I’ve had this post saved in my drafts since early June! Eek! My memory of this trip is a bit hazy now, but I’ll try my best to recap everything.
The later half of our time in Seattle was just as touristy as the first half. The boy’s parents took us to see Snoqualmie Falls, my first time! It was a lovely warm cloudy day and the falls were gorgeous! But nothing beats Niagara Falls. We didn’t adventure on any trails as it was almost lunch time and the boy’s parents were getting hungry. They took us to this quaint little restaurant down the road that they frequent around the area. I can’t remember what I ate, but I do remember it was very yummy!
One of the “hipster tourist” things I wanted to do was see the Fremont Troll. I found it very fitting because the boy and I live in Fremont. Ha. Luckily, there wasn’t a lot of people there photographing away that we were able to be all cute in private. Lol. The weather was a lovely cloudy day - perfect lighting for pictures! The troll was pretty cool too see. Although, there was some graffiti on the top of his head that ruined this great sculpture.
Our next stop was the Space Needle! I heard it’s a MUST do while in Seattle. I wonder why? Lol. They were doing construction on the observation deck as they are upgrading the structure. I guess there were metal bars before and now there’s this clear thick glass to better view the beautiful cityscape. It was actually terrifying leaning up against the glass and sitting on the bench - being up that high, it felt a bit scary! You can’t tell in the photos, but I’m freaking out about how high up we are. Nonetheless, Seattle is one amazing place to visit and see.
The lighting was a bit tricky up there. The sun would peek out every now and then. It made me look very tan while it made the boy look very milky. Lol. But that’s how I like him. *insert cheesy smile
If I remember this correctly, after Snoqualmie Falls the boy and I visited one of his lads somewhere in Seattle for some brewery hopping and catching up. It was nice meeting one of the boy’s closest friends. He has like seven of them and they all live in different states and countries. I’m crossing each off my list and I believe I have one more to meet! The atmosphere in Seattle is A LOT different than when going to a brewery in the bay area. It’s a lot more quiet and chill and relaxing. Very refreshing difference!
I asked if we were close to the beach and we zoomed to the nearest beach - about 10 minutes away! So jelly of how close everything is. The beach, the brewery, the market. It’s such a drive going anywhere back home. Anyways, the beach was gorgeous and lovely and we were just in time to catch the sunset. Also, I saw the cutest lil corgi playing volleyball on the beach. This place is magical, I thought.
After our time in Seattle, we drove up to Vancouver to hang and catch up with his other lad. I didn’t take too many photos while up there, so I’m not sure if there will be a part three post. But I’m also a little distracted because I’m currently jamming out to HAIM’s latest album Something To Tell You. It’s been on repeat the last several days.
I. Cannot. Stop.
I just realized…this is my second post this week! AH! Look at me, going beyond what I challenged myself in the last post. It’s amazing how positivity can change everything and how it goes hand-in-hand with consistency and accountability.
Cheers to the end of the week!
