We arrived in Seattle late Friday evening and on Saturday morning we got up early (easy to do because of the time change!) and headed to Mark and Wi's property on Lake Cushman that they so generously offered to share with us.
We took a ferry part of the way which was very fun and offered us our first view of the Seattle skyline.
In order to get to the property on the lake, you must take a boat (or hike in for over a mile!) and it was clear as soon as we got on the water that this was a magical place. I worried that we might not ever extract our children when it was time to go!
Their property was simply gorgeous! In the two days (one night) that we were there we ate delicious meals (courtesy of Wi), hiked, swam, boated, tubed behind the boat and played around a campfire. It was perfect.
Our time there was blessed by perfect weather! The children spent the majority of their time enjoying the water in various ways.
Jumping off the boat was also pretty fun!
We hiked up the mountain to find a stream to play in.
We also saw a beautiful moonrise. Of course the picture doesn't do it justice.
The time spent at Lake Cushman was really wonderful and relaxing and so, so much fun. We are so glad that we got to share this special place with friends new and old.
