Happy Fourth!

It was a low key Fourth for us.  We decided against riding on the road since there were parades and many people out in their cars.  More cars equals more opportunities for being run over. 
I love a good grocery store.  We went by the Metropolitan Market looking for brand of Spice Hunter garlic pepper we like.  There was no joy to be had.   Looks like we'll be buying it in bulk from Amazon.  The market has a beautiful floral department.

This is the olive bar.  We got garlic giant lima beans in olive oil and cornichons.  Vampires need not visit us tonight, we are well protected at this point.

Mmmmmm, ground up liver.  My favorite.

After returning home, we went for a walk.  It was about 3 miles.  Jim has shin splints from yesterday, I have sore quads.  Today we strolled.  This is historic downtown Issaquah.  It's just cuter than a bug.  Growth has come to the surrounding areas in the form of massive housing developments.  Unfortunately, road construction has not kept pace with the number of people who have come to the area.

If you're in the Seattle area, try to visit a Metropolitan Market.  They really are a destination grocery store.
