Our Honeymoon

For our honeymoon, we went to Long Beach, Washington.  We were gone June 15-21.  Long Beach is actually right on the Oregon/Washington border, so we spent some time in both states.  It was a beautiful place. Mom gave us a weeks stay in a timeshare condo for a wedding gift here.  The condo was very nice and was right on the beach!

We saw quite a few places while we were there. We drove up and down the coast, visiting a few lighthouses. Some of the hikes to the lighthouses were pretty steep. It was nice weather thought and enjoyable.  We also traveled to Mount Saint Helens, but we got there too late to really see anything like the visitor's center or whatnot. We just looked from the car.

Toward the tail end of our stay, we went to Seattle. We wanted to go to the Space Needle for lunch, but it was super crowded and apparently reservations had to be made weeks in advance. Who knew?! We spent time on the pier, walking around the Space Needle and visiting the Chihuly glass exhibit that was there.  A little pricey to look at a bunch of glass, but that's okay to do something like that once in awhile.  

We made it back in one piece, and we didn't even kick one another out of the car! Hey! It was a memorable trip and honeymoon.
