Pet Sitting Oscar

When Oscar and I aren’t at the dog park or taking our walks around the beautiful Queen Anne neighborhood…

we are hanging around the Condo overlooking the beautiful view of Seattle and Elliott Bay.  I enjoy watching planes of all different shapes and sizes circling over the city on their way to SeaTac.  I have even seen a couple of unique aircraft.

I even saw a blimp come in and land at Seattle Center and leave again

Barges and ferries are constantly coming in and out of Elliott Bay.

Since I’ve been here there has been all kinds of weather.  We’ve had a wind storm with gusts of over 50 mph.  The big planters on the deck blew over and there were fallen branches and debris all over on our walk.  For over a week the city was covered with an unusual fog bank.  And we’ve had cloudy and sunny days.  Every day is beautiful in its own way.  Here are some shots I’ve gotten of the beautiful view.

On Oct. 26th the Space Needle was lit in Husky Purple as a tribute to UW football coach Don James.  The fog cover made it look Absolutely awesome!

Oscar isn’t too interested in the view.  When I’m not rubbing his belly or playing tug of war with him, he’s pretty content hanging out on his bed.

When I’m not enjoying the sights of the Bay and City, I’m watching the birds coming onto the deck and getting their breakfast.  I put out peanuts every morning for them.

And the hummingbirds come to get their nectar.  There are two that I see.  I think it’s a male and female.  They’re so sweet and delicate.

Soon I’ll be leaving Oscar and this wonderful place, but I’m looking forward to going to the Phinney Ridge neighborhood to pet sit for a couple of pups I’ve watched before with a new little 4 month old Yorkie addition.
