First weekend of summer!

In order to celebrate the summer solstice (and also the one year anniversary of our engagement) Ryan and I decided to go for a picnic and a hike near Lake Cushman on the peninsula. Unfortunately, all did not go as planned. First of all, despite predictions for some sun, we never saw any. Then, the road to the trail we planned to hike was closed. And finally, we couldn’t find the park where we planned to picnic! So we ended up eating our picnic in the car (overlooking the lake) while looking at a map to decide where to go instead. We ended up at Westhaven State Park, which apparently is the place to surf in Washington State. I have to say I wasn’t too impressed with the surf, but I’ll assume it was just a bad day for it. I was impressed, though, with the number of people out there trying to make the best of a rather dreary day!

Today we decided to do some work around the house. We went to Lowe’s and bought ourselves our very own ladder and then removed the bird nest from our dryer vent (don’t worry, the birds were done for the season and had moved out), put a cover over the vent to keep them from coming back, and scrubbed the birdie poo-poo off the side of our house. Phew! Good work!

  1. Sounds like our weekend went like yours. Had to run to the club, then it took 1 1/2 hours to go from there to the zoo (bad traffic) arrived at 1:00 – drove around for 30 minutes (no parking available) left and headed for home. Ended up at movie instead. We were setting in the zoo parking lot @ 9:00 on Sunday however, no trouble finding parking, some animals still sleeping, but saw most things. Were done sightseeing about the time the families started arriving about 1:00. Left and headed to a friends house for dinner. Things worked out in the end.
