Here is a view from my bedroom window early in the evening. We live next to a little inlet that is off of Liberty Bay. Downtown Poulsbo is on Liberty Bay. It is lovely were I live there is water everywhere. It feels like living on an island. We do live near Bainbridge Island and I lived on Bainbridge for 9 years and LOVED it. Any time I need to go anywhere I have to drive around Liberty Bay. On those rare days it is sunny the water is so blue.
Our inlet does have a tide, so half the time it is mud flat. But then you can see the seagulls and blue herons. We like to walk over to the bridge and check out what is going on. Sometimes there are otters. If we walk another block there is a small marina. We will go down there, get an ice cream, go sit on the pier and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is just something about the water.
If you look at the picture above, you will see a line of trees and water. That is the Sound. The mountain range behind it is Bainbridge Island. On the Fourth of July we can see the fireworks from Seattle over the top of that range. I love the smell of the water, the sound of the birds, all the empty clam shells left in my yard, the sandy soil, the peace of the water. This is a small part of my small world.
