I have an almost 16 year old son, who has his learner’s permit to drive. He wants to practice drive all the time, so this summer we have been going on adventures. He also loves photography and nature, so we’ve been getting out of the city, exploring places we’ve either never been or haven’t been to in a long time, and have created some photo journals of our excursions.
These adventures have reminded me why I love Seattle and the Puget Sound. Trees, flowers, water, mountains, sand, boats – we’ve got it all. This summer has been gorgeous with lots of sun and fantastic warm days. We’ve been to Mt. Rainier, Camano Island, and the Hood Canal, as well as all over Seattle.
So this blog post is a photo montage from our day trips. Enjoy the Pacific Northwest.
