Well, it wasn’t a whole day but it sure was fun! I got to go to the beach! And I did a lot of other stuff, so keep reading!
Annie had to work again today, but she got to do it at home.
I got to sit in her big chair and watch my favorite, Thomas the Tank Engine, on her iPad. It was a lot of fun!
Then the sun came out and it looked so nice outside. Annie asked if I was ready to go exploring.
I jumped up and said “Yes, please!”
First we walked over a long bridge that was just for people and dogs and bicycles.
I looked down and saw two trains with lots of lots of cars! I like trains a lot so Annie took a picture of me with them.
At the end of the bridge there was a big park. It had a lot of green grass and no snow. None! I asked Annie and she said it did not snow at all this year in Seattle. I can’t really imagine a winter without playing in the snow.
We started walking by the water. Wow, there was a lot of water, bigger than any lake I ever saw! It’s called Elliott Bay and if you started here on a boat, you would get all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Wow!
It’s not a very big lighthouse but I don’t care. I think it’s so cool!
Then I saw a big ship! It was loading rice to go to Japan. That ship was HUGE!
And then I saw another big thing, a totem pole! I didn’t know what it at first. There was a sign that told us that the Tlingits, a Native American tribe near Seattle made it. The sign says it’s 32 feet tall. I felt really small next to it.
I saw faces of two bears, a whale, an eagle, and a little boy.
What do you see?
We turned around and I thought we were going to go home, but we didn’t. We went to a beach! It was really little and it was way too cold to go in the water, but we did something even more fun.
We found sea glass! I didn’t even know what it was, but Annie told me.
People throw bottles in the water (which is bad because it’s pollution!) and then the bottles break into pieces and the water smoothes all the sharp edges away. Then it washes up on the beach along with the rocks and sand.
We found all kinds of shapes and colors! It was like a treasure hunt and we were really good at it.
Look at all the sea glass we found! Annie says I can bring some back to Osceola with me. I like that! I’m going to pick out my favorite pieces and we’ll put them in a little bag just for me!
We walked back over the long bridge and I saw a big building at the end of the bridge. Annie asked if I knew what it was and I shook my head no.
She said that was her house! It’s a big apartment building and more than 100 people live in it. She lives all the way at the top of the building.
We went inside the big apartment building and I helped Annie open her mailbox. She even let me open one of the letters.It was a wedding invitation from my Aunt Heather!
That was a nice way to end our big adventure for today.
