So, I’m here! I’ve been here since Friday but I’ve been holding off on a post until I got situated. And after spending my entire day on the couch all day watching One Tree Hill while it rained, constitutes as situated.
My apt is pretty nice, full size washer and dryer in its own laundry room, breakfast bar, dishwasher, private balcony, walk in closet and a nice bathroom. The neighborhood is pretty nice too, very residential.
Everyone’s flowers are in bloom. It’s gorgeous, you’d never see yards like this in Indiana. Friday when I moved in it was the perfect weather, 70 degrees, sunny and a cool breeze. It only took me an hour to unpack my car and then I left. I was not going to waste this perfect day unpacking.
First I went to downtown Tacoma and found where I worked. It’s like a little Chicago, but cleaner and not as big. I think proceeded to walk about 3 miles, at least around the city taking pictures.
Tacoma is known for their glass museum, I didn’t go to the museum hit they do have a bridge that displays something’s.
After walking downtown I drive up to Point Defiance Park which is surrounded by the Salish Sea. I think I read somewhere it is one of the best parks in the country. I didn’t walk through the park bc I wasn’t dressed for hiking but I did go straight to Owens beach.
It was gorgeous, you could see the city up on the hill and Mt. Ranier in the distance. Of course the water was chilly but there were a lot of ppl there. Then I went to the zoo.
That is a porcupine 🙂
I got a couch too, not from the zoo but on Facebook. I joined the local garage sale site and got a brown microfiber reclining couch for $250. It’s about a year old and the lady’s husband even delivered it and helped bring it upstairs. And funny enough they both were from North Dakota.
Mostly everything is unpacked and I am extremely excited to start work tomorrow. Especially because there will be a Cinco de Mayo potluck!
