Editor's Explorations - Fort Casey

  • Written by Kristen Hamilton

My Husband and I have been meaning to get out to another island since our “exploration” to Anacortes in June. We were thrilled when we received an invite for my sister’s birthday weekend celebration on Whidbey Island. Perfect – we’d get a chance for more exploring, check out a place we had been itching to see, and help my sister celebrate a milestone birthday to boot.

Editor's Explorations - SAM

  • Written by Kristen Hamilton

After having lived in a rural area for so long, I have now found that I love the allure of the city.  The people, the noise, the buildings, and the culture are all things I had missed for so long.  With that in mind, my daughter and I went downtown on her recent visit to the Seattle Art Museum (also known as one of the entities of SAM). 
There is something for everyone here.  In numerous light-filled galleries, there are collections from around the world including Asian, African, American, Ancient Mediterranean, Islamic, European, Oceanic, Australian Aboriginal, modern and contemporary art, and decorative arts.

Editor's Explorations - Angle Lake

  • Written by Kristen Hamilton, Editor

One of the things we love about living in the Seattle area is the fact that public transportation is an option for getting around.  Sure, it’s not always the most direct or perfect timing, but it is an option. My husband and I have used it a few times to get to the airport or to a game at Safeco Field.  On those trips, we’ve noticed the last stop on the Light Rail Link “Angle Lake” and knew we’d better add that to our exploration list.
