16 for 2016

So, it’s the start of the new year ~ what do you want to see and do this year?  Here are 16 (for 2016!) that you might want to consider:

  1. Visit Deception Pass and the Rosario Beach/Bowman Bay area
  2. Head East from Seattle to Suncadia Resort ~ taste, relax, play
  3. Snoqualmie Falls
  4. Stay at Fort Flagler State Park
  5. Wine tasting in Walla Walla ~ make a long weekend of it as there is much to taste
  6. Explore the Kalaloch area of the Washington Coast
  7. Vancouver, British Columbia
  8. Attend at least (6) six festivals or fairs (ex: Washington State Fair, Poverty Bay Wine Festival, Bumbershoot, Fremont Fair, Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, Seattle International Film Festival, Bellevue Arts & Crafts Fair, Issaquah Salmon Days, Ellensburg Rodeo, Bremerton Blackberry Festival, Dungeness Crab & Seafood Festival, Taste Washington… just to name a few).
  9. Take a hike and see Silver Falls at Silver Falls State Park in Silverton, OR.   It’s just short of 4 hours reach.
  10. Run/Walk a 5-K
  11. Haven’t been camping in awhile? Maybe this is the year.
  12. Take more pictures (and less selfies)

Priorities

The key is not to prioritize what’s on your schedule, but to schedule  your priorities. ~ Stephen Covey

Happy New Year 2016!

What are your priorities for this new year?  If something isn’t working, change it. Ask yourself, would it be better if I did it differently?
