Summer most definitely came to Seattle this weekend! I was determined to spend as much time out in the sunshine as possible. After getting up early and walking 5.5 miles around Greenlake with Casey, Sarah and I headed to Golden Gardens for an afternoon at the BEACH!
Until we drove over there yesterday, I had no idea that something so gorgeous was hiding just ten short minutes from my house. Literally breathtaking.
While the pictures are pretty, they do no justice to actually sitting there and taking it all in.
The grass and beach were filled with families, dogs, picnickers, sunbathers, adorable babies, and everyone else in Seattle.
The sun was hot, but there was a wonderful cool breeze coming off the mountains. It was perfect.
This was my first of many days exploring the Seattle beaches, and I can’t wait to try out all of the others. I feel so lucky to live somewhere so beautiful!
After a long day in the sun, we cooled down back at the house before heading out for a delicious dinner with Casey. We tried a new (to us) spot in Fremont called Chiso for vegetarian sushi!
Starting with edamame…
And a veggie tempura appetizer. My favorite was the eggplant!
Casey got some sort of yummy vegan veggie and rice bowl.
While Sarah and I split a few sushi rolls!
Sarah was a fan of the tempura onion ring.
One of the things I missed the most when I stopped eating fish was sushi. Vegetarian sushi is the perfect substitute!
A perfect end to a perfect Seattle day.
