I had an opportunity to spend some time in the presidential suite at the Westin Seattle a couple weeks back. They’ve got a great view of the cityscape and I managed to get some pretty great timelapse videos of the skyline. Check it out!
Ended up heading down to the Seattle Japanese Garden to catch some clouds and see some trees! Like most places its cards only, and they’re not selling fish food for the fishes right now, but the koi will still come right up to wherever you’re standing to try to get a handout. Only felt a little bad not tipping the fishes for their performance.
The lilypads are right on the verge of blooming, saw one bright pink flower opened up, with the rest a day or three away. Most of the trees are still pretty green though some of the Japanese maples are starting to darken and get ready to shed their leaves for the fall. Cripes its going to be October soon, time flies eh?
After the stroll through the garden we ended up at this cute burger place called Burbs Burgers over on Montlake. Its a food truck with a large astroturfed seating area with some covered benches and umbrellaed tables. Those umbrellas came in handy since we got there just as the rains began. Super tasty smash burgers and the frys were fried to perfection! They’ve got a housemade meatless patty if veganism is your jam. Its a super swell place and I can’t wait to go back and try out the rest of their menu!
We ended up taking a mildly impromptu trip down to Mexico at the end of September. Originally the plan was to drive down the Baja peninsula to Cabo but that plan fell through and we ended up flying instead. The Cabo beaches weren’t nearly as fun as I’d imagined, but La Paz just blew me away. Anywho check out some travel photos after the jump!
Took a couple days to drive out to the Oregon coast for my birthday. Mostly just some driving up and down the coast enjoying the sights, as well as some walking up and down the beach. Always crazy how fast the weeks go by, Its already March!
Some recent photos from a day dive over to the Washington coast. Good way to get out of the house, get some sun, and listen to some podcasts.
