Weekend Trip to Vashon Island

It takes 20 minutes from Seattle to Vashon Island by ferry. It’s a small quiet town with lots of nature and this is a perfect place if you want to relax in the weekend. The sky was gray and the wind was cold, but that is Seattle weather in winter. My husband and I took a small bag and our two dogs in our car and headed to the ferry terminal.
we enjoyed watching snowy Olympic National Park mountains, a famous light house, cute small shops and a cafe in the island.

The lodge we stayed was a simple modern interior and very cozy and comfortable place. I immediately switched on a fire place and relax in a warm living area. We enjoyed dinner from a Mexican restaurant and watched a football game. Our dogs were as usual, Cocoa explored every corner of the lodge and found his favorite place to sleep. Haru was nervous being in unfamiliar place and kept walking. We took a walk around the lodge to take some pictures. I read my favorite book and did yoga.
This is not like Disneyland but you can relax, be calm and enjoy nature.

シアトルからフェリーで20分ぐらいのところにバション島があります。小さな静かな島だけど自然と海に囲まれたとても綺麗な所です。旦那と二匹の愛犬ココとハルと一泊旅行へ行ってきました。

何が特別ではないけれど、小さな町のカフェや雑貨屋さん。赤い屋根の灯台、雪帽子をかぶったオリンピック国立公園の山々の景色。どれものんびりとした気持ちにさせるものたち。

私達が泊まったロッジはモダンなスッキリとしたインテリアに暖炉や地元アーティストのクラフトがデコレーションに置かれていました。いこごちの良い空間で本を読んだり、ヨガをしたり、フットボールを観ながら夕食を楽しんだり。

シアトルの冬はグレーで寒いけど、ちょっと場所を変えてのんびりと普通の事を楽しむのもとても良いものです。旦那と愛犬と一緒の小さな週末旅行。ここにも幸せがいっぱい詰まってます。
