The full moon. It occurred at 23 degrees today, a detail I read on the internet but don’t actually know what it means, or if it’s even a real thing. But this is what the full moon looked like at 9:30-ish tonight from Bhy Kracke park on Queen Anne, shining its light in the darkest places.
So far this week, after a serious moment at closing…
…we took ourselves to a celebratory dinner at an iconic special occasion place (whose name will become obvious as you scroll along with me). However, the valet parking man was completely flummoxed by the camera I produced for our smiling photo, and all I was able to record of that moment was this poorly shot evidence of our visit.
It was an uncharacteristically warm evening, memorable.
Never mind, though. Regeneration is at hand. Or something.
I really love champagne. And tonight I got to taste some delicious ones, as well as take a vicarious trip to the French vineyards and cellars where the bubbles are cultivated.
As seen earlier this evening at Fat Cork champagne importers on Lower Queen Anne.
It has been a few years since I have seen such an upbeat energy at office meetings four weeks running. We’re noticeably more animated around here lately.
Our office reported four sales last week, and we viewed four new listings this morning. Only one is yet on the market, this 1908 Queen Anne sweetheart that has recently been rejuvenated and reimagined.
The open floor plan is a perfect partner with the all-encompassing western views.
I like the clean finishes that are traditional but fresh, too.
1821 9th Ave W, Seattle 98119. Three bedrooms, three and one-half baths. 2700 interior square feet on a 5400 square foot lot (and a really nice backyard, a rarity on Queen Anne). Views of Elliot Bay, the marina, the Olympics and beyond. Asking price $1,175,000.
