Seattle Day 1 | June 14 2017

The Seattle Japanese Garden

The Japanese Garden is an extremely beautiful and peaceful place. I feel like it’s a little overlooked. It’s not in the City Centre, and it’s definitely not an extremely touristy place (part of the appeal!)

In it’s late spring/early summer stages, everything is incredibly green and many of the trees and bushes are still blooming beautifully. I can’t imagine how gorgeous it would be in the autumn,  with all those trees on fire!

I would highly recommend checking this place out, should you ever find yourself in Seattle. You can do a guided tour, or just grab a brochure and go. On some days you can even see a tea ceremony.

Alki Beach

Alki Beach is across the bridge in West Seattle, which in itself is a really charming place. It’s a rocky beach that looks out  on Elliot Bay. It’s a great little place to people watch, and watch the ferries go back and forth.

I am told that in the colder months, you can even see seals and sea lions. Plus, there’s a lot of really cute restaurants running along the street behind the beach. It’s also a great place to collect shells and cool rocks!
