Green Berries

Lord Hills Park in Monroe, Washington

When I heard that this week’s theme for FriFotos, on Twitter, was green I immediately thought of a hike we did at Lord Hills Park near Monroe, Washington last summer.  If you are in the area, definitely check it out (at the end of this post I’ve listed some information). I like this green leaf so much […]

What does Adventure mean to you?

An unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity. –Google’s definition My definition is less ‘hazardous’.  My definition is something that you don’t do every day.  This allows me to find Adventure in a lot of different areas of my life.  Last weekend’s Adventure of the Month is a prime example.  And, in that case […]

January 2012 Adventure of the Month

When I decided to take on ‘Adventure of the Month’ for 2012, I wanted to prove to myself and to others that you don’t have to spend a lot of money and travel long distances for adventure.  I’m like everyone else and sometimes find it hard to enjoy what’s in my back yard.  Bring on […]

Seattle Aquarium and Pike’s Place Market

The third day of ‘Tour Seattle’ is now complete and as expected it didn’t go as expected, but we still had fun through the teeth-chattering cold.  The initial plan was the Seattle Aquarium and a one-hour Harbor Cruise.  I sure know how to pick a weekend for ‘Tour Seattle’.  We’ve received the worse weather of […]

EMP, Pacific Science Center, Space Needle

Day two of ‘Tour Seattle’ was a winter wonderland and included the Experience Music Project, the Space Needle, and the Pacific Science Center.  All three places were threatening to close early due to the weather.  I’m so glad they all remained open until sometime after we left for the day.  I had envisioned the day […]

Museum of Flight

Today was day one of ‘Tour Seattle’ and it included a visit to the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field.  I’ll admit this was not on my bucket list, and even after going there it didn’t get added.  The quality of the museum is fantastic, but it’s just not my thing.  I think my friend […]

Museum of Glass

On January 8th my friend and I visited the Museum of Glass in Tacoma, Washington.  We live in Western Washington so it was a quick adventure south of us. We spent a lot of time outside enjoying the balmy and sunny 50 degree weather, which is pretty great for January in Western Washington.  The reflective […]

Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Serene (almost) – July 17, 2011

This hike to Bridal Veil Falls and Lake Serene was both difficult and entertaining.  Julie had to cancel the day before because of an event her son was doing and she didn’t want to feel rushed…neither did the rest of us.  John cancelled the morning of because his shoulder was still hurting from our Barclay […]
