Our 5th Wedding Anniversary – Seattle

September 25th, 2011 | Posted by james - the dad in Family

For our 5th Wedding Anniversary, I wanted to surprise Chanin with something different and a little adventurous.  After dropping Gavin off to spend some time with his cousins, we headed to Seattle Seaplanes for a scenic flight around Seattle.  We were both a bit nervous since this was our first flight in a small aircraft, a Cessna 206, but it turned out we had nothing to fear!

We hopped aboard the little plane and taxied out to the “runway.”   The runway always changes and is dependent on the boat traffic on the lake.

Once the Captain saw a break in the traffic he revved up the engine and we were soon airborne!

We flew the route below, but not in the same order.  Overall, we got a really nice birds eye view of the city and surrounding areas.

 

After the flight we made our way to Ray’s Boathouse for dinner and an amazing view.  Between the two of us we enjoyed salad, salmon, sablefish, a crab cake, sturgeon, nutella mouse cake, Caramel Pot de Crème (basically fancy caramel custard), a brewski, a fancy cocktail, and coffee.   Mmmmm, I’m getting hungry just thinking about it.

 

We had a great time celebrating our 5th Anniversary and are looking forward to many more!
