After reading the book Hiking Through by Paul Stutzman I have come to really appreciate the zero day! When Thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail a zero day is one spent in a town, in a motel or hostel, eating in restaurants and just taking it easy.
|Coast Gateway Hotel in Seatac|
We were able to book our hotel through Hotwire.com for $68/night plus tax. Great deal!! When my husband asked me to join him on a trip to Seattle area I knew exactly what I wanted to do while he was in his training all day. But he and several friends just didn't get it. What! Spend all day in the room...blogging, knitting and reading!!! To me it sounded like bliss to be able to do things I love to do without any responsibilities--no dogs to feed; meals to fix; dishes or laundry to be washed! Like I said, bliss:)
The picture above is of the Hospitality Room where a Continental Breakfast is served until 10:00 each morning. They had a good selection so I had a nice breakfast each morning.
I promised my husband I would use the fitness room while we were staying at this hotel but was disappointed the treadmill was "out of order". I ended up the eliptical but could only do about 15 minutes on it. It's just plain hard!!! Give me my treadmill any day! We really enjoyed our visit to this hotel and would be happy to stay here again. Nice facilities, comfortable room, friendly staff!
Last night we ate at Zoopa's in Tukwila then did a bit of shopping. Hubby enjoyed a visit to Nordstrom Rack and I was frustrated by a trip to Joann Fabrics. I purchased a cover for my iPad from Nordstrom Rack but will have to show it later; I sent the camera off in the car with my hubby:(
Today check out is at noon so will have a few hours to kill before hubby is finished with his training. I'm sure I can find SOMETHING to do:) We will make a visit to Trader Joe's, one of our favorite stores, before heading home!
What is your idea of the perfect Zero Day?
Have a great day!
