Saturday was a fabulous day. I drove Adalia down to Seattle to meet up with her online friend, Ginny.
Ginny found my blog around the time I was pregnant with Apollo and Adalia was taking her doula course at Bastyr. Ginny was (and still is) very interested in midwifery and being a doula. She began emailing Adalia and the girls developed a deep friendship. Ginny and Adalia have been emailing/Facebooking and talking on the phone for three years now.
Ginny, as it turns out, has an amazing knack for finding the best spots to eat. For lunch she chose Volunteer Park Cafe. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our lunches. The atmosphere was incredible and the food delicious. I hope to go there again.
After lunch we headed out to Pike Place Market. I mean, come on. We couldn’t have friends visit all the way from Massachusetts and not go to Pike Place.
The girls had a ball there. I’m pretty sure they could have spent all day. And all night there.
And it wouldn’t be Pike Place without a little fish tossing, now would it?
And since Ginny’s real name is Virginia, we had to get this shot. I call it Virginia Inn the Rain. You can’t see it in the photo, but it was raining pretty good at this point.
The icing on the cake for our day, was when Ginny called that evening to let Adalia know she made her decision: she will be going to school in Seattle in the fall. We can’t wait to see more of this beautiful, lovely young lady.
