From now until the end of September I’ll be traveling in Washington State
When you grow your own, no time of the year seems like the best time to go away on a trip. Literally an hour before we were picked up to be taken to the airport I’d picked a carrier bag full of plump, green courgettes. I gave them away but lamented on the fact that I’d only had a few ripen for me before now. They and my tomatoes are just now coming into full swing.
Our house sitters will be profiting from the tomatoes in the greenhouse and I’m inviting friends to help themselves to the produce in the garden. For the next five weeks I and Josh will be far, far, away and enjoying some time off.
Whales to watch, Farmers Markets, and hiking trips
After almost a full day riding buses, trains, and planes we’ve made it to Seattle, where we’ll spend the next week rediscovering the city. It’s been years since I lived here and every time I come back it seems different. Since when has the city had light rail connecting the airport to downtown? I’m astonished at the city’s progress.
There are quite a few more stops on our travels around Washington State in the weeks to come – family and friends to see, whales to watch, farmers markets to take in, and two hiking trips to get in. There’s so much to see and so much to do that I sometimes wonder why I moved away from the Pacific Northwest.
I’ll be online and posting about our travels
Over the next month I will be blogging about once a week or when I’m able to. Our hiking trips will be taking us into the back country where we’ll have no electricity or technology but when I have something great to share I’ll be sure to share. I’ll also be posting photos on both my Instagram and Facebook pages if you’re not following me there yet.
