Some "fancy crab" at Pike Place Market
Yep. Heading off for the Emerald City tomorrow early...very early...so I should be packed and ready to go right? Right! Am I? Nope! I have been such a slacker in prepping. My suitcase sits half packed, my boarding passes just now (and I mean JUST now) have been printed, and I'm still pretty sure I'm taking way too many of all the wrong things. However, I could be taking nothing more than a burlap sack and I'd still be "ready." I am in need of a get away. This is actually a birthday present to myself. I'll be 28 on the 29th and a weekend in Seattle is just what I want! It doesn't even need to be wrapped! This was to be no grand trip when I was planning it. It happened on a whim, a friend's agreement, and a great sale from Southwest. Little did I know what would shortly be in store!
Now, It's no secret that I kind of like that crabfishin' show and some of the dudes, and I was hoping to maybe get to see one or two people, but didn't count on anyone being around given they often scatter when the boat docks. Still, Seattle and everything it and surrounding areas have to offer is enough for me...but then...enter "CATCHCON..." Discovery is hosting a huge event this weekend filled with boats, crews, and fans from across the globe. It promises to be a lot of fun and I'm excited to meet a lot of the people I've gotten to know online and to see a lot of the friends I've made in person again too. Oh the shenanigans to come... (will later be posted here! lol!)
