Welcome to Summer in the Pacific Northwest! On the occasional Summer weekend off, Tanya, Lily and I like to get out of the city and explore all that the beautiful state of Washington has to offer- and after hearing about the gorgeous Whidbey Island, we decided to visit! The first step was getting there.

It was an easy decision!

This has been a busy traveling month for us! Even though we now live in Seattle [by way of Los Angeles and Boston], I’m originally from a little town in Massachusetts called Dartmouth.

On our even continuing tour of Seattle’s local parks, we headed over to Magnuson Park located right along the banks of Lake Washington.

We did a nice little walk around the paths and since it had rained recently Lily saw this as an opportunity to play in its swampy goodness.

Ever since we moved up to Seattle I’ve been having a lot of fun exploring the great parks around this city. It seems like there’s great ones around every block, from Saint Edward to Gas Works Park. On this occasion, I visited Carkeek Park which is located in the north west section of the city on the Puget Sound. It boasts salmon running in Pipers Creek, to eagle colonies feeding on the beach. It’s a regular animal haven!
