During the summer, we enjoy escaping to Semiahmoo. About a half hour drive from our home brings one to a beautiful county park overlooking Blaine Bay and Mount Baker to the east and the Puget Sound to the west. There is a great walking trail or you can walk out on the beach. It is so fun to be able to head over after dinner to catch a sunset on nice warm days. This summer we also discovered the fun of low tide. We enjoyed a mid-day lunch adventure and enjoyed observing starfish, sand dollars and other sea creatures, watching amazing eagles and other birds. We were able to sneak in a few visits over the summer. Part of the time, the harbor seals were right close to the walkway and enjoyed giving us a show.
