Capitol Hill Stills

There is a wonder here.

Different from anywhere I've ever been.

The trees are bigger, permanent, filled with life,

And tend to make me wonder if there's an enchanted rabbit hole, disguised in the crook of their arm.

The houses hold character, each a story, one that involves the sea.

Some are stately and bear the mark of Americana,

While others hold more whimsy.

Our neighborhood is filled with these gems...

You just have to know where to look.

There is mystery here,...and I think I love it.

Tuesday is the Seattle Capitol Hill Night Out block parties. capitolhillseattle.com maybe a good source for local info -- is Seattle the home to a lot of geeks software engineers, .com start ups and the like? well dang i should follow m own advice. also just curious how did you find the place you will live in and temporarily staying at? just asking as a template for others how to find housing in a new city.... did you use craigs list??

a family moved in across the street from me ears ago---- The husband was on a cross country tour as a visiting professor -- his two young sons, twins, hit it off with my son- same age same video game interest and they soon were riding bikes to school together and i did my best to be a friendly neighbor -- which is not my strong suit.
