Road Trip Day 12: Train to Seattle, WA

We woke up early, ate breakfast, and packed our bags for Seattle today. I was incredibly excited because we were taking the train!

Nothing new happened for food; just snacks on the way. 

Our train ride went very well, we saw some new scenery, enjoyed playing cards, and even though two young toddlers sat next to us we were able to nap for a little while as well.

We trekked our way through Seattle, which was much more big-city-like than our beloved Portland, to our unique hotel: The Maxwell. All of us were very impressed with its niceness.

They served some of the most wonderful little pineapple cupcakes at the guest check-in area. I may have eaten more than one.

Our dinner at Peso’s was…incredible. From the artistic and culturally distinct decorations to the drinks and the food we were more than pleased. We started with queso, guacamole, and salsa (yes we ate too much again!). I had portabella mushroom and poblano pepper enchiladas, Brad also had enchiladas and my brother and his girlfriend had fish tacos. The chefs at this restaurant took these simple meals and elevated them to something very special.

The night was capped off with buckets o’ alcohol at The Rock, the pizza place below our hotel. Needless to say, it was a fun night.

Seattle has not failed to impress us so far and we have big plans for tomorrow: The Space Needle and Pike’s Place Market.
