Edmonds for the Summer

After the long, cross country journey of a lifetime I finally settled into my home for the summer, Edmonds.  For all of those who (like me up until about a month ago) don’t know Edmonds, it’s a tiny little town right outside of Seattle.

With incredible views of Puget Sound, the mountains, and an adorable little downtown, it is a perfectly picturesque Pacific Northwest town.

We kicked off the summer with an evening sail around Puget Sound.  I can whole heartedly divulge, this is the best way to get to know your new coworkers and a new city – a lot better than some silly in office ice breakers!

After the winds turned against us we made the decision to head back in – conveniently just as the sun was setting.  One of the strangest things about living here is that the sun doesn’t set until long after 9 o’clock!

Of course everyone is quick to remind me that as wonderful as that is, the opposite (setting around 4 in winter) is quite horrible.  I guess it’s a good thing I’m just a summer resident and I can soak it up in all its glory, isn’t it?
