Exploring Seattle's Parks

25 October 2016

Leaves changing color and a slight chill in the air. These are the things I want during Autumn. I was dying for a little change from the Texas heat. This season has been unusually warm for the South and Elle and I were craving somewhere cooler. Seattle seemed like the perfect place for a girl's weekend. Good food and amazing sites, but most importantly it was a place that actually had Fall weather.  

After spending a morning at Pike's Place Market, we headed north along the waterfront. There were so many parks Elle and I wanted to explore, so we decided to try and hit them all. Give two Texas girls 60 degree weather and the possibilities are limitless! 

Olympic Sculpture Park was our first stop. We wandered amongst the sculptures, which are owned by  the Seattle Art Museum. Only 9 acres, Olympic Sculpture Park is at the foot of one of Seattle's larger parks, Myrtle Edwards Park. This waterfront park provides the most amazing views of Elliot Bay. We watched cruise ships move slowly in the shadow Mount Rainer. We even stood on the beach in hopes of seeing marine wildlife. No such luck on this day, so we regrettably moved on. 

Looking at the hill ahead of us, we Ubered our way up to Kerry Park. This tiny park space is possibly one of the most iconic spots in Seattle. The views alone were enough to make us sit and just enjoy our surroundings. Apparently we weren't the only ones either. The 1.3 acre park was packed with locals and tourists alike. It's easy to understand why. 

What do you like to do on a beautiful Fall day?
