Since we still had tickets to the Aquarium from the City Pass that we wanted to use, Saturday we woke up and went straight there. There is a section of the aquarium where you can touch the underwater sea creatures. Rachel’s favorite was the Sea Anemone. They feel sticky but only because they’re trying to sting you and your skin is too thick.
In Pikes Place we picked up a few more OMG Peaches for lunch, grabbed the car and headed towards the San Juans. We ate a picnic lunch and took a quick scenic drive through Washington Park. Then we were off through the Northern Cascade National Park on our way to Spokane.
While on the way through the cascades we happened upon one of the most beautiful sights we’ve seen so far. We hit Lake Diablo at the exact time the sun was falling behind the mountains and below the clouds. This caused rays of sunshine to fall on the lake in a scene like nothing We’d ever seen before.
