What I have planned tomorrow is to do the Seattle Underground and Sub Seattle tour. If time permits, we may hit up Pike Place but I doubt we will. The touring is about 3 hours long. We need time to get back to the hotel to rest and change for church tomorrow night.
Sunday will be the crammed scheduled day. I plan to see all the big things in Seattle including taking my daughter to Charming Charlie!
Tonight I went to Bay Point Spa for a deep tissue massage because I have a really nasty stiff neck. The muscles in my neck is in so much pain it making me nauseated. If you haven't been to that place and live here in Bellevue, you must check it out. $70 for a one hour body massage and 30 minute foot massage with trigger point. This is not a lomi lomi tender massage. You are in one huge room with 9 big couches that convert to beds. They are complete with hole for your face when you go face down. These chairs are so comfortable. You do not undress. They use large towels on top of your body to allow movement over your muscles. It was amazing. This guy had me crying mommy. My muscles were so tender and he knew exactly where my problem areas were.
He even climbs on top of you and uses his knees to massage your glutes and uses his elbows to really get deep into your muscles. It was sore as heck but he really broke up the knots. I am not extremely tender in my right neck and shoulder area and have been applying my essential oil on it to help with the inflammation and pain. I am trying to continue to stretch my neck out to help get rid of the tightness.
After the massage, I found a harley store right next door. I ran in real quick to get a shot glass for Romel's collection and did some window shopping. They had cute little girl clothes, but they were really expensive.
Then I used Siri to help me find a place to eat. I went back to the same strip mall where I got my massage and she led me to this european restaurant. It was a very small establishment but when you walk in, you feel like you're in a completely different place!
I tried the wienerschnitzel. I've NEVER had it and decided to try it. It was SO GOOD! I also tried their house salad and that was also very delicious. As I was eating I was watching the cooks in the kitchen. They made me think of RJ. In their white coats and the chef in his very tall chef hat complete with feather. It was very unique. I took photos of them cooking all the food.
The chef came out of the kitchen and started talking to the customers. I was the only "brown" skinned person in there. I smiled at him and he approached me. He asked me if I was from Hawaii because I had a flower in my hair. I said yes. As soon as I said that his face lit up and he sat down with me throughout my dinner. We chatted about his life and where he was from. The server came up to ask me about dessert and I was going to get the creme brulee and the chef said, no. My apple strudel! I LOVE STRUDEL! As I ate it with him in front of me, he told me his recipe. Fuji apples, lemon zest, butter, and sugar. It was amazing! As I scarfed the strudel, he said you must try my sorbet! I make it from scratch! He went in the back and made me a bowl of raspberry and mango sherbet. It was so good! It was frozen fruit in a glass bowl and was absolutely refreshing.
He finally said his goodbye to me and headed back in the kitchen ensuring that I will not pay for the sorbet. That was a great way to end my work week. Thank you Chef!
