Touching the Pacific once again

Yes folks, the Ookami has finally made it to the pacific northwest. All I can say is, why didn't I come here sooner?? Such beautiful things to see each day. My apartment (which is really my friend's apartment) is quietly nestled in the hills of West Seattle. We get a clear view of the Olympic Penninsula on a clear day, and a few days ago I wandered down to a look out point that faces the downtown area...

I still think about the people on the other side of the ocean. Wish they could be here with me now to party it up, Seattle style! The job hunt has begun...but that's a different blog. I'm just here to report interesting and cool things about my new home. There are certainly a lot of people I have run into on the streets that are photo worthy. Now I just need to remember to bring the camera everywhere I go.

An interesting tidbit though...I did meet Terry Brooks, author of the Word and Void trilogy and the Sword of Shannara series. He's got a new series out now, Armaggedon's Children. Sounds cool...anyway my roommate Justin is a big fan so we had to go get books signed for him.

Mmmm. I love the west coast. Looks almost exactly like Vancouver.
