30/52: Friday & Saturday Night Dinners, Bon Voyage and our first 6 miler!

Pan Roasted Muscovy Duck Breast with wilted greens, duck fat almonds, summer savory jus and fresh cherry relish - $28

On Friday night we met up with my Pop and Rosemary at their hotel in downtown Seattle, then walked across the street to the Purple Cafe and Wine Bar for our 7:30 reservations.  I've had this place on my restaurant radar for years and it was delightful.  The menu is extremely thought out and paired nicely with an amazing wine list. The ambiance was beautiful and the service was amazing.  It's always fun to have dinner in the city, especially in summertime.

Saturday was the bon voyage down at King Street Station where my parents boarded the Rocky Mountaineer for their Canadian Rail adventure.  They have a 10 day trip from Seattle through Vancouver, Whistler, Kamloops, Lake Louise and Banff ahead of them.

Saturday night was dinner with friends at the Phinney Market Pub and Eatery in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood.  A perfect way to end an amazing Saturday.

Before we drove down to Portland on Sunday, we had our first 6 mile walk through our West Seattle neighborhood.  Our route took us down along Beach Drive, through the length of Lincoln Park and back through our neighborhood. We are really trying to stick to our goals and increase our fitness.  Well done for a busy weekend!
