    I live about 35 miles south of Seattle and am taking a "stay-cation" for financial reasons from Aug 28-Sept 14. I do plan to do quite a bit of canning and gardening but don't want to spend 2 weeks working around the house/yard.

    My 34th birthday falls during that time. I share my birthdate with one of my best friends and another good friend's daughter. We're considering a group party.

    I'd like to do some cheap but interesting things during my stay-cation so that I go back to work feeling like I really did have a break. What would you do with two weeks in WA? I could use some of your creativity!

  3. We love Seattle! We went to Pike's Place Market, did the Underground Tour, Space Needle, etc... Also went to Mt. St. Helens and way out to Wenatchee (sp?). Also drove out to Oak Harbor and up to Vancouver. You may not want to do as much driving, but it sure is beautiful up there! Nice where we live too (San Fran Bay Area).

    Enjoy your stay-cation! [​IMG]
