With the winter season quickly approaching, we’ve been trying to make the most of the rain-free days that we have left. Saturday was forecasted to be clear (still cloudy, but hey, we’ll take what we can get) and so we packed up and took off for Golden Gardens beach. For some reason, a lot of people were surprised to find that the beach had…sand! WOW. A beach with SAND. AND water. Seattle-ites live surrounded by water but obviously beaches aren’t a big thing here.
Anyways, we got there, and lucky for us, it turned out to be a beautiful day! If you look really really close you can see that the sky isn’t TOTALLY covered in clouds. There’s a tiny patch of clear sky.
People trickled in, and we got some sports going! There was just about anything you could want to play – frisbee, volleyball, spikeball, football, you name it.
We took a break to enjoy some delicious “Hobo-packs” for lunch! The perfect mix of veggies and sausages cooked over the fire. Yum!
Some of the bros quickly ate and got right back out there to play some football! YEAH! RAR! MEN! The beach is one of the few places you can play full-on tackle football and not worry about getting hurt (mostly). It was probably one of the more epic football games to ever grace the sands of Golden Gardens beach. I doubt that a 10-on-10 game of college students is a common occurrence, and at one point we actually had a couple spectators.
Meanwhile the rest of us…stayed back and kept right on eating! I mean, what’s a campfire without some marshmallows and S’mores??
And a beach trip just wouldn’t be complete without sand castles! Some of the sisters worked together to build this awesome castle.
Amazingly, right as we were wrapping up, it started to rain! Thankfully the good weather held out for us. :)
Of course, we ended this super fun trip with a classic cheering group photo.
Peace out. Go Dawgs. And join us next time! (…..which will probably be next year because of the rain….sigh…)
