I'm having fun showing off my town in these pictures. The red caboose on Gilman Boulevard has has been the home to several businesses over the years. It is currently a barber shop but I've sometimes thought it would be a good location for little bike rental business since it is at the southern end of the Lake Sammamish Trail.
Whenever somebody tells me I'm lucky to live here I agree with them, but I also point out that a lot of work goes into that luck. A few years ago, I was asked to speak at the dedication of one of these trails. I closed my remarks by paraphrasing Bruce Springsteen:
"When it comes to luck, we make our own
we've got dirt on our hands, but we're building a home."
I think Issaquah is a pretty damn nice home.
Keep 'em rolling,
