Magnuson Park

Magnuson Park

One of the awesome things about our new apartment is that we live right next to Seattle’s second largest park, Magnuson Park. It is located on a former Navy airfield and there are still old military buildings throughout the park. Seattleites even play tennis in the old hangar.

Nick and I visited Magnuson Park for the first time yesterday. We spent an hour walking nearly 3 miles to, from, and around the park. The weather was fantastic (sunny and temperatures in the mid-70’s), so it was a nice day to visit the park.┬áSpeaking of the weather, the last couple weeks have been amazing and the 7-day forecast shows more sunny, warm days ahead. I love Seattle summers!

There were lots of people at Magnuson Park – out on their boats, swimming, playing frisbee, sunbathing, barbequeing, walking, biking, playing baseball,… We even saw a group of people playing cricket!

This last weekend was Seafair weekend, too, so there were lots of events going on in Seattle, including Blue Angels performances. Although Nick and I didn’t get to the park in time to see them, we certainly heard them practicing this last week!

Lemon Garlic Fish

I’m glad that Nick and I (finally) visited Magnuson Park and I’m sure we will continue to go for many walks there in the future. ­čÖé

For dinner, Nick and I decided to┬átry something new. I found a recipe online for Quick Lemon Garlic Fish┬áthat looked yummy and pretty easy to make. We used the recipe for the marinade (parsley, lemon, garlic, olive oil, salt, and pepper), but we baked the tilapia in the oven rather than grilling it. We had steamed broccoli and corn on the cob for side dishes. Everything was delicious, especially considering that it was Nick’s first time cooking fish! For dessert, we had fresh strawberries. Yum!
