{out for a walk} meadowdale


This weekend was my first spent in Seattle instead of Sequim since Ryan and I moved here.  All in all it was a pretty mellow and enjoyable time with the highlights for me being a lovely walk in the woods and the start of my Week In The Life Minibook.....my first craft time in weeks : )

Saturday was our walk with Ryan's cousin and his girlfriend to a beautiful place called Meadowdale Beach Park. The 1 and a 1/4 mile hike (each way) is entirely shaded with a canopy giant green trees until you arrive at the beach. Here's a peak at what we saw.....

Lots of wildflowers in different colors.....

We took the doggies (Ryan's cousin has two Miniature Schnauzers pictured in the collage above.....one is swimming in the ocean with a stick in his mouth and a giant crane in the background.....he loves to fetch!).....

And lots of looking up.....

However, our day actually started out together at Ryan and my place for a homemade breakfast! I made hash brown casserole and sweet sausages.....it was yummy!!!  We have a limited number of cable channels at the moment, one being The Food Network.  Being use to only broadcast TV, I am thoroughly enjoying all the cooking shows right now.  That plus having lots of counter space and a dishwasher (which we didn't have in our last place) has given me the desire to cook!  I can see some food/recipe posts in my future ; )  <3 Carrie


  1. awesome carrie! that park looks magical! I love being in the woods and near water! can't wait for some yummy recipes from you!

  2. Oohhh I love long walks. Lovely photos, looks like a great place for relaxing.


  3. great blogging minds think alike! I also went on a hike last weekend and it was so amazing, although it didn't lead to a beach like yours. Super jealous about that :)
