Alki Beach, Seattle

The day started off overcast, but as the clouds rolled away, it turned out to be a sunny day in Seattle with blue skies and not a cloud in sight!

We drove to beautiful Alki Beach, west side of Seattle.

No, this is not NYC.

Did you know there’s a Statue of Liberty on the west coast?

It’s a smaller replica of the one in New York Harbor.stature-of-liberty

If I lived in Seattle, I’d come here every week. 

Why can’t every day be a day at Alki Beach?

Have a happy week!

      Thank you Chy! You will love Seattle! I have more posts coming up about this fantastic city and my daughter’s beautiful eco boutique. London is an amazing city that I hope to visit someday, having only passed through and caught a glimpse of it from the bus, train and plane. I’ll stop by to see your photos of your trip. One of my dear blogging friends lives in London.
