Last weekend, my best photography buddies and I drove to Seabrook from Seattle, Lynnwood and Bellevue, WA to hang out and shoot together. It was a breeze to book our place; the reservations agents I had contacted were very informative and helpful. We stayed at “My Happy Place”, a charming, cozy and clean cottage with an open floor plan and decorated with cool blues, crisp whites and beach theme throughout. I loved the contactless check-in and regularly received texts to keep me abreast of the whole process during our stay.
On our first night, we decided to get some astrophotography shots on the beach. One of my friends was able to capture the magical Milky Way arching over the lofty evergreen trees along the walkway with his phone! We made our way down some steps to the beach and set up our tripods on the sand to shoot the stunning celestial display over the water. The stars were shining brightly, with some picturesque clouds adding drama to the scene. We enjoyed the fresh and cool ocean air, but thankfully no wind. My buddies and I had a blast and they helped me turn an inspiration I had for our night shoot into reality!
The following day, we explored the town and admired the various structures and rental homes in the property, strolled to the beach again to take more photos, and enjoyed a delicious dinner at Koko’s Restaurant and Tequila Bar. We spent the rest of the day at Point Grenville and got more snaps of the gorgeous Washington Coast! It was a short but fun and relaxing weekend getaway and one I will always remember!
