This was the first weekend that I haven’t had any plans in quite some time. Between the move and various travel plans, it’s been a very busy summer. The down side was that T has a temp job on weekends until the end of October. 😦 So, to cheer him up I decided to surprise him with a little breakfast at a place in our neighborhood I’d read about on Yelp.
As we walked up Market, there was this highly creepy marketing installation:

We also passed one of my favorite public art pieces in Ballard – a series of marine sculptures:
My favorite is the jellyfish:
Finally, we arrived at our destination – Cafe Besalu. It’s a DELICIOUS french pastry place. There was a line out the door when we got there at 8:30, despite the fact that we’d walked through a totally empty neighborhood. It was totally worth it though, as the pastries were amazing. Luckily, I managed to snap a picture before we devoured these:
If you are ever in the Ballard area, I HIGHLY recommend this place. Yummy!
