This view is the exact reason why I love the Pacific Northwest! I mean, can you beat this stunning place with all of the boats in the blue water with mountains like that in the background? It is almost enough to make you forget you're in a city when you're staring out in this direction. I took this shot on a nice long walk after we had hit the Fish Market, Gum Alley and a few other things in the area. We just grabbed a cup of coffee and headed to the water, and as you can see, it was worth it!
