Field Trip - Carkeek Park, Seattle

The park has much more to offer, Beautiful forests, with tall, old trees, beautiful scenery of the ocean and the Olympic Mountains behind, a fun beach which is also a marine reserve. Great hiking trails, picnic spots, lots of open ground for kite flying. Honestly, it's a favourite, so when the sun was out today we couldn't get there fast enough.

The most notible landmark for kids at Carkeek Park is the Salmon slide.  Still at age 6 it is a big hit with mine. And really, who doesn't want to slide through a salmon.  Maybe you'll get a little glimpse of what it was like for Jonah in the whale.

Oh and I think the Barnacles are in bloom.  Is that a sign of spring?
