I mentioned that I'd been up in the Seattle area a while ago. I was in Bremerton, to be exact, just across the Puget Sound from Seattle. Miss C and I were there as her high school graduation present, which was geared around her getting to spend time with two longtime friends who live up in that area. It was a very fun trip, and we both had a grand time.
Miss C is not big on my sharing photos of her here, so you will just have to imagine three teens laughing and goofing around and grinning ear to ear for an entire weekend.
But I can show you some photos of our beautiful accommodations for the weekend. I quickly abandoned the hotel option (knowing now Miss C likes to hang around where we stay, and envisioning the discomfort of trying to fade into the background while the teens occupied themselves in a hotel room) and found a great cottage via HomeAway.com.
all those jellyfish.)
Here's a wider view, so you can see what a great spot we had.
This is what you'd see if you turned around.
The little living room provided a full view of the bay.
The place was decorated with charm, and the little kitchen was just right for us.
The sound of gulls crying was a peaceful background song.
There was a lovely deck, where I sat and painted one afternoon.
But it was the water that kept my attention and made me reach for my camera time and time again.
I'd go back in a heartbeat. If you're in the mood for a waterside escape, you can find the info about this cottage here. Tell them I sent you!
