Gotta' love the Pacific Northwest

Thursday, October 13, 2011

Today is one of those special fall day's when we really appreciate this time of year in the Pacific Northwest. The sky is deep blue, it's a nice, cool day, and all is well on Whidbey Island. There's hardly a day that goes by where I'm not thankful for living here, but days like this are really beyond description. This area of the country, often referred to as South Alaska, is one of the best kept secrets.

I spent more than 20 years in Arizona. There was not a second that passed where I wished to be someplace else; someplace green, someplace with water. I know there is a heaven, but I thank God he let me see my heaven on earth, the Pacific Northwest!! emoticon

    I live in the PNW as well... Washington ... not to far from you... and I wouldn't live ANYWHERE else... I love it here.

    Have a great day!

    I don't live too far from you and I LOVE this weather!! Foggy mornings that turn into sunny days leave me and my dogs happy... It is beautiful here, and when it gets dark and soggy and gloomy I try to remember this weather!

    Your place sounds lovely. I have to say though, I've found my place on the earth in Hiawassee Georgia. I thank God every day he let me see the view from my back veranda. It's just amazing to me. We all have our place I guess.

    Fall is so great . . . supposed to be a GREAT weekend too . . . hope you enjoy yours.

    Take care, Jan emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Are you actually in Alaska?? I've never heard anyone refer to Alaska as the Pacific Northwest?! That is why I ask. . I've always heard it as OR, WA, and B.C. but it would make sense for AK to be there too!
