Seattle Vacation – Quad Cities Wedding Photographer – Cadenza Photo Imaging
This past summer my family and I vacationed in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. My husband’s sister and her husband live on the beautiful Bainbridge Island and they are always the best hosts!
There are SO many reasons why I love this area . . . the food, the air, riding the ferry into Seattle and so much more. Plus, this is the home of Creative Live which is where I’ve taken dozens of online photography courses!
This is the second time that we’ve vacationed here and each time we discover something else to love. If you have never made it out to the Seattle area, I’d highly recommend it. You have the great city of Seattle to explore, and the mountains and ocean all within a relatively short drive.
My stepson Liam always enjoys his time out there! Last summer was his first plane ride, first time seeing the ocean and his first big vacation! I’m pretty sure that his reaction to the ocean was my favorite parenting moment so far. We waded out in the freezing cold water and he laughed so hard that no sound could come out.
You just can’t beat moments like that!
Please enjoy this peek into our vacation with some images from last summer and this summer.
Arrival at the airport. Liam was ridiculously excited.
The amazing Mt. Rainier.
Snow in July was a huge hit . . .
Since my brother-in-law Larry has a ton of climbing experience, he was especially excited to show us one of their favorite places.
The Bainbridge ferry. I have to admit, I had no idea what to expect the first time I saw this. I had no idea it would be this big!
For a true caffeine addict like me, Seattle is basically a dream come true.
Coffee. Coffee everywhere!
Pike’s Place Market . . .
