Sequim, under construction…again

Believe it or not, there are those who like for me to stop this blog…hide Sequim under a bushel, so to speak…don’t tell a soul about how wonderful it is to live here. Some days I can’t blame them. I moved here in 1995 permanently. To my way of thinking, coming from a city of 80,000 plus, it was a sleepy little town and it suited me just fine. Apparently it suits a lot of other folks too.
As of late, it seems as though everywhere you look there are new homes and businesses being built. I will be sharing just of few of these over the next week….and I have to do it with my old, old camera. My little Cannon has a problem. It has to go to the doctor and that has not been with out a lot of cussing and crying on my part. Hopefully they will return it to me quickly. Otherwise, I may just have to turn fickle and buy the new S5 IS when it comes out in June.

  1. Where are all the people coming from? The same explosion in housing and subdivisions and retail stores is happening all over and I just don’t know what sustains it.

    Well, I suppose in Sequim, it’s the weather and the scenic beauty which attacts, maybe retirees? Is the population increasing there?

    Here there is all this growth but the population isn’t growing – so how to explain it? I can’t.

  2. Don’t stop taking pictures. Was able to vist Sequim in 1974 and fell in love with the town. Called my wife and asked her to sell the house, bring the kids and meet me there. Unfortunately that didn’t happen and I returned to Louisiana on the next plane. Through the wonders of the internet I enjoy all the pictures of the Sequim area I can find. Thanks again for sharing your photos.

  3. I can understand the angst of having people move in. That is happening all around me. It’s amazing how many non-southern accents I hear on a daily basis. I want a beautiful small town — but you also want residents to have well-paying jobs and good infrastructure and good schools. Progress is part of providing those things — but the downside is that the small town grows to a small city. I just tell myself, growth is better than stagnation. Growth is good. That’s my mantra anyway. But when I see the farmland disappearing…I still feel melancholy. 🙂
