I’ve had regular people weekends off all summer, but I’ve now reached the part of my schedule where work overlaps the Saturday/Sunday weekends that Jess has off. Boo. We debated what to do with my last Sunday off. Tackle a project around the house? Do something really fun? We opted for the latter, and took a quickie road trip for the day.
Satsop Nuclear Power Plant, Satsop.
Don’t worry, moms, it was abandoned before it was ever used.
Kurt Cobain Riverfront Park, Aberdeen
I remarked on how the neighbors must hate having the park there, but turns out one of them made it happen.
Zelasko Park, Aberdeen
Chainsaw carvings and one of them a lumberjack? This combines some of my favorite Pacific-Northwesty things. We had to stop. The carvings have plaques that say “Louis Benanto Jr. 1971.” I couldn’t find a lot of information about them or the park online.
Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park
I cannot say enough good things about this gorgeous beach.
Hoh Rainforest, Olympic National Park
Where we saw lots of moss, elk, slugs, and billions of mosquitos.
What a spectacular day. Staycation for the win.
