theladysnarkydame: Moon and Chime from The Books of the Raksura! (What?)
I still haven't really had time to sit down and load some pictures (or to take a whole lot, actually) but I did get a few!

Most of the differences I've felt come from, I think, the flora - there are various kinds of evergreens EVERYWHERE. And moss. Lots and lots of moss. I love it -- everything looks so green. Also, I've only seen a handful of pigeons, and a couple of chickadees. Mostly, there are crows, and three or four different kinds of seagulls. (Chad is not fond of birds -- they kind of freak him out -- but I LOVE them. And I really like the sound sea gulls make.) ALSO I can see mountains! Not from my apartment, and not on cloudy days, of which there are many. But they're there! It's all still very novel and amazing. :D

The other day (last week? sometime a bit ago) we went to Mukilteo for some fish and chips. It's gorgeous! And nearby! I want to go back all the time. :D Basically, that's where the ferry to Whidbey Island is. Very coastal, very . . . fishing town-esque. This day, it was super foggy, and the ferries (coming and going) were blowing their horns at each other. I love the sound of fog horns.

There were a bunch of crows and seagulls and gannets? Maybe gannets. Some sort of black, long necked water birds . . .

Also, the fish was SO GOOD. SO good.
photo dump ) Anyway, photo dump over for now.  At some point I'll load up some that are filtered and cleaned up a bit, because this place is really very lovely, and deserves to be shown off a bit.  But for now, these unedited (dirty lensed) shots are what I've got!

ALSO, FOR ANYONE WHO MAY BE IN THE AREA IN THE NEAR FUTURE:

I'm mostly off work on Fridays and Saturdays -- and I think i could get at least some time off during the rest of the week with some advanced notice.  So if you want to meet up any day that's not a Friday/Saturday let me know as soon as you can!  :D
