Would you like a little cheese with your wine?


Today the hubs and the kiddos and I ventured down to Pike Place Market for their annual cheese festival. Basically rows of covered tables full of cheeses to taste from around the world. There was also a wine/beer tent but we opted for yummy lemonade and smoothies.

Everything was so good. My favorite was a tie between the honey flavored goat cheese by Chevre and the white cheddar soaked in Merlot. Yum! We passed by the original Starbucks location where some enterprising gentleman was playing his violin.

A lot of other interesting people down there. A guy with a parrot, a guy with a cat doing tricks and this guy playing the piano in the middle of the road.

I think I got a little sun and am glad to be home to enjoy the rest of the sunny day.

That cheese festival looked wonderful! One question, though - did it occur in 1908? The sepia makes those photos look wonderful, like old shots from an album.

GOD, I miss cheese. PROPER cheese. I bought some brie yesterday. Bacon, rocket, onion and a crusty baguette and OM NOM NOM! Delicious!

Thanks! Yeah - I was in a mood and took B&W, Sepia and color photos at the market. Have not been down there in a while and it was a fun and inexpensive day.
