks the commercialised coffee!

Nice day to sit and watch a concert.

Food truck Cheese Wizard. Their food menu board was fancy. I got the goblin king.

The fancy menu

The wizard. This looks good and it tastes even better.The other crust is crisp. Only thing though, the inside fillings could be more (the red bell pepper and the butter). Everything else is good.

The vehicle I want to retire with and in.

I looked up and saw my sky.
