Seattle & Lummi Island, WA – 5/28/17 – Westward and Willows Inn

An absolutely perfect spot for a sunny Seattle day.  I loved Westward on my last trip to Seattle and so happy to get back here.

Willows Inn
It is certainly a trek to get to Willows Inn which kept me from going for quite a while but I am so glad that I finally made the effort (with a gentle push from some friends). If you stay at the inn, dinner feels like the best dinner party you have probably been to. It started with the first snacks on the patio, moved to the dining room and ended with a perfect sunset at dessert. While 2017 is not over yet, this will easily be one of my most memorable experiences of the year.
