It's been almost three months since my visit to Seattle, and I still keep finding photos that I want to share!
On my second day in Seattle, I rode the ferry over to Bainbridge Island to visit the Bloedel Reserve. Even though it was raining, I had so much fun wandering through all of the different gardens. As you can tell by my photos, the reserve contains all sorts of beautiful ponds, bridges, and nature trails to explore. It's the perfect place to spend an afternoon away from the city!
So here's a random side story: On the bus ride back to the ferry, I ran into a lovely couple that I had met earlier in the day. They told me that they once toured the entire Washington peninsula by using public transportation as their only means of travel. With their senior discount, the total cost came out to only $6! Can you believe that!? I hope to be just like them when I'm retired!
