Hello Seattle {Owl City}

In honor of the upcoming trip, here I post a beloved song by a beloved artist and some pinterest photos of things/places I relate with Northwestern loveliness

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots
And awake in your mouth

Hello Seattle, I am a manta ray
Deep beneath the blue waves
I’ll crawl the sandy bottom of Puget Sound
And construct a summer home

Hello Seattle, I am the crescent moon
Shining down on your face
I will disguise myself as a sleeping pill
And descend inside of you

Hello Seattle, I am a cold seahorse
Feeling warm in your sand
I sing about the tide and the ocean surf
Rolling in the evening breeze

Hello Seattle, I am an albatross
On the docks and moored boats
I sail above your inlets and interstates
Through the rain and open wind

Hello Seattle, I am an old lighthouse
Throwing beams of bright lights
Red in the morning, blue in the evening sun
Taking heed for everyone

Hello Seattle, I am a mountaineer
In the hills and highlands
I fall asleep in hospital parking lots

Take me above your light
Carry me through the night
Hold me secure in flight
Sing me to sleep tonight

Take me above your light (Hello Seattle)
Carry me though the night (I am a mountaineer, in the hills and highlands)
Hold me secure in flight (I fall asleep in hospital)
Sing me to sleep tonight (parking lots, and awake in your house)

Fro-Yo! While this is universal in America, I still associate it with WA because we ate some up there with our besties and it just seems right, because it’s cold? The Northwest is cold? (though by this logic, hot chocolate would seem more appropriate, right?)

Lighthouses! They are so beautiful! I saw my first lighthouse in WA.

Salmon can be very delish

Redwood trees are masters of all trees, at least as far as I know. Because I only see “bushes” around here in North central TX
