We’ve been looking for several years for the right place outside of the city. It’s been difficult because there’s a lot about urban life that we enjoy. But we either need more of it or less of it, and we’re not prepared to move to Manhattan, London, or Paris.
So less it is. Specifically, Bainbridge Island which is a 35-minute ferry ride from the Seattle waterfront. We’re looking forward to the opportunities that Island life provides: cycling, kayaking, and a home for Étude!
We won’t move until August, so there will be time to say more about the move, the Island, the whole story. In the meantime, we must sell our house, complete a two-month boat trip, and prepare for Bordeaux and Catalonia in the Fall.
