We indulge in long days at the beach in the summer. Somehow we always stumble into friends and gatherings, on this day it was both...the recess monkeys arrived as well as friends from "Tribe Seattle."
Puget Sound is a bit chilly, perfect for a swim at the end of an epic beach day.
Lake Washington beaches have darker sand but the warmer water and floating swims docks make for luxurious long swims. We often head to the lake at the end of the long summer days. (Sunset is 9pm.)
Pictured below is Simone, Stella, Elizabeth (holding the clan together) Elias, Lola and Naomi.

We often visit the Vashon Island farmer's market on the weekend. The food is scrumptious, the music terrific but the real reason we go is to visit our friends Kelly and Rob.
Our good friends Rob and Kelly live on Vashon. We LOVE them!

Sometimes we stumble upon the chivalrous Knights in Gasworks Park. They meet in the clearing on the left when you enter the park. Simone and Naomi are transfixed by the beautiful armor. They battle and they also share medieval stories with the girls.
