That is how Joel described our recent trip to Tillicum Village. In fact he asked if we could go back every Saturday. We had to explain that while this was a super-fun adventure, it was not something we could do that frequently.
To begin the trip we had to take a ferry ride to Blake Island. I was a little concerned about Evan since we forgot his motion-sickness medicine. I needn't have worried because he did great! Everyone enjoyed the ride, even though it was a little breezy. We got some good information, but I have since forgotten it. I do remember that the water we went over stays about 34 degrees year round. That explains the chilliness! We also saw some amazing views of the city and Mt. Rainier.
When we arrived at the island, we were greeted with clams streamed in broth or nectar. I was a little cautious since my only other experience with steamed clams was not very good. These were really good, though. We all ate ours. I was especially impressed with the boys who ate a lot of theirs.
We also had a little time to explore the beach and part of the island. We saw some deer, some driftwood, some rocks, and Mt. Rainier.
