So I think I’ve probably this clear enough but Seattle is a bit different. In fact I think this is quite a bit of an understatement the more I live here and the more I/we get to experience. Take this Saturday for instance which was the birthday party of the most fab Cindy Saver (free link: www.residentialongings.com – she’s a great Realtor too) who threw a wonderful shin dig if I must say. We all bundled up, it is still January you know, and headed on into the city. Parking on the street wherever we could, it was dark but the streets were packed with people milling around and there was just an electric vibe with the light rain too. When we got inside the eclecticism didn’t stop.
We were greeted with all sorts of different people some with bow ties, some with tutus and some with plain t’s + jeans. It was an interesting sight that only seemed to extend as the night went on. People came and left. A giant rendition of Happy Birthday with orchestral base accompaniment was enjoyed by all. People also felt totally free to bring their dogs too! And just when we thought it couldn’t get any more unique the Seattle Fire Department showed up to wish Cindy happy birthday only to whisk away again for an emergency call.
All in all it was a great night highlighted by our trip to the rooftop for a little nighttime photography as attached. It’s events like these that serve to highlight the diverse culture, people and experiences you can have being part of a community like this.
