Yesterday we really enjoyed Pikes Market. It was my first time there. What an amazing place, it is like a three dimensional maze of markets, shops and places to eat. After we got to Bellevue we had a great Italian dinner at a place called "Salute of Bellevue." With dinner we had a bottle of Hodges 2002, Three Vineyards Meritage, a Bordeaux blend that was very a nice Washington red wine!
We are staying at the Silver Cloud Inn in Bellevue. We have a great 4th floor suite. We watched the Tour de France and the most recent London bombings here.
