This photo was taken a few years back when I was traveling to Seattle quite a bit for my job. Although it's a long, tiring plane ride from North Carolina, I really enjoyed it because Seattle is so much different from anywhere I've lived. It's a mostly nice-looking town with interesting architecture and beautiful views of Puget Sound and Mt. Ranier. And it's populated with people that apparently appreciate the same things I do – mountains, trees, good coffee, fine beer, and music. I also liked going there because the company I worked for was located on one of the islands in Puget Sound, so the trip always involved at least two rides on a ferry crossing the Sound. And that sometimes resulted in a dolphin or whale sighting.
I could totally see myself living there except for one thing. No, not the rain. I think I could deal with that. The deal-breaker for me is the cost of living. I'd be moving back into a starter home and I'm not willing to do that unless I have no other choice. But as an American city to visit, Seattle is high on my list of favorite places.
