Staycations

I’m very fortunate to live in such an amazing place.  I’ve been in Seattle for almost two years, and I can’t seem to get enough of it.  Whether I’m exploring some place new, or hitting up an old favorite, all my troubles and cares fade away.

When I’m staycationing here in the area, I usually have my dog, Chloe, with me.  She’d much rather be running around an 0ff-leash area, but I drag her along with me on my adventures.  It’s like trying to travel with a moody teenager.  I’ll have a post later on about the Disneyland of dog parks.

I especially love staycationing, because I get to go home to my own bed at night.  When traveling elsewhere, I tend to go for the higher-end hotels that make me feel at home.

Back to Seattle…There’s always something to do.  I never grow tired of walking through Pike Place Market, but it can get a bit hectic in the summer when the cruise ships dock.  It seems like everywhere you turn, there’s a beautiful park to explore; some big and some small.  Discovery Park is a great place to get lost.  Sunday’s, if you get there early, you can take a ride on a sail boat on Lake Union with the Center For Wooden Boats.  Sunny days are incredibly busy, and there’s only limited space.

Take a camera out and explore where you live.  Put yourselves in the shoes of tourists.  Go out and see something you may not have thought to go see.  The world is ours to explore.
