Being from Southern California, one of the things I miss the most (beside my friends and family, of course) is the beach. People here in Seattle will claim they have beaches, but none compare in my opinion. There is one place, however, that comes close, and that is Golden Gardens. Since the weather was nice, and Parker had a special visitor in town, I decided it was the perfect time to take venture out. Of course, as expected Parker ran right toward the water… I am pretty sure he is meant to live by the beach (in Southern California), but for now we will have to make do with what we have here in Seattle.
