Spitting Harborside

At dinner Friday night the 3 Musketeer’s discussed what we should do over the weekend.  Finally, after a very chilly summer, we’ve had multiple days of  warm weather. Many homes in the Pacific Northwest do not have air conditioning, including our home. So we went over our list of things we would like to get accomplished before we move out of the area. How could we be outside and stay cool at the same time?
A few weeks back we met Cindy Lester and a group of families at Bremerton Harborside Park. She
co-wrote a book that gives ample information on places to go on the Kitsap Pennisula.
If you’re a family that resides in this area, this book is a must have.
On Saturday, we opted for a hike to Dungeness Spit in Sequim, WA. It is the the world’s longest natural sand spit. It is roughly 30 miles give or take, from downtown Poulsbo, WA. It is a 5.5 mile hike to a light house or just an opportunity to relax on the beach and soak up some sun.
We did not make our goal of hiking to the lighthouse. We decided to stake out a quite place along the hike and set up our afternoon of play.
David decided to create some art of his own.

Mayer spent time working on his fort.
And I enjoyed the breeze and scenery while working on the books.
Sunday after church we headed down to Bremerton, WA.  A 20 minute drive from our home and played in the fountains.
It was a great weekend and besides money for gas and food, the entertainment was FREE.  Normally there is a $3 family fee charge to do the Dungeness Spit hike but for some reason there was not that day.  So if you are planning a trip out that way, make sure you have $3 in cash.  It is well worth it!!!!
