Not Camping: Suncadia Resort

14 09 2008

This weekend we headed out to the Cascade mountains for Scott’s company retreat at Suncadia Lodge. It was absolutely beautiful and a fun weekend. I spent most of the day Saturday in the spa where they have 4 saltwater pools of various temperatures. It was so relaxing and just what I needed after some really hard workouts this week.

Scott was on a team that spent the last two months learning how to make cocktails “Cocktail style.” They performed at a company wide event on Saturday night, it was so cool! Here is him practicing a “stall” where he catches the bottle on the top of his hand. His knuckles have been quite bruised and my hardwood floors are quite dinged.

Saturday morning, we headed into Roslyn (the town where Northern Exposure was filmed) for a late breakfast and to check out the cute little town. Cute it is! There is really one main street with some pubs, a couple restaurants, and some gift shops.

If you remember the opening scenes in Northern Exposure, they have a moose in front of the wall with Roslyn Cafe painted on the brick. Well, I hope I’m not as big as a moose, but….

Some of the funky decor at the cafe:

Checking out some of the other buildings. Most of these are the original buildings from the early 1900s (sounds so young when you go back to my London post, no?)

And what would a “travel in Washington” post be without some mountains and the start of a sunset? Well, nothing. So – here it is. We were in a hurry to get to dinner, so I don’t give it justice. The views and grounds were simply stunning!
