Ok….so adventures might be a bit of a stretch unless you are 5 but Sunnyside and Eau Claire are definitely worth a bit of exploring! Evan loved our stint as Sunnyside dwellers. All I had to do to get a walk in was mention that we could go exploring. Often he led the way to show me something he found while out walking with our nanny, Raweewan.
Here are some pictures of what you can expect to see on your walk:First stop….exploring Sunnyside. Many of our neighbors have urban gardens. Wildlife like birds, bunnies & squirrels are often visitors.
Next up….a jaunt across the bridge to Prince’s Island. Once you are in the middle, you can really feel this bridge creak and sway.
No Eau Claire visit is complete without a visit to the Prince’s Island playground. It has many options for kids of all ages.
After a rain, there are plenty of puddles to splash in or make into “potions” like my little magician.
Heading back to Sunnyside via the Peace Bridge allows for great people watching & a view of boats/rafts/paddle boards on the river.
If you look closely under the bushes along Memorial, you will see lots of interesting plants & animals…like this mushroom.
Don’t want to venture over to Prince’s Island? Head uphill to see (as Evan says) “THE ENTIRE CITY!” from the top of crescent.
What a view & what a neighborhood!
