Washington has been good to me this past year, and finding Adam has really changed me for the better. I used to be quite the hermit before I met him. As Jane Austen once said, "There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort," and that's a motto I used to swear by. But my my my, how things have changed and how far I've come. While I enjoy my couch + Netflix or bed + book time just as much as the next person, Washington in the summer is just too pretty; it's kind of hard not to get outside when you can. Adam has pushed me (in only the best ways) to try all these new things he loves, and I'm so grateful. :)
That being said, from time to time, I fancy a nice rock climb. There are a few great places to do this in Washington, so on Sunday, I went with a group of friends to Exit 38 for a day of climbing.
I'm still a beginner, but I'm improving! It's fun to push yourself, especially when you have friends cheering you on or helping you reach the next step from down below. :) Sunday was probably one of our last nice summer days here in Seattle before the weather turns a bit sour, so it was great being able to get out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Summer in Washington is sooo good. It's sad saying goodbye...
If you're a climber or have ever gone rock climbing, I'd love to hear about where you've done it!
