Mike and I have enjoyed living here thus far - the abundance of natural beauty feeds our adventurous souls. You can drive any direction away from the city and you'll find something completely new.
I visited Vashon Island with my dear friend, Becky, and her boyfriend Mike. We decided to be "tourists" together and to take a ferry to the island - a short trip across the Puget Sound.
It was quiet and peaceful, a sleepy island that's just minutes away from the mainland. We visited the lighthouse, the hardware store (a classic restaurant on the strip) and stopped for some Kombucha on tap at the Minglement- deeeeelish!
Over Thanksgiving weekend we binged watched a lot of Twin Peaks. So when we saw a hike with the name "twin falls" we had to go. It's not the falls from the show, but named appropriately so. Much of the series was filmed nearby in North Bend (so I'll surely have more twin-peaks related content soon!). A scenic hike, just an hour outside of the city.
We can wait to explore more!
