This was one of the easiest faux getaways I've ever taken. A mere twenty minutes from our house is Alki Beach. Alki is a Seattle summer park destination with 2.5 miles of sand that extends from Alki Point to the Duwamish River. The day was so relaxing. Nick and I munched a huge goat cheese salad and some crusty Ezekiel Bread on a grassy hill beside the beach. There was a nice breeze coming off the ocean which seemed to disappear once we finally laid by the ocean. I love lazy days like these.
So even when we can't escape our lives in the city. We can always pretend.
