Queen Anne hill remains my great nemesis. Someday I will take my bike there without suffering ignominious defeat. Today was not that day because I opted to leave the bike home. I have no regrets.
If we use a very generous concept of lunch break, I snuck off to tour during today’s. The 8 runs very near to my office, so I hopped on, took it all the way to its end, and got started. A new townhouse development on Olympic was open for tour and I checked out the offerings there. (I’m only counting it as two properties even though there were technically four.) Between that, the nearby co-op apartment, and the condo on Roy, it’s very fresh to me right now how easy it is to have a gorgeous view in Queen Anne.
After the condo on Roy I hopped on the SLU Streetcar toward Denny and took a look at two condos on Blanchard. More views, but very different.
The best part was the lucky timing; the 8 arrived to take me back to the office just as I reached its stop. Very efficient! And this was yet another tour where I noticed distinct envy from others when I didn’t have to find parking. I’m definitely a huge fan of that part.
