the magic hour in seattle

September 19, 2011 |  Category:   life Seattle & the NW travels

If I ever win the lottery, I’m going to buy a house on Lecia’s street, you’ll see. Then when we’re old and retired we’ll be bi-coastal. Because I can’t ever quit New York, I’ve tried – when I was living right there in the Northwest, in fact. But I can stare at this water view forever.

    That first shot knocks me out Jenna! Well, they all do, but that first one in particular. Sadly, the temps have majorly plunged and The Rain has descended. I complained about it ALL DAY yesterday! Seeing these shots does make me feel appreciative about living in the Pac NW, but I do admit to having a very love-hate relationship with the weather here….

    Wait, is this in Magnolia looking out to Ballard? It looks familiar!

    Sigh. So gorgeous. That sunset shot just made me weak. What I wouldn’t give to be near a body of water (other than the dirty Seine!)

    since my youngest moved to brooklyn a little over a year ago, the only thing she’s really missed from home (santa barbara) is the beach and sunsets, everysooften i send a photo to her.

    Seattle has the best magic hour. LA comes in at a close second.

    Hear, hear! A toast to bicoastal aspirations, which whole-heartedly share.

    Beautiful pictures. I can smell the sea and taste the blackberries…

    beautiful photos.

    my goodness, this is beautiful. I miss seattle. even though I visited two weeks ago, it was just a one day trip and only went down to the city (to eat the chowder I was craving for 2 years). washington’s water fronts may be the most beautiful in the world.

    I just found your lovely blog. It’s funny because I was just telling my fiance as we sat in the sun in Volunteer Park yesterday that we wish we had the money to live in New York half the year and in Seattle half the year. Your line “I can’t quit New York” – I feel exactly the same. We only lived in New York for one year (2 years) ago and when we left it felt like a really painful breakup. But Seattle has so much charm too.

    Wow. This is absolutely gorgeous. We’re dying to move to Seattle.
