Seattle, part 4

I’m so sorry, this has taken FOREVER!  If you feel the need to refresh your memory about the rest of the trip, click on “travel” under the categories on the sidebar, and all the Seattle pictures will come up for you. 

Day 5 of our trip was dedicated to a trip to Bainbridge Island, which means our first ride on a ferry!

Goodbye, Seattle!

Hello, Bainbridge Island!

While we were on the island, we walked along the docks and looked at the boats, we ate at a really good outdoor seafood restaurant, and we began hiking looking for a beach.  When we discovered that the distance around the island was much longer than it looked on the map, we hiked back and explored the downtown area. 

While we were dinking around near the ferry terminal waiting for the next ferry, we happened upon a beach!

On the ferry ride back to Seattle, we had a great view of Mt. Ranier in the distance.  Look close.  See it?

The next day, we left for home.  Our first order of business…to take a picture to prove that it didn’t rain AT ALL while we were in Seattle!  That’s us, all packed up and ready to go home.  And that’s a clear blue early morning sky in the background!

In Montana, we saw a real forest fire!  Not that we want any homes to be destroyed or anything, but it was exciting to see it in person!  You can see the helicopter with the big water bucket in the distance.  We saw it refill in a little river on the other side of the interstate.

And that completes our trip!  We had SUCH a good time.  We would all love to go back again.  I think Seattle has a good chance of becoming a favorite vacation destination for me!

    I love that first picture in this set. I shows the sisterhood or similarities and the uniqueness of the three of you. You are all pretty amazing young women.
