and here, where the view from this lot was breathtaking (hard to see in the shot):
and here to have a cup of tea and get out of a downpour:
None of these pictures are great photos, since taking pictures was an afterthought of four days covering almost 500 miles of driving in Seattle-Tacoma looking at rental properties. Yes, that is where I'm going to move, leaving Southern California for the Pacific Northwest.
The area is beautiful, and there are lots of writers and artists, so I expect to enjoy myself, fit in, and finally have time to get back to writing.
Any of my blog buddies or SCBWI folks up there? I'd love to meet you sometime. I expect to be settling in during November.
All my SoCal friends I will miss terribly, but I'll come back for visits. That's a promise.
