    I went to the Olympic Peninsula on a 1-week vacation, 7 years ago.

    It was awe inspiring.

    Hoh's Rain Forest:


    Rialto Beach:


    and



    Dungeness Bay: <yummy!>


    Washington is truly a beautiful state!

    London, however, is a great place if you get to know real Londoners, which is not as easy as you might imagine. Almost everybody is passing-through and many Londoners have long ago moved to the sticks.

    Getting anywhere from London is easy, so Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff, et al are less than an hour away from LHR.

    Don't let blackmail! put you off, he's French.

    FWIW, Paris is now officially a museum. It has lost it's soul; whereas London never had a soul.

    All the best.

    Haha, my high school would compete against Quincy. That's a true wasteland.

    If you have more trips to central Washington, I always recommend hikes in the Alpine Wilderness area. If you don't have time to do the Enchantments, at least go to Lake Stuart. Also, some of the places around Lake Chelan. I've always wanted to do the trek from North Cascades to the lake.
    It was gorgeous and the music was great. Is this off of Highway 2 in the Leavenworth area or further up 5?

    Those photos are like post cards, just beautiful. You're making it hard to leave.

    You'll miss Pike's Market too.

    I have lived in countless places; such is the fate of an Army brat.

    You will miss Washington, but it has served you as best it can for now.

    You always have the option to return, whether for travel or relocation.

    The most important part of living there, the people you have met and befriended, are easy to keep current with now that the WWW is mature.

    Be at peace, enjoy your last weeks there, do your favorite things, and experience a few new ones if you can, and leave it with a smile.

    Remember, it's always best to leave the party while you're still having fun.

    Oh damn, I'm sorry for you that you have to move from such a beautiful place. I've been living for 5 months in Denmark now, coming from Venice, and that has made me decide that I don't want to live anywhere but in Italy. Luckily I'll come back in June. Anyway, I really hope that you will find much satisfaction in your job, so that you will not need to worry about nice landscape and architecture

    Correct. Although I am not a fan of the town of Leavenworth, the nature around it is beautiful.

    The worst part is that I agree with Bananatrombones even here... :rolli:

    But... Things might change very soon. Have you heard of the Grand Pari du Grand Paris?

    So you're going to clean the joint up a bit Blackmail? When is this supposed to happen? Are you just presenting plans in November? I assume it will take a while to get this done.

    Tell me more.

    that's the one... i guess when you're at the bottom of the bucket, everything is an opportunity. it's not entirely pathetic, though, at least it's not as bad as winchester (where?) and it's the only place ive lived where you can tell which direction the wind is blowing by the way it smells... rotten potatoes means southeast, manure is north-ish. although it's really moving up lately, they put in another traffic light which doubled the total.

    Been away from Seattle for two years now.

    I dearly miss it. But enough to move back though.
