Our Favorite Place

Everyone has a happy place. Our's is the Olympic Peninsula.

It had been since August since our last trip. Will just started a new job last week. It was Saturday. We just needed to get away. And we did.

So what if it was sort of raining in Seattle and it was a brisk 38 degrees.

Nobody seemed to mind.

And then once we reached the peninsuula, we pleasantly found ourselves under clear skies and sunshine. The ocean was deep blue, the clouds were white and puffy, and the sun was sparkling like none other.

(by the way, this little photo above was taken at the Worldmark Resort where the Thomas Family Reunion is going to be this summer...for any Thomas' Family members wanting to get a little glimpse into the scenery)

The funny part of our day is, is that we brought the baby backpack to go hiking.

We never went hiking.

We brought the stroller to go on a walk. We never went on a walk.

We did do lots of sight-seeing, looking at maps, chasing sunshine whereever it was, and um...we spent 2 hours at the Sequim Costco, which was surprisingly relaxing compared to shopping at the Issaquah Costco.

But still, it was an adventure and it was FUN.

Until the next adventure...

Jenni, I'm going to that Worldmark resort on Friday for a girl's weekend. How is it? Did you have a nice time? I wish the peninsula was closer to us, but I'm so glad to be heading north on Friday. :)

Looks like you had a nice day. I think that we had the same hole in the clouds on Whidbey Island that you did at Sequim. Hey, and Costco is always fun!
