After spending five nights and six days in Seattle, I have come to the conclusion (as expected) that I'm absolutely in love. Both Patrick and I feel completely inspired, more than ever, to work hard, save our money, and get to Washington. I cannot even explain the beauty of Seattle, the kindness we encountered, and the memories we shared. Seattle is definitely a big city, yet remains quaint and charming. I have so many pictures I would like to share with you guys, so I will be having several posts, each with a theme. Today, the wilderness & outdoors is my focus!
While at the Joanna Newsom & Robin Pecknold show (which, unfortunately, I could not bring my camera to), the lovely couple sitting next to us (in the VERY top row, which was unbearably hot since Seattle doesn't have A.C. & it happened to be about 80 that night.. the rest of our nights were a cool 60 or so), recommended Discovery Park. I was imagining just a big, open, green field with lots of flowers & such. Luckily I wore jeans & Keds, but Patrick wore flip flops, & you can imagine our shock when we realized Discovery Park is more of an actual HIKE! Nevertheless, the park was absolutely beautiful & a must-see if you are ever in the area. We earned our pho that afternoon after five miles of walking up steep paths & rocky trails.. but more on the pho later. I hope you enjoy the beauty of Discovery Park & the Puget Sound, as we were lucky enough to encounter it!
