How many of you went to Seafair this weekend? Any hands besides my own? *crickets…* HA!
What a beautiful weekend it was to celebrate Seafair in Seattle. I absolutely LOVE Seafair and unfortunately I haven’t been able to go as often as I’d like in the past years. Prior to the weekend, I kept asking my parents if they were interested and I kept getting the same response, “Well, perhaps but let’s see how the week goes.” I can understand that. I had a long week too, but I wanted to get out in the sun and watch hydroplanes out on Lake Washington along with the amazing Blue Angels.
Hello, Blue Angels. They are amazing.
Seafair takes place along the Lake Washington Shore in Seattle. Thousands of fans/spectators gather along the shore to watch the hydroplanes race along with the airshows. It definitely brought back memories. Plus, we met up with alot of my step-dad’s friends who had prime spots to sit and watch.
Of course, we had to venture down into the pits.
If you haven’t experienced Seafair….then you haven’t experienced life! :)
I only say this, because it is to darn fun and I’ve grown up going. I hope to continue to make it a tradition. Watching the Blue Angels is completely worth it. Especially when it comes to fighting for a parking spot. Here’s a hint, FREE admission on Friday. More money in your pocket for beer, food and pit pass! SCORE!!!!
I loved Seafair 2014. I wish I could have been on a boat this year, but oh well. I got my fix in and I am not complaining. :D
The rest of the weekend involved the following: Driving to Sequim, going to Golden Gardens and grabbing a beer at
Maritime brewery. I highly recommend the spicy sweet corn & jalapeno chowder.
On a hot day, the chowder may not have been the best idea, but I loved it.
Have you been to Seafair?
