I love living in
I get to say Gig Harbor
because that's our address
We are not actually in the
we are around the corner in
just over the
~Purdy spit bridge~
I love coming home and crossing that bridge...
seeing the tide way out..
or sometimes the waves are wildly whipping in the wind
or some days it is so calm it is like a lake...
We've only been here 4 years
and I have really grown to
our good friends from Seattle
just hopped in their boat and came down for the
we got to go touring around the area with them
Just a last minute
"are you going to be around today?"
YES WE ARE COME ON DOWN!!!
I love the homes on the water but don't
get the chance to take pictures of them often
I grabbed my camera and here is what you find
on the water in the NW
these are in the Harbor
I'm not crazy about modern
especially in the Harbor
Now this one I love
I would love this home in
This is at the end of the Harbor
we are so glad they made the move here
On the far right is the famous
Anthony's Seafood Restaurant
after having dinner there our friends
climb those stairs home
can you see the stairs?
The gray house on the left with the white trim & blue awning
is another set of friends
this is the area where they take the pictures of the Harbor for
magazines...like the one I used at the top
they have the million dollar view from their place
Leaving the Harbor
we troll past the famous
These homes are right at the mouth of the harbor
They have to park up above..
hmmm not sure I would like that
look at these cute little cabins...
all have to be walked down to
There were so many beautiful homes above the water
I could be out there all day!
Ok this one I would have to say is a
I am in love, no
with their home
inside and out done to
both the new one and the
belong to them
The yellow one is for sale...
we are trying to get our
interested so they will be closer...
just look at their new view
can you see
Mt Rainer above Tacoma?
I think they're bonding...
Did you notice the name of my Dad's boat
he loves me...
They are going to tie up to our
Seattle Besties boat
notice they fly the Swedish and Finnish
we had a bit of wind but it was a nice warm day
I somehow missed a getting a picture of their marvelous boat
that we spent the day on
the whole family came
Dad BBQ'd hamburgers
we enjoyed the harbor
and the company
and it was
a fantastic evening
Thanks to our good friends
who just called to say
"are you going be around today?"
I hope she can someday leave her darling
cottage on Lake Washington and come
south to be closer
we have so much fun together!
