Late September and early October in Seattle is my favorite time to visit. The leaves are bursting with shades of orange, there is a chill in the air that feels refreshing walking in the streets with a sweater on and a pumpkin spice latte in hand from the original Starbucks in Pike Place. The Puyallup Fair is raging in September and people are putting out their elaborate pumpkins in October. Seattlites have always lived on the stranger side of life and this is reflected in the crazy decorating people do for Halloween. I can´t wait to visit Seattle in a week, I miss it like crazy in the fall.
