A beautiful sunset saying goodnight to the Pacific Northwest. I am always surprised by by the shock that comes over me by the radiant glow from the sun! There is nothing in nature so breathtaking (besides my daughter).
My birthday part 2, going to Bainbridge Island and back to Seattle by ferry. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
I definitely need to take advantage of the fact that I live near the best area for ferries, I always forget just how fun and beautiful those trips are. I had never been to Bainbridge Island before, the whole land boasted of barely touched nature. Sparsely spaced houses surrounded by the woods of Washington, I imagine this is how the entire state used to look before becoming so populated and commercialized. Taking trips like this really makes me appreciate living in this part of the world. I love living in these lush, beautiful landscapes of the Pacific Northwest!
So after visiting IFly for a weightless safe skydiving experience, I spent the evening in Bellevue eating sushi with a friend and my family. While entering the city, the clouds were nestled around the tops of the skyscrapers; lights illuminated the branches of trees lining the streets. There’s nothing like the liveliness and modern environment of being in the city, especially when you have lived away from it for a few years.
In the dead of winter, you see skeletons of what were at one point lush greenery and bright flowers. Luckily for me, I live in the Pacific Northwest, where Evergreens run aplenty. Even when I view fields of naked trees, many of our plants hold tight to their beautiful leaves and encircle the bare trees with warmth. One reason I love living in the Northwest is the consistency of my green environment. No matter where you look, you will find the enduring spirit of life.
Lately the weather has been at the warmer end of a winter’s day in the Pacific Northwest, so I decided to take my daughter to a play area called Sunset Park. This space encompasses walking paths, a playground, sports fields, and an amazing view of Mount Rainier. Definitely a great view while watching my child play!
