One of the things I absolutely love and appreciate when we visit our daughter in Seattle (besides the weather and shopping) is the way Jean plans the adventures and places we go to.
The weather was like springtime in Ontario even though it’s winter. On this particular day, we took a road trip along a windy road and hilly lakeside community. The homes are gorgeous and the grass is always greener in Seattle.
We stopped at a couple of parks with a great view of Lake Washington. It’s wonderful how time spent in nature rejuvenates us. Quite a drastic change of scenery from the day we spent in downtown Seattle with the hustle and bustle of Pike Place Market.
Jean’s jacket is from a clothing exchange and she bought these $180 plaid jeans on sale for $30 at Nordstom Rack a few years ago.
My black and red houndstooth coat is from Frank Lyman (if you follow my blog you’ve seen it already) My pants (also worn before) are a mini plaid pattern.
One of the things that makes Seattle so enjoyable is that it’s a city surrounded by beautiful scenery: parks, nature, lakes, islands, mountains–just what I need after the madding crown in downtown Seattle.
Take time for a walk in nature!
