Day Trip to the Kitsap Peninsula

Despite living a hop, skip, and jump away from the Edmonds-Kingston ferry terminal, we rarely find ourselves making our way over to the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas. In our three years living here, we’ve only ventured over a handful of times with activities ranging from taking a long bike trip to the coast, exploring Olympic …

Bike Trip to Bellingham

Despite having visited Fairhaven multiple times, both on our own as well as with family and friends who have come to visit, we haven’t spent much time exploring Bellingham. Our one experience included popping in a couple of breweries our friends recommended at the conclusion of our journey up Chuckanut Drive, but it had been …

Washington Hikes: Ebey’s Landing

A few years back we visited Fort Ebey with my parents as part of a day-long adventure on Whidbey Island.

Washington Hikes: Rattlesnake Ledge and East Peak

We tend to go hiking as a couple, mostly because we're amateurs and don't want to embarrass ourselves and hold back our friends who are extremely proficient. Lately we've been doing more hikes and getting in better shape so when our friends recently asked if we wanted to go hiking together, we finally said yes! …

Washington Hikes: Lake 22

My evenings and weekends have been subsumed by my studies, making weekend getaways more challenging this year. To combat cabin fever, we’ve been spending more time hiking, which has proven to be the perfect weekend activity—a good amount of time being active outdoors but without taking up the entire weekend so I still have time …
