Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s time for another weekend blog post! This weekend I went to a local attraction that I had never been to before and went thrift shopping. I’m excited to tell you all about that and more! Before we dive into my weekend I just wanted to say that I usually start my weekend posts with what I did on Friday. However,I already covered that in another post. ( You can read about it HERE) Now, with all being said let’s get into my weekend adventures.
Saturday – My big adventure on Saturday was going to visit Hakone Gardens for the first time. This attraction is pretty close to where I live but I had never visited it before. Before we went to the garden my mom and I stopped at Starbucks for some cold drinks because it was a hot day. When we got to the gardens we parked in the large parking lot. I was both happy and surprised to see that it wasn’t very busy. We went to the gift shop to buy our tickets for the garden. I also got some souvenires. After the gift shop it was time to explore the gardens. There where many beautiful things to see in Hakone Gardens. Some of my favorites are the water fall, the Koi fish in the pond, the bamboo garden and this cute little bridge. I had a fun time taking pictures and walking around the gardens. There were some spots where there was a really good view. There was some construction going on so we didn’t get to explore all of the paths around the garden but I’m very happy with what we were able to see especially the waterfall. Waterfalls are so relaxing to watch and listen to. I also liked that there was a good amount of shade in the gardens because it was a very hot and sunny day. After enjoying the garden we went to one of my favorite Goodwill locations. I did not get a huge haul on this thrift trip but I did find some fun things that I was excited to take home with me. Goodwill gets items from Target that they didn’t sale and on this thrift shopping adventure every thing I got except for one thing came from the Target section.The one item that I got that was not from Target was a craft kit. This craft kit comes with a roll of tape that has designs on it and markers to color it with. This was an interesting craft kit and I was happy to have found it at the Goodwill. The other things that I got that were from the Target section where a wooden craft kit, an ice skating Barbie doll, and some summer themed bubbles. I’m happy with my small but awesome thrift haul. After Goodwill we went to Starbucks again for more cold drinks because it was a very hot day.
Sunday – I did some errands on Sunday. I was also having bad muscle pain on my side so I didn’t have that much fun when I was out running errands. However I still went to Starbucks and I also went to Safeway and got chocolate that had prizes inside. I’m happy to say that I’m feeling much better now and I was still able to enjoy my weekend.
