Hubby didn’t have to go to work last Thursday and Friday so we decided to head towards Washington to have a little fun. Hubby found a perfect place just about an hour from where we live in Oregon; a little piece of paradise in the middle of nowhere Washington. We booked two nights through airbnb and it was the absolute perfect summer getaway.
This wasn’t planned at all, it was pretty spontaneous as our lives usually are (even though I love and I’m great at planning.)
We had an amazing two nights/days. It was like the honeymoon that we never had. We had amazing views, perfect weather, private sauna, hot tub, bikes, wine, Mexican food, friendly dogs, gardens, lakes, fireworks, movies, world cup… We stayed at a little sanctuary on top of a hill. The owners live in the main house and we had our own suite and yard around and below them.
Later, we took the complimentary bikes for a ride
We rode the bikes to a Mexican food place in the tiny town about 4 miles away
On our way back we took more pictures
The next day…
We hung out at the nearby marina
We simply sat on the dock and enjoyed some sun. We couldn’t afford to rent anything because of deposits, but we still had a pleasant time seeing all the people get in their boats for a 4th of July celebration.
And we took a pleasant walk in a hidden garden
There was no one there, it was so peaceful.
At night we watched Roman Holiday
And during the morning we watched some football, I mean soccer
We had a meal al fresco
We saw the 4th of July fireworks from a distance from our peaceful retreat.
It was really two perfect days with my hubby, a perfect overdue, little honeymoon.
