Seattle, WA, 9/7-9/11 by Mitchell Lettow | Sep 17, 2018 | trip Exploring Uncle Steve and Aunt Lee's urban homestead It is such an amazing spot! Lee sharing the fruits of her labor; Toby wishing we would share more with him Everbearing raspberries were amazing! Emily would have ate all the raspberries and passed out in the patch if we let her. "We're married now, I think this is how you're supposed to eat grapes." Sizing up some of Aunt Lee's mighty fine cookin'! Lee's famous "gato gato" Some friendly wits and wagers were played, with only a little bragging Maya was our host dog! (Thank you Sam and Marta for really hosting us!) We took the ferry on cousin Sam's birthday to the Kitsap Peninsula. The Puget Sound Hiking through the sword ferns and big coastal trees to get to the beach. Low tide on the beach Lots of little treasures around Plenty of snacking Then we drove to Hamma Hamma to get some fresh oysters! Setting wasn't too shabby ;) Preparing for the sensory experience that is eating oysters Awkward family photos Some raw and some roasted oysters Sam reassuring Emily that this is a good idea She actually went for it! She at two, but I can't see her eating them again. Mitch and the rest loved them though! Hiking Discovery park with Uncle Steve. Discovery Park is over 500 acres on the Puget Sound, and is right in Seattle's city limits. Great views of the Sound! "Lime bike" is Seattle's bikeshare program and can be seen all over the city. You can rent one to get to your location and leave it wherever you want!
