storefront inspiration -- original Starbucks in Pike's Place Market, Seattle. A little aside... our first Christmas card as a married couple was us standing in the street with this Starbucks in the background.
The Seattle to Bainbridge Island ferry. Way too many people never go to Bainbridge. Huge mistake. Take advantage of a beautiful summer day and hop the 35 minute ferry to Bainbridge (just walk on unless you really need your car on the other side). On Bainbridge, walk up the main street, check out some art, grab a bite, have some ice cream at Mora, and generally just wander around enjoying the day. If you're over for dinner, try out Hitchcock's or Four Swallows!
