Gorgeous view of downtown Seattle from Airship this morning:
We met some new friends for brunch (delicious eggs benedict with dill hollandaise) at Lola yesterday morning (Hi Elaine and Fred! Thanks again!) and then did some work at the boat before we headed over to the boat show for the afternoon. This is a very small portion of the very large boat show.
The Nordic Tug booth ("booth" seems a funny term for what this is) has a brand new Nordic Tug 34 (beautiful…I want those countertops!) and a 39 that's a couple years old (but looks brand new), and they're playing Kevin's beautiful aerial copter video that he made at Patos Island (two places in the "booth" … check it out if you stop by…or just watch it here). 🙂
We roamed around and talked to people we knew and looked at boaty stuff, then returned to Airship so Kevin could finish up an article.
Later on we met up with our friends Sam & Anna and had dinner at a place up on Virginia and 2nd called Shaker & Spear. It was delicious! Kevin and I shared a beets and butter lettuce salad with goat cheese, and octopus with warm cannellini beans, celery, and salsa verde as first courses, and then shared two entrees: seared scallops with sunchoke purée, brussels sprouts, with a caper and blood orange sauce, and albacore with farro risotto, butter poached radishes, with an olive and orange tapenade. Super yum, all of it. Fun day!
