I live near the huge beautiful Olympic Park, protected, clean and the water. Noise is almost non existent. Air quality is amazing. Stars shine bright. We had several storms roll through. Sitting on my new deck, listening to the rain, I couldn’t remember the air smelling so good.

Color me green with envy. When I bought my current house, quiet was at the top of the list. My quest: What is the most quiet place I can get while being a reasonable distance to work & horse and having high-speed internet?

With the slightest breeze through the trees, I cannot hear traffic on the nearest highway, which is 1/2 mile away. No small feat since I work in the Virginia Beach/Norfolk, VA metropolitan area.

In the mid-80's, our ship pulled into Everett, WA for a few days. Couple of buddies & I drove down to the Olympic Park for a hike and it was just wonderful. I look forward to getting back there.
