We spent our last day in Seattle playing and visiting with friends who live in Seattle. Seattle Center has a lot to offer. We visited the Seattle Children’s Museum, International Fountain and the new climbing structure/playground.
We are in Seattle! We arrived mid-afternoon and walked down to Pike Place Market. Though we got to bed at a decent hour, we were abruptly woken by someone who burned their popcorn.
Today was fun, but very testing of our parenting abilities. Not sure if our kids are over-stimulated or their daily schedule has been disrupted too many times, but they have been kind of crazy today. The Portland Children’s Museum was fantastic. Tomorrow we leave Portland and head to Seattle.
After leaving Salem, OR we spent the first part of the day at Enchanted Forest in Turner, OR. Enchanted Forest was amazing and our kids loved it. Silver Falls would have been amazing if we had the energy to go for a hike. We ended our day in Portland, OR at our hotel swimming and getting to bed at a decent hour.
We drove a lot today. We left Klamath, CA and drove for 1.5 hours to Prehistoric Gardens in Port Orford, Oregon. Basically across the street we discovered Arizona Beach, which is a beautiful and clean beach with almost nobody there. We had the beach to ourselves. After leaving the beach came the 4.5 hour drive to Salem, Oregon.
We spent most of today driving. A 4.5 hour drive took about 6.5 hours due to potty breaks and stopping to stretch our legs. We started our day leaving Fort Bragg, CA. Our stops along the way were in Eureka, CA and at Confusion Hill. We hiked around Fern Canyon and then got to our hotel in Klamath, CA in time for a quick swim and some dinner before bed.
