Sunset Walk

My aunt and me hopped in her giant vehicle and went down to the Des Moines Marina to visit my uncle at his boat. My aunt was tired so she parked on a bench with Sammie while my uncle and I walked up the pier.

It was a gorgeous evening with the sun setting on one side of the pier and a sliver of the moon hanging over the other. The camera on my phone does it no justice!

I had an awesome time hanging out with my aunt and uncle! Next time I hope to have pics from the water… My uncle said he’d take me out on his boat before the summer is over. πŸ™‚

The View From Here

We had a gloriously beautiful weekend here in Seattle! I was able to get out and enjoy a bit of it. But part of it was spent inside IKEA helping customers… Still, I didn’t have to sacrifice all the sunny days to the big blue box. I’m so grateful that we got that sunny break in the weather, it meant a world of good for my sun loving soul.

I’ll admit that all my pics aren’t postcards worthy but you can at least get the gist of how gorgeous it was.

I also went down to the Des Moines marina to watch the sunset.

Beautiful, right? I totally enjoyed it! I hope, along with most of Seattle, I’m sure, that this means a really great summer ahead. It would be the nicest homecoming present to have my first summer back be as spectacular as these last few days were.

I hope your neck of the woods is as pleasant as mine has been lately and that all is well in your world! Until next time…

Sun In Shade

Walkway to Boeing from the commuter train in Renton, WA.

I woke up today and the sun was shining! Living in Seattle frequently means going without this natural source of vitamin D and I find myself yearning for the near constant sunshine (no matter the season) in Charlotte.

Still, I’m here in the Pacific Northwest and I’m trying to re-acclimate myself. This is my hometown after all. Days like today make me anxious for summer. I hope it is a good one: sunny, warm, and happy!

I hope you all are having an amazing Wednesday. I’ll catch you tomorrow!

PS I took the picture above while walking to work a while back… Didn’t get a chance to snap one today. πŸ™‚
