- Travel Update: West Seattle -
Long time, no see! I'm here to share some bits from my time in West Seattle. Yes, it was very different than downtown Seattle. And, very different from the east coast. Warning: an incredible amount of photos ahead. I wish I was sorry.
I began my trip at a quaint Airbnb with the most charming location. I rolled in at two in the morning and awoke the next day to a view of the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountain Range off in the distance. Insane.
West Seattle is both incredibly residential and incredibly hilly. It's a decently long walk to make it to any businesses or shops. This gave me ample time to check out the houses peeking out of the greenery. Most of the houses looked like the set of The Brady Bunch.
The baristas at Cafe Osita suggested a walk in Lincoln Park to fill the afternoon. Little did I know I would wind up spending all day exploring just one sight. The giant pine trees met the stoney beach of the Puget Sound and I was in absolute heaven.
Intense photo overload with all of the trails and pines and steps and waterfront shots. I could not stop taking pictures. I wound up running along the beach then people (and dog) watching for a few hours.
Dinner was pub food at The Bridge and breakfast the next morning was at Luna Park Cafe. From there I took an Uber to stay downtown for the remainder of the week. I met a retired yacht captain on my self-imposed tour of Lincoln Park the day before. "You're going to hate downtown," he said. He was maybe a little right. Stay tuned for the next batch of Seattle photos!
