Early the next morning, Brian and I headed back to Seattle for the City of Hope Ball, a fundraiser for the City of Hope Cancer and Research Hospital. We went down early enough to walk around Capital Hill and look at some really cool shops. We went to Melrose Market, a neat little warehouse like building with lots of shop inside. Kind of like a European market. There was a butcher, a restaurant, a flower shop, a deli, and some individual shops too.
My favorite shop was called Butter Home. It was a shop filled with product by local artists. Loved the bunting along the railing...
We stayed at the Westin in downtown Seattle and had a great view!
The next morning we got up really early, mainly because we forgot to set our clocks back, and headed down to Montlake to watch my nephew row crew for Bainbridge Island. There was a huge regatta going on and while it was pretty, it was soooooo cold!!!! Had a wonderful visit with my sister in law and my other nephew and Brian enjoyed hanging out with his brother.
We waited 2 hours for a glimpse of Nate doing warm-up, but as luck would have it, a sailboat needed to go through the cut and this happened...
Yes, he went through while the bridge was up!!!! Bummer!
That's him in the back! Sorry I missed you Nate!!
A great weekend with wonderful friends!
How was your weekend?
