The sun was shining and I couldn’t resist being outdoors, so I hiked to Teddy Bear Cove. I began my hike from the North Chuckanut Mountain Trailhead parking lot along Chuckanut Drive, following the Hemlock Trail until it intersected with the Interurban Trail.
Once on the Interurban Trail, within a half mile, I was crossing Chuckanut Drive and beginning my descent along the Teddy Bear Cove Trail to the beach below.
Because this wasn’t particularly a long hike, I took the time to explore every little trail up and down and around the cove before making myself comfortable on a sandstone boulder on the beach and putting my feet up on a smaller one. Eating a snack that I had brought along, I couldn’t help but think, “Oh, what a wonderful life!” as I looked out at Chuckanut Bay.
