I’m not doing so well with this blogging to get the noise out of my head.
My husband and I went to Seattle this summer for vacation and to see my oldest daughter and her boyfriend. Of course we had to knock another park off the list.
We did the touristy thing the first day…up the Space Needle, rode the big wheel, visited Pike Place Market, stuck gum on the gum wall (then I clean gum off the bottom of my shoe), the pier and of course, Starbucks.
We spent the rest of the week going non-stop.
Crossing the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Canada Day:
Whale watching in kayaks (my first and LAST time in a tandem with my beloved):
Visited Leavenworth and had the best Bavarian pretzels and bratwurst with amazing mustards and sauerkraut:
Found gifts for the boys:
Watched fireworks from the Fremont Bridge after renting Lime Bikes and riding along the ship canal.
Visited the tide pools along Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach:
Hiked in the snow at Mt. Rainier:
And finally, visiting Mount St. Helens:
My time with my daughter was not long enough and while the weather held for most of the days, my husband was happy to be back in 80+ degree weather. I’ve missed Seattle, but not the traffic. We made a lot of memories in such a short time. Crush spent a week at the boarders and I will end with a picture from them that sums up how much fun he had:
