One of my favorite spots to walk the dogs is through “5 mile Drive” We always begin our hike in the rose gardens. Just walking under them makes me feel so full of life!
Once in the garden I take my time reading name plaques of the roses and each year I find my “Favorite” species and order it for my own garden. This is a winner for this year & I can’t wait to plant it at home!
After I’ve had my fill of these beauties, I usually let Josie and Annie (my 2 fur kids) cool off through a shaded walk through the woods, along the cliffs and down to the water
We head out a little too late in the morning and missed seeing a family of 7 Orca! We hope to have better timing next time.
The “Narrows Bridge” in the distance suspends From Tacoma to Gig Harbor. The old bridge, that fell in 1940, remains beneath the waters. Today, its skelaton sits below in the base of the water and is home to the world’s largest octopus population that could grow to 600lbs! I found it very interesting to hear that there was an Octopus Wrestling Festival in our town until the 1960’s! lol I am thinking of getting an octopus throw pillow for the sofa, but I am having to convince the hubby that it’s cute. haha It’s cute… right?
