It was a beautiful day for a walk in Georgetown. My husband and I strolled 4 miles in the neighborhood just west of Boeing Field. We could see Mount Rainier as we looked down the runway.

This area is a real mix of residential, industrial and commercial but manages to have some lovely tree-lined streets and gardens, the Georgetown P-Patch and two nice parks.

We saw people out with their dogs at Ruby Chow Park

and tourists taking pictures in Oxbow Park next to the Hat and Boots historic buildings.

Homes are older and most are well maintained. Gardens appear to be loved.

We saw the nose of a plane,
what looked like a military installation, palm trees,

an abandoned mini mart,

train tracks,

garden art,

murals painted on garage doors,

industrial sites with pot gardens and flowers planted in parking strips, Rosso Gardens and the old Georgetown City Hall (now a dental office).

This area is home to the Georgetown Community Church,

Fire Station 27 (home of the Metropolitan Medical Strike Team and the Urban Search and Rescue Unit) and the Carleton Market.

Georgetown may be a small neighborhood but it has lots of personality.
