When I rest on our front porch I can clearly see the skyscrapers of downtown Seattle, however the way they rise over the foothills as well as endless oceans of green trees is quite beautiful! I appreciate being this close to the city, at the same time I appreciate being this far away from it, too! Overall I assume Seattle is one of the greenest, friendliest, most forward-thinking locales to live, but I am a mountain man at heart as well as I like our privacy, and living this close to Seattle gives me all the advantages of being a resident, with none of the down sides; And then there is that beautiful view, as well as I keep in mind that if I lived in Seattle itself I would miss out on this breathtaking sight, however under a canopy of twinkling stars the Jet City of Seattle looks like a thing of beauty, however many nights I rest on our porch smoking cannabis, drinking beer, as well as just staring at Seattle! Which brings me to another excellent point about where I live. There are numerous great brewers as well as cannabis farmers in the Seattle section that make top-notch products. Why go through the trouble of growing our own pot or brewing our own beer when the craftsmen of Seattle do such a beautiful job? I am close enough to the neighborhood that I can go as well as get whatever I need, yet I still have the privacy as well as solitude of owning our own land. I am happy to call Seattle our neighbor, but I still don’t want to get any closer to it.
