The Couple That Ate Seattle

Apparently we’re taking a culinary tour of the city. Today we continued the trend by hopping a trolley to an industrial neighborhood in the Union Lake section of Seattle in search of Skillet. You’ll never think of the lunch truck in the same way once you’ve eaten out of one of Josh Henderson’s trailers. Josh is married to Kelly Carrier, who is the oldest daughter of Judy and Dave Carrier, our wonderful friends from Phoenix. They serve gourmet meals out of a silver Airstream trailer in alternating locations in Seattle.

We went for breakfast. The handwritten menu on the chalkboard leaning against the trailer offered about 6 choices. Mark picked “Trailer Hash” – bacon, eggs, potatoes and veggies. Yum! I chose an amazing dish of waffles, eggs, and oddly – a bit of pork roast. Also tasty!

We spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon driving down and around and up the west side of Puget Sound on our way to Port Angeles. Stopped for lunch in Port Gamble and had homemade chicken noodle soup – even the noodles were homemade - and a freshly baked cinnamon roll. Mark had his third meal of clam chowder since coming to the northwest. Mmmm Mmmm good. We tried to work off all the good stuff by hiking for awhile in the Olympic National Park. A large part of the park is closed due to heavy snow, but we still had some beautiful territory to explore.

Tomorrow we plan to drive Hwy 101 down the coast to Ocean Shores. You may have read the book or seen the movie base on the book titled “The Tale of the Traveling Pants”. I’ve decided I could write a book called “The Tale of the Traveling Windbreaker”. We realized Mark has been wearing that green jacket since his first trip to Bulgaria back in 1993. Oh the places that jacket has been. Time to get a new jacket!
