Dad turns 85 this year but one thing hasn’t changed, I still can’t keep up with him.  He’s the hardest working man I’ve ever met.  He’s the product of a long line of hard working men.Here’s dad a few years back, with his father and his grandfather.  I knew all these men and carry with me today lessons they’ve passed on.  Happy Father’s Day to all the men, who invest themselves in the lives of kids. The world is better for it.

Mercer Island, located in King County and within the Seattle metro area sits right in the southern portion of Lake Washington. While it is an island community, it is connected by I-90 and other bridges, providing those living in this area easy access into the community itself. Mercer Island is home to about 22,700 people, making it one of the most populated islands in the United States. It also has the fifth highest per capita income in the state. There are plenty of reasons to live and work within this community.One of the key advantages of living on Mercer Island is the extensive parkland that is available here.

Sundown over Seattle 2, a Silent Sunday with HDR. I've been spending a lot of time here lately and also playing with a new HDR program, which I may write more about soon.  Here's a view over Lake Washington, with the Olympic Mountains in the background silhouetted. The Twin Sisters Peaks standing out in this view.  To see a fuller panoramic view go to Sundown over Seattle Silent Sunday.

Mercer Island, then & now.  Wordless Wednesday A little shopping center across a one lane street from an overgrown lot.  A gas station, an old cabin converted to a small business, some old cars.   A strip mall with a crowded parkeing lot, across a 3 lane road, a building crane bringing on what's next.   1961 to 2015 has seen a few changes. I used to play in this lot, catch grass hoppers & snakes.  I don't do that anymore.

Sundown over Seattle, Silent Sunday We had missed Sunset, but the skies were still glowing and the day had been fantastic.  Perched upon a high spot on Mercer Island, we enjoyed the final few minutes of an incredible pre-spring day.   Just behind the trees to the right are the floating bridge and downtown sky scrapers.  The Olympic Mountains are in the center shot, silhouetted against the sky.

Home sales in Mercer Island have been increasing over the past two years, and the year-to-date totals are showing a strengthening trend for 2013.  So far this year we've seen 113 homes sold in Mercer Island, up from 91 sales at the same time last year. That 24.2 percent gain points to strong growth for the local market in terms of sales volume and pricing, as buyer demand continues to push values up.  Multiple-offers and quick sales seem to be the story across the greater Seattle market, and the story is no different in Mercer Island.   While most of the Seattle market has dropped to less than two months' inventory of homes available for sale, we may be seeing a bit of an uptick in Mercer Island.  The total inventory had dropped to around two months early this year, but a large crop of ...
