I recently took a trip to my former home, Port Townsend, to show friends a few listings. It was a beautiful day and I was able to approach by ferry. I still love that Port Townsend was one of the original settlements, dating back to it’s founding in 1851. The city maintains it’s heritage and is a National Historic Landmark District.
Returning via Seattle, I was able to see the full moon rise over the city, with many of the buildings being lit-up in Seahawks colors. It was a site to behold.
As the days get shorter and darker in the Northwest, I give thanks and am grateful to live in such a beautiful area and to have such great friends. I’m a bit uplifted by various headlines of late, and despite the new shutdown am happy for the few outdoor venues where we can gather safely while wearing our masks.
This is one of my favorite times of the year to go birding as we have some of the most interesting migratory birds inhabiting the Skagit Valley. Snow geese, tundra swans, short eared owls and more!
I was also grateful to finally get my hair cut last week! Small pleasures.
This season I am helping three groups with year-end fundraising, specifically with #GivingTuesday: Washington Water Trails, the Northwest Dance Network, and the Ballard Elks. WWTA has retained me as part-time executive director, and NW Dance elected me into the vice-president position. The Ballard Elks, of which I am a member, has been hit hard due to their main tenant moving out.
Moving on to real estate, I can’t say enough about the low inventory and the seller’s market. Properly priced listing in the Seattle core are just flying off the market and are highly competitive among buyers.
