Seattle, oh Seattle. I really am liking you. While on the ferry ride during this visit, I had a feeling wash over me, “this is right where I am supposed to be”. It’s weird, because I never really imagined myself living somewhere like the Pacific Northwest. But now that I am here, it feels right. Being able to catch a train in to Seattle for the day, explore and catch it to come home is simple and much cheaper then gas and parking for the day.
Here are a few other things that I am loving about Seattle…
People, there is green everywhere. Not just where your sprinkler happens to hit, but everywhere. The lush of the vegetation is as blue as the high desert sky. Flowers? The PNW has your flowers, even some you didn’t even know you loved until you spotted them.
I like the neon, old and new throughout the city. Its not all over the place like it is in downtown Reno, so when I do spot it, the tube letters and numbers catch my attention much more than they did back in Nevada. These may get printed and framed for the house.
The other great part about being here? I have gotten to meet more flickr friends in the past month than I did in a year. It is so fun to walk around with other photographers and play tourist. A big thank you to Staci and Andy for including Cara and me in their epic anniversary tour. Here’s the gang, it feels a little “Westside Story” if you ask me… good thing I am in their gang (The Hassie/Andy Gang).
Yup, I like it here. Cara is also sharing her photos of our day on her blog. Swing over and check out her view finder found.
