I am way behind on my posting, but here is our trip to Seattle, Washington August 15th-20th. My mother-in-law's Aunt and Uncle live up in Seattle on Lake Sammamish and we had the opportunity to go and visit them for a week. When we first got to Seattle, we headed over to the ferry which took us to the San Juan Islands. From there, we had the opportunity to spend a couple days on the island of Waldron which is clear up near the Canadian border. From San Juan island, Aunt Joyce and Uncle Gary picked us up in their boat and drove us to Waldron island. This island is only 4.6 square miles and only has about 100 full-time residents. The roads are all dirt and the only public building is a school. Although it sounds very boring, it was actually a gorgeous place and we had a lot of fun! We spent a lot of time at the beach, hiking, and driving motorcycles.
One of the days on the island we decided to head over to Roche Harbor on San Juan Island. We got to go in some million dollar yachts which were absolutely amazing! On the boat ride over we attempted whale watching, but had no luck:(.
We spent one day in Seattle which was a blast. We got to see all the touristy spots, the aquarium, the space needle, Pike's market, and Chris' favorites the Seahawks and Mariners stadiums.
The last day we spent at their lake house on Lake Sammamish. We went tubing on the lake and had a nice BBQ for lunch.
