Visiting Bellevue

I’ve been in Washington most of this week visiting the Demoxi office. Since I’ve been here last, they moved to a new office. The views out of the windows are really incredible – so incredible that every office is on the same side of the building.

Check out the view out of some of the offices here:

Near the right there you can see the base of Mount Rainier. The peak is hidden by clouds, but was clearly visible on the plane ride in.

About 2 offices to the right of this picture is a view of Lake Washington.

The sunset over the lake was an amazing view.

Craig and I walked into downtown Bellevue last night in search of food, and we came upon the Mall where all throughout the streets were what appeared to be high school band members handing out candy canes and popcorn before forming a parade with music. Apparently they do this every night in December.

I’d love to get out here in the summer sometime and actually have enough time to go visit the ocean (I’ve seen the Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico, but not the Pacific)

Right now it’s about 45 degrees here and everybody is cold, (especially Craig from California on our 6 block walk to the Cheesecake Factory) but that’s actually warm compared to Detroit where I can ice-skate on my lawn.

Speaking of my lawn, Google released Street View for the Detroit area. Here, you can see My House. That picture seems to have been taken a few months ago, while I wasn’t home, on trash day. Also, that’s not my address on the map (I’m well aware of the security threats, but my address is plastered all over everything anyway)

I just wanted to do a quick update. I’m working on a lot of things right now, so hopefully I’ll have some more interesting posts in a couple of days.

  1. Beautiful state, isn’t it?

  2. Yeah, it’s very nice out here.. but expensive. I don’t think I could afford to move out to washington (especially since I’d be taking a huge loss on my house.. combined with the fact that my house is about 1/3 the price of a similiar place in washington.)

    Owell. I guess i’ll be content with visiting once a month or so… now if only I could find a girl out there 🙂 hehe

  3. If you come visit, let me know. I’ll show you where I like to go in Seattle. Nice place. Reminds me of a bigger version of Ann Arbor.

  4. Josh, I didn’t know you were out there. You’ll have to get ahold of me online sometime and we’ll have to do dinner next time I’m out (early january)
