Last week, I shared with you a glimpse into our recent weekend family get away to Seabrook, WA.
Seabrook is a relatively new beach town that was established in 2004.
While our family has visited Seabrook before four years ago, the town has grown and changed and there were lots of new things for our family to explore.
While making dinner on our first evening, our two younger kids went exploring.
They quickly got "lost" in the creativity of the old growth forest that was just steps from our front porch. The kids were anxious to show us the gnome village that they discovered.
Guests and residents of Seabrook have spent countless hours constructing this adorable gnome town with gnome libraries, playgrounds, and city centers.
There were carved mushroom stumps and small details all over the forest to notice and explore.
The stairs in the forest lead down to the beach.
And like any pacific northwest forest, there are Big Foot crossings.
You never know when you will run into him!
The kids could spend hours exploring the woods and the many gnomes hiding all around.
Seabrook was designed by Casey Roloff who put a lot of thought into the details of the community.
One of the New Urbanism features that is a big part of Seabrook is that everything in the town is a five minute walk away. If you don't feel like walking, riding your bike is a quick alternative to get where you need to go.
Seabrook has lots of open space to play, explore and spend family time together.
It doesn't matter how old you are, playgrounds are always a lot of fun.
Just across from the playground, the four legged family members have their very own off leash dog park to play in as well.
And of course, the main attraction at Seabrook, is the beach.
Kayaking, skim boarding, kite flying, campfires, and clam digging are just a few of the things you can enjoy on this beautiful coastline.
