Mammogram and Monet

I had my annual mammogram yesterday in Seattle and we decided to make a day of it.

Before I get into our day, I so love getting test results within hours instead of days.  And ‘benign’ is always the result that I 😊.

After we left my provider in the University district of Seattle, we went to Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle.

We started our adventure with a stop at Le Pichet for lunch. Like the restaurants in British Columbia, this one requires proof of COVID 19 vaccination.  Proof of vaccination will be required for all restaurants in King County starting October 25th.   Le Pichet and other restaurants are just a bit ahead.  Their salade verte, a bib lettuce salad with mustard and hazelnut vinaigrette, is the best in town (in our opinion).

After that we took a stroll through the Pike Place Market.  There are still some dahlias on display. It was fairly bustling for a Thursday.

We were ‘forced’ to stop at our favorite jewelry store, Goldmine Design. The owner is from Havre, MT and is a delight.  I’ve been wanting something to commemorate my cancer ‘cure’ and we found the perfect necklace!  It is one of a kind and I will treasure it!

After leaving the jewelers, we were off to our final destination of the day.  We have been wanting to see the Monet in Etretat exhibit at the nearby Seattle Art Museum, aka SAM.  The exhibit ends October 17th, so we were cutting it close!

This exhibition shows 10 of his paintings that are set in the town of Étretat on the Normandy Coast.  He painted these during the 1880’s.  The exhibit also has 12 paintings by other Impressionist artists.

It is a small exhibit, but we can never miss a chance to see Impressionist art!

“Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love.”

Claude Monet
