I never got past entering Oregon in my blogging of the trip out West...so here I go again! I'm hoping to be done with this by the end of the week...the trip was only two months ago...lol!
When we entered Washington state, the sun was just going down. A few hours later, we caught sight of Seattle- it was neat to see the Space Needle in person after hearing friends and family speak of it.
We walked around the city for an hour or so and found this cool art place
but it was nearing midnight and we still had a few hours on the road to reach our final destination of Bellingham! At about 2 am, we pulled into town and a few hours later had our first interaction with the seaside town police...
After a few hours of restless sleep, my brother and I drove down by the water, which was absolutely gorgeous! There were even people windsurfing or paragliding- not sure which.
We went for a hike near one of the colleges- I don't remember which. We climbed many stairs up and up and were finally rewarded with some pretty nice views of Bellingham!!
I attempted to take a picure of myself here, but the sunlight was hitting me wrong- still, it was a nice view ;)
Later that evening, my brother slept away in our rented motel room and I decided to head down to the shore. I walked along the tiny town, where in the middle square they were hosting a family movie night. I really loved the atmosphere there- very family friendly!
The moon above the sea was cool looking and I couldn't resist snapping a shot!
I watched the sun set over the water, thankful to get to be by the ocean again. Seriously, it was so pretty! With the boats floating in the water...ah. Perfection!
I still had a week in Washington and we were off to Canada a few days later...stay tuned for my (way late!) pictures! :)
