Our family has been coming to Seabrook since 2005. I’m pretty certain the first home we stayed in was the Sea Star Cottage. We have brought our family, friends, clients and many other guests. Seabrook started as a sweet ocean getaway within 2.5 hours of Seattle. A place we came to let our hair down, set aside work and tools and just enjoy being a family together. Our time was filled with walks through the gnome trail, mushroom spotting in the back forest, camp fires on the beach, and lots of soccer in Crescent park. As the town grew so did our adventures. In 2007 with friends sharing our stay at Central Park, Tom and I decided to toss the birth control pills and see if we could have a baby. One month later, I was pregnant. Our son has now enjoyed years at Seabrook as well, filling our trips with even more joy than we ever imagined. In 2012 we brought 18 friends with and celebrated Tom’s 50th birthday in The Washington House. Nothing better than being surrounded by those you love at the ocean, at Seabrook. In 2014 we introduced another little boy to Seabrook. He came to us for the summer through a non-profit called Safe Families Olive Crest. He needed a place to stay and we became his host family. He had never been to the ocean. He has since gone back to his mom, but comes to Seabrook with us every time we come back. In 2016, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. The time came when I needed to shave my head as the hair was falling out. I couldn’t think of a better place to do it, than Seabrook. Grandma Dorothy’s Cottage was booked and our best friends joined us (along with the little boy I just mentioned). We danced, we sang, we cried, we shaved my head. I am beyond thankful to have had such a special place for these life changing, life giving events.
*can’t seem to get photos to upload. Can email separately. Have a few photos of some of the above times at Seabrook. Last visit was with Women’s Retreat from Westside Church. Don’t recall which home we were in. 🙂
