Lauren’s Seattle Trip

Hello everyone!  I’m sorry I haven’t written in a while.  I’ve been just slightly busy…sorry…

So I was in Seattle for a week!  It was so much fun!  My roommate and I went for a roadtrip,  which was absolutely amazing!  Here is recap of our trip!

Day 1: Leaving town and headed to Medford Oregon.

We stopped at a small rest-stop about 2 hours outside of Sacramento and took pictures.  It was absolutely gorgeous!  And obviously, we had to pull over to see the Oregon sign.

Day 2: Left Medford, drove to Florence Oregon, through Salem and Portland, made our way to Seattle.

Aren’t these pictures gorgeous?  Both of these were taken in Oregon and I cannot get over how beautiful the scenery was.  It is so green!

Day 3: Seattle!  Space Needle, Chihuly Glass Museum and Pikes Place Market

These pictures are by far some of my favorites.  The Space Needle is always a beautiful landmark and I love taking pictures of it.  The Chihuly Glass Museum was Amber’s favorite thing, and the pieces were just amazing!  We also walked the 1.5 miles to Pikes Place Market where we got to look around for the first time.  Finally, we were able to go back to the Space Needle to watch the sunset.

Day 4: Zoo, Aquarium, Underground Tour

Lots of animals!  We had tons of fun walking around the zoo and the aquarium.  I loved the peacock for Haley and flamingos for mom.  We then went to the aquarium and I loved the weird feather looking thing and the clown fish.  It was fun to walk around and see what they had to offer.  We then finished the night going on an underground tour.  If you are ever in Seattle, I highly suggest doing the underground tour.  It is a lot of fun and perfect for a family!

Day 5: Harbor Cruise and Whidbey Island

The harbor cruise was about an hour long and a perfect time to relax.  We got some pictures of the skyline and lots of random pictures as well.  We also went to Whidbey Island, which was a bit of a disappointment because everything closed early on a Sunday.  Boo Hoo!

Day 6: Canada and Kerry Park

What an amazing day!  We decided to try to go to Canada since we were so close anyway.  We actually found a park called Peace Park where we could cross the border without a passport.  If we wanted to go any further, we had to have a passport.  But we did it!!!  We also headed to Kerry Park, which is supposed to be the best spot to get a skyline picture of Seattle.  Honestly, it was a good view, but not our favorite.

Day 7: Leaving Seattle to Grants Pass Oregon

Before leaving Seattle, we stopped at Gas Works Park.  We weren’t sure if it was going to be any good, but it was absolutely awesome!  It was probably our favorite place and we wished we would’ve been able to spend more time there.  Both Amber and I thought that this was a better view of Seattle than Kerry Park.  We then drove home and stopped in Salem Oregon to see the capitol.  It was beautiful!

Day 8: Sundial Bridge and home!

If you have never been to Sundial Bridge in Redding California, you should definitely go!  It is so pretty and not many people stop there.  We took lots of pictures, but I won’t show too much.

Now, I know I showed you a lot, but now it’s time for the best pictures!  I took a small stuffed elephant by the name of Tantor.  And I took pictures of him all along the trip!  So enjoy lot of pictures of Tantor!

Yeah…we took a lot of pictures of him…

And finally, we recorded ourselves in vlog fashion to keep a memory of the trip.  If you want to watch the 8 videos of our trip click Seattle Roadtrip YouTube. Hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for going through our adventure through Washington.  It was a lot of fun and we cannot wait to go on another adventure!
