Short Seattle Story

by Rishi Pinnamaneni December. 17, 2016 765 views

On the days when not cloudy, the view is hard to beat. This is what I wake up to when the skies are clear. Surrounded by mountains - Seattle has Olympics to its West and Cascades to its East. A mountain lover's paradise ...

... but even on days when it is cloudy and the last thing you want is to get wet ...

 ... rain makes for a different kind of Fall. Gloomy weather is a bummer. Or so I thought, until I started stepping out of home even when its pouring ... 

... As once you leave home, you leave your grumblings behind too. 

...

A short getaway from the bustle of the city are a ton of islands - Bainbridge, Vashan, Whidbey, Fidalgo where ...

... via a short ferry ride you get transported to a different culture ...

... that apart from nature, preserve art ...

... and a treasure of the native american history

...

Back in the city, the city is home to Seafair which celebrates historical pirates landing in Seattle ... 

... and prides on its pride ...

... but unfortunately its also home to the homeless ...

... its also a dog lovers' treat. The city, in fact, converted a bunch of its children parks into dog parks as it witnessed dwindling child population and rising pet dogs population 

...

Seattle has a history of lumber, coal industries ...

... but a new industry is taking over :)) ...

... and now this is home!
