At Least We Don’t Have to Trade Hometowns

This picture from yesterday’s paper has nothing to do with the latest from Bremerton, but some of us still want to wallow in it for a while. There’s a new hotel right on the water downtown from where we can recover from the Super Bowl while we look out the window and give thanks for where we live. Or, if an entire hotel stay isn’t necessary, I recommend a ride up to the top floor of the Norm Dicks Government Center for a look at the view.
Even if our sports teams break our hearts, we still get to live here.
Yeah sure, the skies are gray a lot this time of year and some people are just now getting their power turned back on. But when this places shines it’s heavenly.
You can have your trophy. I’d have preferred having it come here this year, but even if we never get another shot I feel pretty blessed to call this place home. That will certainly do for now and for a long, long time.
I’ll be in Portland today, learning some more about writing business stories.
In the meantime, if you go to the Kitsap Sun you’ll find a story about a new hotel planned for downtown Bremerton.
Maybe by the time it’s finished we’ll all be over our disappointment about the Seahawks. Actually, that’s entirely possible, because the sale isn’t scheduled to close until January of next year.
Wait ’til XLI!

  1. Steve,
    Amen to that. As someone who is just biding her time on the East Coast until she can return to the Northwest, I totally agree with your assessment that little can best what Puget Sound has to offer. The folks out here can keep their nasty traffic, their rush-rush-rush lives, their general unfriendliness – and their Super Bowl trophy. I’ll take a few rain drops and that view of the Olympics any day.
