Our house, in the middle of our street

Here's a picture of our house, taken this spring. We got a good deal on it when we moved here in the summer of 1999. However, if we'd known that the town was going to explode with new developments, we never would have moved to Bonney Lake.

Sagan doesn't scare me, but I wouldn't want to be on the receiving end of one of his bites. We had to have this 6' fence put in after he escaped the yard 2 days after we adopted him!

This is a picture of Allan Yorke Park, at the southernmost end of Lake Tapps, in Bonney Lake. It's about a half mile walk from our house to the park.

Bonney Lake is definitely overdeveloped, but you can't beat the fact that Mt. Rainier is only about 45 miles to the east. As you can see, it towers over the town. Still, I'm glad we bought a house in the "old part" of town, in an already-established neighborhood.

Story of my life....


  1. What a gorgeous place, JoJo. As for Sagan - well I'm glad you didn't call the naughty boy Satan, he just doesn't look mean enough to beware of.

    Tought I'd let you know, mom tried the quiz and it said her personality was like heroin. "You're capable of the highest highs and the lowest lows.
    Addicted to feeling good, you'll do almost anything to avoid pain.
    People seek you out, even though you can be quite moody. They're hooked on you! "

    Okay, now I'm going to go actually look at your blog.

  3. oh jojo... it is magnificent; what a beautiful setting, what a beautiful home.

  4. Your home is just beautiful. It must be wonderful to be so close to Mt. Rainier.

    I get to Seattle a couple times a year.....I love it.
