Since the cousins were in town we knew we wanted to ride a ferry with them, so we took one over to Vashon Island one afternoon. Riding a ferry will give visitors the true feeling on living in WA. The weather was a little cloudy and cold, but we had a great time. The kiddos loved the ferry ride too. Once we got there we drove around and explored the island. We found an awesome beach with a little cool lighthouse. On the beach there were tons of sea shells that the kids all collected and there was a ton of drift wood all over the beach. There were forts all over and we even build a small one of our own.
We cruised around some more, got some food and milkshakes and then called it a night. We barely caught one of the last ferries back to Point Defiance, ha. We all had a great time.
