North and West Queen Anne

My husband and I were back in Queen Anne today for a 5.9 mile walk. We walked most of the street between 1st and 5th Avenues W from Blaine to Raye Street.

This is a lovely area of nice homes which got bigger the higher up the hill we went.

We saw a Queen Anne Boulevard historic landmarker but the street was not named Queen Anne Boulevard. (The link indicates that Queen Anne Boulevard is comprised of many different streets.)

We passed two houses with Smith Brothers Farms milkboxes on their porches,

a few palm trees,

a parking strip with yard art and a quote from Cicero, "If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."

We passed the Five Corners Hardware Store at the intersection of 3rd Ave W, W McGraw St and W McGraw Place a few times and there was always car and foot traffic. This intersection houses the hardware store, a mini mart, a vegetarian food services shop, a financial services office and a real estate office.

This area is home to Queen Anne Presbyterian Church,

Across from McClure, we spotted a building with a painting of "seven owls all in a row."

The area abuts Mount Pleasant Cemetery with the Butterworth Funeral Home, the Queen Anne Columbarium and the Cremation Society Northwest.

The pleasant walk was not as hilly as our other Queen Anne walks.
