Hey everybody, after reading all the other topics and gathering as much as I could without creating a new one, I need help! I am not familiar with this area, so there is only so much I can map out on google maps without getting realistic feedback!
Leaving Portland on a Friday night or very early Saturday. This will give me 4 days to complete what I would want to do. I fly out of Seattle on the 5th Day, 2:00 pm. So I can save the little stuff for that day in Seattle.
Heres something I need to figure out how to incorporate into the mix: I really want to visit a beach. I am VERY into photography, So lots of driftwood, and boulders etc. is a plus. Every beach looks great when I checked on flickr, is there one thats not too much out of the way from Portland to Vancouver? I can fit this in any day. Any beach known for sand dollars or Starfish more than another? I would love to try and find some.
Okay, here goes my chaotic itinerary. My main goal of this is to get the best pictures/scenery possible so omitting one over another is fine.
THINGS IN VANCOUVER: (2 days)
lLynn canyon park suspension bridge or capilano suspension bridge... costs 27 dollars though?
Sea to sky highway worth taking a short drive to?
Queen elizabeth park
Sun Yat Sen Park- free park
Bloedel Floral Conservatory
Anything in Victoria? Thanks for the help!!!
THINGS TO DO IN SEATTLE: (2 days)
The Chihuly Bridge of Glass
Washington Park Arboretum
Woodland Park Zoo
Photos of Fremont Troll and fremont neighborhood (interurban, troll, directional marker, lenin statue, rocket.)
kerry park for view of city
starbucks pike place market
Ye Olde Curiosity Shop
The Gum Wall
Misc. Stuff that I have questions about:
Bob's Java Jive - Giant Coffee Pot - I can hit this on the way up to Seattle
chuckanut drive ... worth the scenery?
I would love to get up closer to at least one mountain,
which would be easiest to get to? Like I said, I can omit many things.
... So everybody, what would you do?HELP! I'm from NJ, so seriously, there is NOTHING like this out by me. I want to take as much in as possible. Any spots you all know about for photographing along the way, or any advice would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks SO much in advance!
