About the only drawback of living here is getting used to the amount of rainfall we have. Most of its simply a slight drizzle, with lots of overcast days. But there's typically around 3 to 4 solid months of incredible weather that more than makes up for it.
Feel free to ask me any additional questions. I've got loads of photo galleries on my website and blog - http://www.KitsapLife.com and http://www.SoundBiteBlog.com
There are many local spots to get a good walk in a natural setting, and for a real wilderness experience the Olympic National Park is not much over an hour's drive away. There you will find wild rivers, pristine wilderness and even glaciers.
I think it is the best of both worlds, and I love it here.
