I feel like I’ve been neglecting the blog this week — instead I’m caught up in photoshoots and boys and climbing and witnessing as many sunsets as possible. In reality, this means that I’m off living my life, something of which I am fiercely proud. In the past, it was all too easy for me to stay online and ‘connected,’ but without actually connecting with anyone or anything. It’s a trap, this thing we call the internet, social media, etc. I’m over this false sense of connection and instead am being fueled by the outdoors. This week I grabbed my camera on a whim and went to a local spot called Discovery Park to take in the sunset — this is what I witnessed.
While wandering, I found a hidden away park bench where I could watch the boats come and go as the sun dipped behind the jagged line of the Olympic mountains. It was totally silent in that soothing-to-the-soul kind of way.
Eventually I made my way down to the beach for a few last minute peeks of the cotton candy sky. It took my breath away.
Whether you’re local or planning a trip to Seattle in the future, be sure to add Discovery Park to your must-visit list.
