I just got home a couple of nights ago from a little road trip across the northwest of Washington with my grandma. We started out in Port Angeles and eventually made our way to Seattle, stopping in Sequim, Shelton, Olympia, Lacey, and Newcastle on the way. 

I think the moto for this little trip of ours should have been "you can't get lost if you don't know where you're going", because we spent many, many hours getting on and off of the interstate when we thought we'd made a mistake in our route. Nonetheless, it was an adventure. We stopped in random towns for shopping and food and a place to stay when we were tired of driving. We stayed in a $45 a night motel and ate at a tiny little diner with checkered floors and an old fashioned juke box. We adventured, and we had fun. And it was so, so good to spend some quality time with my favourite grandma.

Until next time, Seattle!
