These are some images our house and immediate surroundings. This is the deck in the back complete with broken washing machine. It ate it’s bearings the other day and we obtained another for free that was advertised on CraigsList but haven’t quite figured out how to get rid of this one yet.
A shot out the back showing the wonderful gloomy Seattle area weather. One of the brief moments it hasn’t been raining. If you’ve been watching the news, flooding is widespread right now, worst I can remember in recent history.
This is a view from our front porch looking over the driveway of our new neighbors to the east of us. The people that lived there when we moved in both died some time ago of lung disease. Her husband was a ship builder and exposed to asbestos.
This is looking down the hill in our backyard. When we moved in, this was a thick canopy of woods. An older woman owned all the property below and said that she was not going to develop it. She died and it got sold to developers. They bulldozed the woods below and built three houses on every lot the size of ours. The alders that were on our hillside all died shortly after that, turning what used to be very dense woods into sparse woods.
