Last Wednesday a few of us spent the day with my little sister Megan to celebrate her upcoming wedding. Instead of the traditional bachelorette party, she wanted a day of relaxation. One of her dear friends from Cal Maritime, Beth, organized the day for us. We started the day at Banya 5 - an amazing Urban Spa located near the space needle. I had their honey & sea salt scrub that was absolutely divine! Banya 5 has a great tea room and even a napping room. Next we headed to the Walrus and the Carpenter a restaurant in Ballard that Megan has wanted to visit. The Walrus and the Carpenter is an Oyster bar with a focus on French style cuisine in a casual rustic setting. The food was AMAZING and I would recommend this spot to anyone visiting Ballard. We ended the day with a private yoga class at a studio in Ballard. It was the perfect day!
