Savoring Seattle Summer

Weather-wise this summer in Seattle has frankly been the summer of the century.  And those of you who have been here, know that a good (and let’s be honest, some summers they are rare, though this summer deliciously abundant) day in Seattle is hard to beat.

20130810_144243Literally, we are trying to drink it all in.  We spent the whole weekend at the water’s edge (we kind a had to distract ourselves as our other daughter is on the East Coast and we were really missing her).  A quick overnight super-treat to The Four Seasons.

20130810_141741Followed by an easy and fun day trip to Bainbridge Island.  If you have not yet been, treat yourself!  They have a delightful Saturday Farmer’s Market, fun state park Faye Bainbridge, charming town filled with restaurants and unique shops and more…

20130809_164254to say I was green with envy is an understatement more like blue with envy as this is literally her view from the back “yard”  Oh yes, that is a cruise ship in the background headed up to Alaska.

May I mentally refer to this summer light once the days get shorter and darker.


Happy Monday!
