On New Year's Eve, Mr. Goodlaff and I hung around the house until about 11:30, then went to find a hill in West Seattle with a great view of the Space Needle. We were very successful:
The fireworks started at midnight, and though I'm sure they were awesome in person, they were just as beautiful from far away (maybe even better--we had no crowds!).
Second best New Year's Eve, ever.
When we were apartment hunting, the property manager told us we'd have a partial view of the Puget Sound from our unit, but with all of the leaves off of the tree in front of our apartment, we pretty much have a full-on Sound view until Spring.
Visibility wise, some days are better than others, but yesterday was stellar:
I get to look at that every day. Amazing!
