In typical Seattle fashion, June has come and gone, and we're now smack dab in the middle of Junuary. Yes, Junuary. The lovely part of June where the sun goes into hiding and you remember that your tights, coats, and sweaters aren't done for the year. It happens. Washingtonians like to say that summer doesn't start until after the 4th of July, and that holds true almost every year.
While I'm a sucker for sunshine and just about all things summer, I must confess, I kind of love these cooler days. After a few weeks straight of sunny, warm days, these cool cloudy days bring out my inner adventurer, so over the weekend, my friend Ian and I headed to Discovery Park to visit the lighthouse. Ya'll, isn't this the prettiest place? Even though I'm practically a lifelong resident, I continue to be blown away by the beauty of this state and am constantly dumbfounded that gorgeous places like this exist and are easily accessible within the city limits of Seattle.
I think many of us are guilty of this, but I totally get dressed based on whatever I'm doing, and since I was visiting the lighthouse, I decided to opt for a slightly nautical look. I'm currently obsessed with my new tote from Conversation Pieces: the gold grommets around the top just kill me, and the combination of handles and straps makes it the perfect carryall for a day adventuring. Since it was a bit chilly, but I knew I'd be doing quite a bit of walking to get to the lighthouse, I opted for comfy shoes, jeans, a lightweight sweater, and a super cute pinwheel ring to boot!
The lighthouse was gorgeous, and the beach nearby was piled high with driftwood. I was pretty much in Northwest heaven. The walk back from the beach was full of lush, green trees, and lots of birds. I got especially excited when I spotted an owl flying towards a tree and then saw that it had landed next to another owl. They were so cute all cozy on the branch together! While we lucked out and were rain free at the beach, we did not get so lucky on our walk to the bus. In fact, a torrential downpour started up, so we were totally soaked by the time we made it to the bus. But hey! What's a good adventure without some crazy weather, right?
All in all, it was a great day spent exploring, looking out on the Puget Sound, and having a grand adventure. Have you guys had any awesome adventures recently?
