Washington State

 

Even though these photos were taken in 2014, I remember that day like it was yesterday.

The Northwest of the US, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful places in the US. On this day, my dream came true when I saw Mt. Rainier with my own eyes. I cried. Driving around Seattle area was a wonderful experience too!

My eldest daughter, since she was in middle school, always wanted to attend the University of Washington to study Marine Biology. We took a mom-daughter drive from NM to California, then drove up the coast to Washington. It was amazing!

While in Seattle area, we found a trail that lead to a pDSC_0001ark next to Lake Washington and sat for a couple hours to take in the beauty.

We also took the opportunity to have lunch on Puget Sound – a little hello to the fabulous waiter at the Red Robin who made our day even better.

We then walked along the boardwalk and took in the sights and sounds.

 

Our visit wouldn’t of been complete without driving around UDUB and the Seattle Aquarium

I will add more photos of the trip in later posts. I miss the west coast! I hope she never gives up on her dream ❤
