I Fell in Love at the Seaside














Blazer: Forever 21; Top: American Eagle (similar 1, similar 2); Jeans: Paige Denim; Shoes: ShoeDazzle

Last night Ben and I picked up two gyros, greek fries and baklava and headed down in the warm first night of summer to eat on the Old Town dock. We sat looking out at the sun setting on the glimmering water, watched the trains go by, and saw a proposal too! It was a gorgeous night and I think it kicked off our last three weeks here (and actually we'll only both be around for about two of them - next week and the second week of July). I'm going to miss the beautiful Puget Sound more than anything. These are views you cannot beat. We then took a drive down the waterfront and up around the five-mile loop drive that goes around the edge of Point Defiance park. The raccoons were out en masse and we snapped a few photos of them as well!

This morning we woke up early to drop friends off at the bus station and I've been up ever since editing photos and watching the sun get higher in the sky. It's already a gorgeous summer day and we're headed down the street to a blues and brews block party that runs from one to ten p.m. I'm hoping we're not in it for that long, but I'm sure the boys will be tasting as long as they can. The main draw (other than the beer) is that it's within walking distance of our apartment and we're going with another couple that live in our building so we can safely make it to and fro without worrying about taxis. 

Have a great Saturday! Linking up with Sunday Style.
