Hey loves! F & J here!
As some of you might know, in our hearts, we are total beach bums! There's always some Cali running through our veins!
The closest we can get to Cali up here in Seattle is Alki beach, and we've been finding ourselves here an awful lot these days. A trip to Alki is not complete without a trip to our favorite little surf shop, Coastal, and a walk on the beach.
We have yet to ever walk out of the surf shop without buying something! This is not an exaggeration! We left with plenty of Pura Vida Bracelets and F got a pair of totally adorable flip-flops for her little sister. We can't wait to see the look on her face when she gets them!
If you live in Seattle or nearby you probably know parking is a nightmare here. There have been days we've literally parked over a mile from the start of the beach, but we don't mind the walk at all because the view is amazing. At certain parts you have a crystal clear view of the Seattle skyline including, of course, the Space Needle and Seattle Center.
We also stopped by Tully's at the end of the beach for a pick-me-up drink. We used to have some Tully's nearby our houses but they've shut down so it was quite a treat. We got Italian sodas, which by the way are absolutely delicious! F got coconut (clearly feeling the summer vibe) and J got strawberry.
We ended the day going on a nice long walk at another water front, a little closer to home. We watched the sun go down and the sky was so beautiful. Nights like these make us love Seattle a little more.
F & J
