1. going wedding cake tasting
With a 3 month engagement there were somethings we didn't get to do so I've always thought this sounded like fun. ( I wonder if it's like wine tasting but they let you keep the plate?
2. going on a midnight picnic.
This one started while we were dating. I challenged Phillip to a game of "Battleship" and he said if I beat him he would take me on a midnight picnic in a golf course (because they are the best and most beautifully maintained parks around!). Hasn't happened yet but I'm sure it will some day.
3. going camping together.
this one is more romantic to me than to him but I think a hike up to Domke Lake (the only way to get to this high altitude lake is hiking) and a couple days fishing in the warm clean deliciously clear glacial runoff lake would be fun. Oh, and the only way to get to the bottom of the 5 mile trail up to the lake is by boat so it is ultra solitary and serene ... or at least that is how I remember it. I haven't gone there since my senior year in high school.
4. spending the weekend in a yurt.
like camping but a little easier and lower maintenance
5. going "gunkholing" through the San Juans
there are tons of tiny little islands in Washington and cruising from island to island is called gunkholing. It's a great way to explore, fish and sight see.
That's just the top 5 and I know each of them are more elaborate but I find romance in the thought fullness that goes into all the planning. How about you? What's your dream date?
