Saturday Morning at Alki Beach with Don

This morning we headed over to Alki Beach in West Seattle to meet up with our good friend Don. We’ve been to West Seattle (25 minute drive south of us) a couple times but this was our first visit to Alki Beach. Don suggested the location and it was well worth it. It offered great views of the Puget Sound, relaxing beach, and just happen to have nice weather. We sat, drank coffee, and talked with Don while the kids played in the sand and water.

Don and us go back to June 2004 where we met while in the Peace Corps. He was our neighbor during pre-service training in Dilijan, Armenia. During training we use to walk together to and from language lessons each day. It’s great that years later we ended up in the same area where we (Brett and Don) are both community planners for different federal agencies. He’s also our partner in crime in playing a mean game of “Settlers of Catan”.

  1. Good friends are hard to come by and it is nice to see you guys investing time in your friendship. Just lovely views as well. We must visit Seattle on our next West Coast trip.
