Beyond the shoreline of Seattle are islands, so many islands. Taking a ferry to explore these floating wonders is one of my favorite things to do. Vashon Island is south of the city and just a short ferry ride away. I went with my friends Amanda and Carlos to check it out a few weeks back when the blackberries were ripe for picking. If only we had brought a basket or large bag with us to collect, there were so many!
It was a short day trip visit filled with a delicious breakfast, spinning tops, colorful flowers, and more blackberries than we could imagine. I took a lot of shots of my friends as they are recently engaged, so it was a good opportunity to document a nice, sunny day together.
