• Alive in Seattle

    This site is for new transplants, or ole Seattleites. Its filled with: Things to do, Places to go, and People to see, (in my opinion of course) in and around the Seattle area. I will try to provide actual facts and as many images as possible.

    Now, let me tell you a little something about me. I'm new to the area, which make me perfect for this site. I will capture my latest adventures in and around Seattle and share what I find with you, this way you can go out and see them too. Ok, so somethings you may have already seen, but please don't rain on my parade-because I haven't.

    Thank You,
    Your latest transplant!!!

Day Hike to Lighthouse Point – Whidbey Island, WA

Well it’s 2020 and I started my season with a go to warm up hike for me, Lighthouse Point on Whidbey Island. I’m a photographer by trade, but originally from the Midwest, so when I say I like to hike, it’s probably not as extreme as most hikers here in the PNW. My hikes usually involve a long car rides, ( with great music) an enjoyable hike, and photography along the way, then maybe a packed lunch or a stop somewhere to try a new local place along the way.

This is Lighthouse Point. It is located on the North side of the Deception Pass bridge, look for the Bowman Bay sign at the first left over the bridge. (heading north on Whidbey Island coming from the ferry) If you get to the lake that runs right next to the road on the left, you went too far. Follow the signs for Bowman Bay and you will end up in a parking lot with a large field next to hit. A discover Pass is required here, so be prepared!

This hike will give you, beaches that disappear with the tides, cliffs, an island, views of the bridge, and the sound, marsh lands, small amounts of elevation, all on an easy to navigate pathway. Did I mention that this is a loop hike? (I love loop hikes, no worries about getting lost in the woods lol)  I hope you enjoy the photos and I’m looking forward to my next adventure!

A day on the Olympic Peninsula, Christine Cox, Seattle Photographer. Hurricane Ridge, Pa Lush, Hoh Rainforest

I had a visitors come in to town, and that gave me the opportunity to spend some time on the Olympic Peninsula doing photography. Outdoor photography usually isn’t my thing, however I had a great time!! The pictures below are from The Hoh Rainforest, (one of three rainforests in WA) and also Hurricane Ridge in Port Angeles. Its always great to have visitors here in the Pacific Northwest.  I hop you enjoy the images as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Chateau St Michelle, Christine Cox, Seattle Commercial Photographer

I took a walk this afternoon on the trail next to Chateau St Michelle and decided to stop and check it out. This is something I have wanted to do for three years now, and I finally got to it. The pathetic part is that it is probably about 2 miles from my house. Chateau St Michelle is located in Woodinville,  WA and is known for their award winning wines. The French style Chateau is worth checking out on its own. I think a wine tasting is in my near future! Here is some additional information if you would like to check them out.

Port Townsend, WA

A nice afternoon exploring! This trip included a ferry ride, Cup and Muffin, a stop at the local Alpaca Farm, and a darling little town on the water called Port Townsend.
