Vashon Island

Two weekends ago I went to Vashon Island with my family. It's a small island that my family loves visiting because of the lighthouse where my grandpa used to be the lighthouse keeper, and it is also where my dad was born.

Where my dad works, they recently bought a few Black Magic cameras...if you aren't familiar with them, they are very high end video cameras. People that work there are allowed to take the cameras home for a few days and film with it, so my dad filmed a lot on this adventure. Here is a little clip of me while we wait for the ferry (watch in 1080p for best quality).



 After a lot of driving and a ferry ride, we stopped at a little island store to pick up some snacks and a few souvenirs (I got a sweatshirt and a t-shirt). 

For my snack, I tried Hubert's lemonade for the first time. I have heard people raving about it, and now I understand why! It is so delicious. I bought it in the flavor 'strawberry lemonade', which was super sweet and refreshing. And the packaging is adorable! I still haven't gotten rid of the bottle...I think I might have to do a DIY with it. :)








My dad was born in the house on the right, which is now being used as a vacation home. My family and relatives sometimes rent it and stay there for a week, which is always very fun! One year we stayed there on the fourth of July, and the view of the fireworks was spectacular!

We have been riding the ferry quite a bit lately, if you haven't already guessed that from all of my adventure posts! I think that it is very fun, and I always find new exciting things on the ferry.


Peace out! :)

P.S. I hope that you all don't mind that I have been posting almost nothing but adventure posts...I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and I hope to get more of a variety of posts up soon.
That includes my Q&A video!
