USA 2013 | Seattle - Ballard -

After reading lots of good stuff about the Ballard neighborhood (on Elephantine's blog and on Design Sponge, for example), it was one of the places at the top of our to-do list for Seattle. 
We walked into many adorable little boutiques and had the best Mexican lunch at La Carta de Oaxaca. Oh, and there was a rainbow around the sun that day in Seattle; it was the first one I had ever seen and it was very pretty!

We walked to the Ballard Locks where we were delighted to find out it was salmon spawning season. It was so cool to see them jump up the fish ladder to go back to where they were born and start the next generation. There's even an underground part where you can observe the fish while they take a rest in one of the pools before continuing their journey.



  1. This is my neighborhood! Glad you had fun (and got to see the salmon)!

    1. Hi Sarah!
      Your neighborhood is so lovely... we really enjoyed spending a day there.
      You should have seen us when we saw our first salmon jump from one pool to the next: we were so excited! :-)

      I really enjoyed looking at your blog and especially reading about the lady who helped you guys find an apartment. I really have a thing for genuinely NICE people; they make the world a better place.
