Taste of Island Life
Today we took a family trip to the lovely Vashon Island. We loaded up Finley and the 3 dogs and headed for the ferry at around 10:30. We started out at The Vashon Island Coffee Roasterie and had Toddy Lattes and shared a cinnamon bun. This was where Seattle's Best Coffee was made before it was bought by Starbucks.
Then we went for a lovely drive to the Point Robinson park. The dogs had plenty of space to run through the woods and on the beach.
After that we went to the farmers market and had lunch at Rock Island Pub & Pizza, which was quite possibly the worst pizza I've ever had.
It was exactly what we needed - a sunny, relaxing day with a little taste of island life. I can understand why people would want to live here. It's quiet, lovely and quaint. I'd love to go back and check out more of the farms and wild areas.
