This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Slip Away to Seattle

May, 9, 2016

Last week, I shared my experiences on a weekend getaway to the tiny town of La Conner—a no-miss for anyone interested in visiting the Emerald State. Today, I’m continuing my Washington travel theme. That way, you’ll be covered when planning your trip. This post focuses on Kirkland, a waterfront town only 20 minutes from Seattle.Kirkland AKirkland has everything a traveler could want. You can stroll down docks filled with sail boats, motor boats, and friendly Mariners.Kirkland B Kirkland C Kirkland DYou can get world class ice cream cones or macaroons, and sit on the beach enjoying them while watching the parade of boats cruising by.Kirkland E Kirkland F Kirkland G Kirkland H
You can add to the foot traffic on the art walk through the several fine galleries, find unique pieces in the home furnishing shops, and stroll the delightful Corridor Trail, with a view of the water and a feel of the country.

When it comes to dining, you can choose from an array of restaurants, but I’d suggest Watercress. The food is delicious, the cost is reasonable, and since it is yet to be discovered, you’ll have no problem finding a table. But I don’t expect that to last for long!Kirkland J
So you can see why Kirkland is a place to love.Kirkland K Kirkland L
