Tired Dog Ranch

Today my in laws stopped by for an impromptu visit and asked if I’d like to join them to check out the Tired Dog Ranch as a possible camping option this coming summer.  Just under 40 miles from my home in West Fir, this was a fun adventure!  My sister in law does a horse/dog camping event every summer and our thought is that this place might work for that.  It has a yurt, cottage, cabin, and lots of space for camping.  DSC_0166

The woman who lives here said they’ve had several weddings here as well.  DSC_0165

The colorful building here is the cottage, next to the house.  DSC_0164

This building here is the cabin and that road leads to one large grassy area with a large space for a bonfire and camping and space for horses.  DSC_0161

Vacation in Seattle

DSC_0158DSC_0156I realized this last fall that I had not taken a vacation since September 2014.  Dreaming of my cousin Riis I woke up realizing I’d best go visit that girl and her family before she’s off to professional dance school or college.  And then I designed the trip right before my 37th birthday.  Got to spend half of a day in Seattle soaking up Pikes Place and while it was cold the sun was shining.  DSC_0155

Road the largest ferries I’ve ever been on 4 times, twice in vehicles which was a blast.  I also got to watch my cousin compete in the Youth America Grand Prix.  She was awesome!   DSC_0157.JPG Unfortunately they would not let us take pictures of their performances however it was a treat to see her live.  A gorgeous ride back to their home in Poulsbo yesterday made for some great photography.DSC_0159
