Hot Date – Seaplanes and Kayaks
It’s a busy month round here – both the Husband and I have birthdays and it’s also our wedding anniversary - so we decided to both take the day off work and go on ‘hot date’ instead.
Can anyone tell me why we haven’t done this before? It felt so deliciously naughty and decadent and we didn’t even need a babysitter, just friends who were kind enough to pick the Minx up from school.
Despite the fact that we live close to Seattle’s Lake Union and are constantly buzzed by the seaplanes flying overhead, the Husband had never been on one (I did here, but it’s not quite the same in February), so we decided to book a flight out to Roche Harbor on San Juan Island.
I do keep forgetting what a ridiculously beautiful corner of the world I accidentally ended up in.

Bye bye Seattle and Mt Rainier
Past Mt Baker
Kayaking – we saw seals! (but I wasn’t quick enough with my camera to photograph them)
Autumn is on its way
Into the sunset
Back towards Rainier
Buzzing the Space Needle
It’s expensive, but on a beautiful day I can’t recommend this highly enough to anyone living in the Pacific Northwest. It truly was one of the most awesome things I’ve ever done in my life.
