Travel Destinations and Memories !!!

Sometimes all you need is a day trip, a mini-vacation, not far away. There are always things that you can discover that are only within a couple of hours or less from where you are... :car:

Historic lighthouse in Mukilteo, Washington



Lighthouse keepers quarters
Hey, I recognize that place! DH's mother grew up in Mukilteo, and ... her uncle was the lighthouse keeper. He retired before DH was born, so he has no memories of the interior. When we visit DH's aunt in Edmonds we always make a pilgramige to Mukilteo to ride the ferry and see the lighthouse.

We got a snack at one of the eateries at the Ferry stop or whatever they're called. There's another lighthouse in West Seattle I want to see next time I'm there. It's located at Alki Point.

We always eat at a place a block or two uphill from the ferry landing ... I think it's called Arnie's. It has great views.
 
I visited Independence Hall in Philadelphia this weekend, my very first visit. The place where the Founding Founders debated and enacted the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. Very inspiring...
