Being a big-time boater, the winter can leave me missing the sunshine and the water I so frequently enjoy in summer! So, I decided to rack my brain and come up with some inspiration on how to still enjoy boating this winter, and get your family excited for next summer's boating season too!
Roche Harbor is such a secluded and beautiful place in the Northwest that not many have been. If you haven’t visited, this post is to inspire you! There is so much to do from enjoying wildlife and scenery, to eating, and even relaxing at the spa. All the deets are right here for you!
A recap of the month of March - my first month back on the blog since getting pregnant and having my baby! Sharing what we have been up to (no surprise, drinking lots of coffee and trying to catch up on sleep, haha).
The boating scene is an incredible part of the lifestyle here in the greater Seattle Area. Not only are we lucky to be surrounded by the Puget Sound, but right in the middle of our city sits Lake Union which boasts beautiful waterfront views and places to dine out. Lucky for us boaters, Lake Union has some restaurant gems that feature docks for boaters to pull up to, so you can enjoy a meal or cocktail by water. On this outing we launched our Cobalt R5 in Bellevue and motored over to Lake Union for brunch at Westward Seattle.
Car seat safety in our culture seems pretty cut and dry, and the majority of people understand it. However, a recent (almost drowning) emergency at work made me realize that safety with our kids around water is not as well outlined. As a person working in the marine industry, I do feel a strong obligation to advocate for water safety for all the children out there - boating or not! This post contains good information on when kids should wear life jackets, and how to find the right one to fit them. Thank you for reading, and please do share with other parents out there!
Let me start by saying that SeaFair weekend is one of my most favorite weekends of the year here in the Northwest. There is nothing more majestic than watching the Blue Angels ZOOM over Seattle with Mount Rainier in the background. However, this almost 100 degree weather forecasted for Sea Fair weekend has me a little nervous. Here is my easy 4-step list of ways to keep you and your friends safe this Sea Fair weekend. Happy Fleet Week everyone!
One of the best events that Seattle has to offer - Opening Day of Boating Season!
