Day 43 – Today was our last day in the Seattle area, so we crammed in a few more things while I had the day off.
We started by going to Gas Works Park to let the kids climb on the big pipes like I did as a kid, and also to watch the seaplanes land in Lake Union.
I even joined in the climbing fun!
We then did something I had been waiting to do for many years! We took the kids bike riding on the Gilman Trail at Marymoor Park in Redmond. I’m so glad Tripp learned to ride his bike without training wheels on our way here!
We ended the day by kayaking on Lake Union near downtown Seattle. We didn’t stay out long, because the waves were a little crazy (see the picture below… there were a ton of sailboats out tonight for some reason), but it felt good to have done it for a little while. We put in at a tiny chunk of beach not too far from Gas Works Park.
Here is where we put in:
Tomorrow, we head to Leavenworth for a few days, which means we are headed toward Arkansas!
I officially declare this, the SUMMER OF GEORGE!!
