We ran into some pretty bad traffic, which was annoying, but once we got to Alki we found an amazing parking spot, loaded up our stuff and staked out a spot on Alki Beach. Alki (way on the South end of Seattle) is famous for it's actual sand and it's view of the Seattle skyline. It's also the only beach in the area where you're allowed a fire. Because of these factors, it's also extremely crowded and very touristy. There are a ton of little shops and restaurants around.
Overall, Alki was a pretty fun trip and I'd be happy to do it again, especially if we had a bit longer and got there earlier. That said, Discovery Park is still my favorite beach in Seattle.

The best thing about going to Canada is the beautiful ferry ride over - or at least Walt sure seemed to think so! I'm telling you guys, this is the way to travel.
Where Walt proceeded to pick out every possible electronic device and spent all of his time staring at screens. :)
And the BC Parliament Building, which is seriously cool.
And the Fisgard Lighthouse. (Wow!)

The last stop we made with Grandpa Burgener was the iconic Kerry Park in Queen Anne. I've always wanted to go here and it seriously lived up to the hype. You park along a quiet neighborhood street, round a corner, and this fantastic view just sort of smacks you in the face:
The park is small and there's not a lot to it, but it's worth the drive up the hill just for the photo op.
|We were also super lucky, because there happened to be a professional photographer hanging out up there wanting to practice lighting, and we were the lucky subjects. :)|
