Flat Stanley in Washington

We’ve been busy on the coast with some fun trips around the area showing Flat Stanley the sights so he can report back to our grandniece, Skylar, who lives in New York.

We were surprised with this bit of history in Bothell and happy that part of the Red Brick Road has been preserved.

Flat Stanley is on a flat tractor just off the red brick road. After we read this history we walked to one of the bridges over the Sammamish Slough in Bothell. The Sammamish River (Slough) connects Lake Washington in Kenmore to Lake Sammammish in Redmond. We wanted to show Flat Stanley the part of this river that Skylar kayaked on a couple years ago.

We walked to where the Sammamish Trail and the Burke Gilman Trail meet.

We continued on to the University of Washington after this stop to see the Cherry Blossoms and beyond for other iconic sights of Seattle. I’ll share my photos from the other stops after we get home to Colville.

I’m way behind in visiting but will catch up when I’m in our Country Bungalow.

  1. OK, Ellen, I had to read this a couple of times to figure out “Flat Stanley”. (I must be behind on reading posts. Or I thought maybe this is just a family nickname????) Love the shot of the river with the reflection!

  2. I too had to research ‘Flat Stanley’. Now I know! I just noticed that our school of performing arts was presenting ‘The Musical Adventures of Flat Stanley’ in our local theatre next month. Maybe I’ll have to go and learn a little more. 🙂

  3. Lovely photos, I can see spring is beginning to come forth, and like you I am so behind on visiting, hoping to soon catch up!
    I too am confused on Flat Stanley, must check this out.
    Have a blessed day.
