5 Ways to Enjoy the Sunshine

Sunny Bellingham

Bellingham Sunshine

The sun is out in Bellingham!  It’s been a slow start to summer, so every time the sun shines you’ve got to get out and enjoy it.  I’m using examples specific to Bellingham, but the general concepts apply to just about everywhere.  What’s your favorite thing to do when the weather is nice?

Here’s some of mine:

1. Check out a new park.  My favorite is Boulevard Park, but sometimes it’s nice to go somewhere new.  Have you been to the Big Rock Garden?

2. Find an outdoor happy hour.  I know Anthony’s Hearthfire, Boundary Bay Brewery, The Copper Hog, and The Harborside Bistro at The Hotel Bellwether all have sunny patios.  Nothing like a cocktail in the sun to lift your spirits!

3. Take a bike ride. Cruise down the interurban trail, or just down the street.  I find Bellingham to be so enjoyable by bike!

4. Garden.  The plants (and weeds) love the sun as much as we do, if not more.  Get your hands dirty.

5. Read a book.  Get a chair, put it outside in a sunny spot, and grab a good book.  It may not be for everyone, but I love it!  Bonus points if you’ve got a view.
