Girls’ Day Out

22 Apr

I’m sad that we missed the tulip festival we were supposed to attend — Spring came early to Washington this year — but thrilled that Amy and I got to enjoy a mini road trip together. Hours together in the car, on ferries, and enjoying a couple of adult beverages on the deck of a waterfront café then exploring a super-cute town gave us plenty of time to catch up. It was awesome.

Here are some pics from our journey to Port Townsend and back.

Mike and I visited that very spot back in 2013 with our friends Annelies and Yves. Thank goodness Amy and I had MUCH better weather!

This waterfront café was a great spot for a lunch break.

We really did have a great day out. It was good for both of us. I think Amy really enjoyed being chauffeured around all day. 🙂

I know I certainly enjoyed the company. I miss that kid, who isn’t technically a kid anymore, but who will always be one of my kids. <3

I’ll share some pics of the town in another post.

  1. Amy was photobomed twice..once by the seagull and then when she is sitting with the otters there’s a guy peeking out over some rocks..lol

    • LOL, I know! I didn’t bring my computer along so don’t have a way to edit pics. Eventually I’ll edit the otter photobomber out. The bird entertained us the whole time we sat at the café. 🙂

  2. Looks like you two had a wonderful day. Everything bloomed early this year, but at least you had beautiful weather to spend the day together.

    See you in a few hours. 🙂

    • We did have a fun day out. I miss spending time with the kids like that. They all turned into such good people. 🙂

      And yes, see you in a few hours!!! I’m so excited. 🙂
