Re: PICTURE POST II!

The lake my mother lives on, I took this while I was visiting at Chrismtas -- it's the view from her driveway. I grew up in Seattle, but she moved to this little lake community about an hour from the city last February. Being that it is Northwest Washington, and this was only my third visit to the house (once when I helped her find and purchase it, once for a week last summer, and then this past Christmas) I didn't know that the mountains were visible because they were never out. That is just the foothills, if you drive around the lake there's a nice view of the Cascades too:


When it is snowy:




Her little cabin in the woods, decorated for Christmas and being buried in snow:


There are things like chickens in the road there. It's a culture shock for me, a born and bred city girl, but it's absolutely lovely, and she's really happy there!

The line about the chickens sounds like something a battle hardened soldier would say.

"Lieutenant, you wouldn't believe it...there are things...like chickens...in the road there! We're lucky to be alive!"

Wow very nice digs for your Mom, TSQ. The Pacific Northwest has some absolutely fantastic places to hang you hat as far as scenery.

Lovin' the shots, tsq. I don't know if I could put up with the constant rain in the Pacific Northwest but the scenery is almost unmatched in America except for probably Alaska.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

It is gorgeous, and Seattle's not really as rainy as people think. It usually drizzles a bit in the morning and clears up in the afternoons, and summer is generally dry and sunny.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

I'm going to be visiting Seattle in a few months. I'm open to suggestions as to what else I should see other than the space needle and you-know-what.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My wife, sister-in-law and mother-in-law took my wife's aunt to see the sights and sounds of San Francisco yesterday, as she lives in Vietnam and had never been to the US.





Her aunt viewed a lot of things from the car, or would only spend 5-10 minutes outside at each stop due to not being used to the cold.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

Those are awesome pictures, Flux.

Well, my vegetarianism is in full swing, and this is what I had for dinner:


It may not look like much, but it was delicious. Tomatoes sauteed in extra virgin olive oil, sprinkled with fresh parmesan cheese, celery salt, oregano, and a dash of pepper, sitting on a bed of green lettuce drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

The tomatoes were good, though they got softer than I wanted. Next time I'll just have to cut them a might bit thicker.

Great. Now I have a craving for a big salad.

You scoundrel!
