A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Date night: kayak and dinner at Agua Verde

When I share fun things to do or places to go, I don't write about so I have something to blog about, but because I truly think they are great. Last week, the forecast looked promising, so I picked Cameron up from work and we headed out for a paddle on Lake Union. We arrived at Agua Verde within minutes and hopped in a double kayak. For a Friday evening, I was surprised at how uncrowded the waterways were.  When you are kayaking, boats can create the most unwelcome waves, so we were pleasantly surprised at the lack of boat traffic.  We spent a lovely couple of hours talking, paddling through the houseboats, watching the seaplanes take off and land and dreaming of a life filled with daily water activities. I marveled at the idea of picking Cameron up from work in a little boat or jumping off the dock into a kayak at a moment's notice. When good weather rolls around, life on a houseboat sure looks dreamy.

Best view in Seattle is always boat side.
