This time, however, my growing list is entirely doable. Why? My current project is on my home city of Seattle. As soon as I started to look at my city as a destination as opposed to just a string of chores and traffic, I got excited to get out there and see it through the eyes of a visitor. This summer, I'm taking the Tourist in your own Town concept to a whole new level!
Savor Seattle's chocolate indulgence walking tour
walking/nibbling tour of Pike Place Market
Seattle By Foot's Coffee Crawl
Argosy Cruises' Murder Mystery Cruise
The architecture of and views from
The Smith Tower Observation Deck
(How have I never been there before?!)
Seattle Center's Movie's at the Mural
More Seattle Architectural walking tours
...and, of course, several doses of
Shakespeare in the Park!
I'm also considering just charging up the batteries on my camera and going on photography expeditions around the area, especially Kitsap Peninsula and local farmer's markets and street fairs. There are some great shots out there that I've seen many times but never bothered to capture and share.
I realize I probably won't do all this in a single year. It's encouraging just to know there are intriguing activities out there just waiting for me, especially since we're going to have to slow the full-fledged traveling way down after this spring. In the meantime, I'm actually excited to explore my own city!
