Is it because the weather can be so gray that people around Seattle paint their houses in such luminous colors?
Regardless, I enjoy it.
From Alki Beach, to Greenwood passing through Ballard and Capitol Hill.
With cobblestone lanes, historic landmarks homes, beautiful tall trees, small parks, awesome views of Puget Sound, Magnolia, the marina, and the fisher terminal…
I took a very nice walk on a sunny Winter Sunday, from Kerry Park (you know its classic view of downtown Seattle), to West Prospect street, West Highland drive, West Garfield street, Parsons Gardens, historic Wilcox Wall, Betty Bowen viewpoint, and also West Kinnear Place.
Queen Anne Neighborhood is on a hill, which means your route is full of beautiful stairways. Enjoy!
On Instagram, I often hashtag #Seattleasalocal but it is sometimes fun to play the role of a tourist in your own city.
By tourism, I mean wandering in a neighborhood with no map or agenda.
Here is what I liked around Pioneer Square last week.
