An invitation to RESET! A renewing experience with the YMCA.

Many of you know that part of my life is the YMCA.  After being a trainer/instructor at the Morgan Family branch for over 20 years, last year was the first time that I got the timely information about “The Plunge.” This fun community event includes a walk, bike or run (3 different groups and start times based on your level) from the YMCA down to Owens Beach.  At the end, you’ll find music, praise, and snacks! Ready to reset with me yet?




Once all groups arrive; we gather, hold hands, and plunge THREE (yes, three) times into the Puget Sound.  One for Mind, Body, and Spirit (each YMCA/Crest Values).  I am making a point to do this again on Friday, September 7th (the early walking group leaves at 5:45 AM) as I found it exhilarating and powerful.

Please join me for this transformational reset for Fall with a re-commitment to values and new beginnings!  (There is a bus return trip back to the Y).  ALSO, if you don’t know – the Y is waiving the joining fee now through September 17th.  If you’d like ANY information, please call or text me at 253-381-6685 or PM me on our business FB page: www.facebook.com/rmrealtorwpp.

Discover Beautiful Titlow Beach in Tacoma

Located in the West Slope area of Tacoma, the lovely Titlow Beach community awaits! In 1911, the now Lodge/Chalet-style building was a grand summer hotel destination. With views of Puget Sound, Fox Island, the Narrows Bridges, and the Olympic Mountains, it is a place of stunning beauty and serene nature.

When Aaron Titlow died in 1923, the original hotel was closed and acquired by Tacoma Parks. A few decades later, it underwent a restoration process in which the top two floors were removed. Ever since 1974, the building has been a part of the community and open to the public.


Explore the Beach

Over the years, Titlow Beach has become a favorite destination for locals and visitors alike. Home to a swimming area, picnic zone, community center, spray park, walking trails, duck pond, children’s playset and sports fields, the dynamic community hub is popular with people of all ages! There’s even a signature restaurant on the beach called The Beach Tavern, a spot known for its delicious burgers and jojos. Steamers is another nearby eatery; this Tacoma establishment is known for its fabulous fish and chips and amazing waterfront views! The nearby ice cream shop offers up the perfect spot for enjoying a cone on a sunny day.

Living Near Titlow Beach

Most homes in the area were constructed between the 1950s and 70s, but in 2014, Quadrant Homes started developing a small group of quality, modern homes. Homeowner Jerry Frazier bought one of these beautiful brand new homes last year: “I love the [proximity] to the water and views! It is easy to commute to work, yet I feel like I’m on vacation when I arrive home.”


There’s still a chance for you to claim your spot on Titlow Beach! The first resale has just been listed, and it’s packed with upgrades and barely lived in. Take a moment to explore this gorgeous 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath home here.
