About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
3 Kids 5-13 years old boys and girls

When we travel, good food and adventure always abound. Our family loves to push the limit of what we can do with children. Our mantra has always been - have kids, will travel. However, this doesn't mean I'm unlike most frantic moms before a trip. Wanting adventure and being a control freak can sometimes be a lethal combination.
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, curious, independent, spontaneous
We Just Got Back From
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Hawaii, Montana, Lake Tahoe
A Place We'd Love To Visit
New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Italy
Favorite Vacation Memory
Climbing Machu Picchu with a 4 month old infant in a slight and having all the locals stop us to ask what happened to his feet which were all bundled up. They just couldn't believe it wouldn't be bow legged.
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Getting to the airport on our way to Scotland with my 15 month old and discovering that my husband's passport had expired. Instead of rebooking all of our flights, we decided that I would do the first leg of our journey on my own with baby. Unfortunately, we had not packed for me to be flying by myself. I could bearly walk to the runway with all my bags and a 15 month old who would get distracted by everything along the way. He then proceeded to sleep only 1 hour of the entire 11 hour journey (red-eye). It was pretty miserable.

Kid-friendly Tide Pools in Washington State

Kids of all ages and adults alive find great fascination in discovering ocean critters in tide pools.  It's a fun and free activity that can easily fill a couple of hours.  All the way up and down the Washington Coast, there are countless tide pools, but these are some of the most accessible or more healthy tide pools you'll find.

At the Salt Creek County park and Campground, there are lots of rocky tidal pools. You'll also find a nice playground and play fields as well as hiking trails nearby.

The Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary has miles of coastline littered with tide pools that are wonderful for kids to explore. But a great place to start is at hte Olumpic Coast Divery Center located at Port Angeles Waterfront.


Mora Road
Forks, Washington

The Second Beach Trail takes you out to a sandy beach (0.8 miles) with tidepools and stunning views of sea stacks.


Whidbey Island
Oak Harbor, Washington

Great tide pools at Double Bluff Beach. Miles of broad and sandy beach and some unusual bluff erosion. You might even catch a glimpse of an gray whale. The beach near Fort Casey on the west side of Whidbey Island also reveals tide pools in very low tides. kelp provides a buffer for what is essentially an aquatic nursery for all varieties of baby fish, mollusks and arthropods.


408 Lebo Blvd.

During minus tide, there are wonderful tide pools that are easy for kids to explore. Unfortunately, Lions Park is closed until early 2011 for redevelopment.

At the south end of Alki Beach, during a minus tide, you'll find easily accessible tide pools full of life.

These pristine beaches offer some of Washington's most stunning coastal landscape. It is also home to some healthy tide pools filled with colorful star fish and sea anemones.
