on our last day in seattle, we went to pike's place market and out to the woodinville wine country. it is only 8 miles from downtown seattle, and i don't know what we were expecting, but we just decided against going to any of the wineries. i think that the olympic peninsula wineries the day before spoiled us! except for a few, the wineries in woodinville were located in industrial park offices, kind of strange. they get all of their grapes from eastern washington, so it isn't like napa and sonoma where there are sprawling estates. we did go to the red hook brewery and got a beer and it was very nice. we then went to see slumdog millionaire (loved it) and went to cheesecake factory for dinner. it was a great visit to seattle, the juxtaposition of the water and the mountains and the green everywhere just is such a great atmosphere! we loved our trip out to the olympic peninsula to go to forks and hope to be able to go back again to enjoy the park next time!
