Seattle Day 3: Spinning, Running, Boating, Hiking

Sunday Recap
The morning started off chilly, but sunny. Denise and I ended up hitting Group Ride at 8am. She had never tried the class before, so she was excited to at least try it out. I was so happy we had that as an option. I didn't have warm enough running gear for a 40-degree run. It was a great class; the instructor was high-energy.

After we got back to the house, we loaded up their dog and the boys and hit Lincoln Park. The idea was to walk the dog and take in some gorgeous views. I decided to get in a short little run while we were there. Jason tried to get some pictures of the Olympic Mountain Range. It almost looks like clouds if you aren't paying attention.
 

Post walk/run, we headed back to their house and got cleaned up. The next stop of the day was the Fremont Market. We went the last time we were in town and really enjoyed it, so we thought it'd be fun to go back before heading out on their boat.

First Terron had to make sure we saw "The Troll." Then we went into the market. I was hoping to find some handmade jewelry or something fun like that. No luck this year. But it was still fun to just mill around.
 
 

After the market, we headed to the marina so we could go boating for the rest of the day.
 
 
 
The plan was to motor over to Blake Island's Tillicum Village. They have gorgeous hiking trails. So after relaxing on the boat for a bit, we set out for the hike. It took about 90 minutes, and the views were just gorgeous. Such different nature scenery from what we're used to.

We ended up making pizzas for dinner rather than grilling as it was getting late. I'll take Pizza Sunday with friends after an incredible day like this one any time.
