What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | August 19

Hey, there Seattle!,

We’ve had some smog and cooler weather this week, but I am still optimistic we’ll get some more heat before summer is over.  I am going to a family camp with my church this weekend, and there will be some swimming opportunities, so I’m hoping that heat comes sooner rather than later!

If you’re looking for unique ways to enjoy the end of summer, try a ranger-led hike, or visit Bob’s SUNFLOWER garden in Everett.  I love YELLOW and I love FLOWERS! I’ve never heard of them doing this before, but this is at the top of my list!

Let us know what you are up to and share your favorite businesses, restaurants, or free activities & ideas.

Looking forward to hearing from you…
