Well this morning I exhausted all the pictures in my added supply and had to go out and take another round. The pictures will translate into 16 new web pages for the Marysville section on the website. It is easy to rack up many pictures and the challenge comes when page construction begins. Tonight I may get started and built a page or two. So far all I have gotten is weird looks from residents or people in the parks. No one has accused me of anything sinister which surprises me for some reason. When going around and taking pictures I think what my perception would be if I seen some random person snapping photos of me or my house. When taking the park pictures I have been tempted to walk up to the people and introduce myself but felt stupid so I didn't.So if anyone sees the black pickup...

Jennings Nature Park is located on 64th, boarders the neighborhood Parkview Estates and is connected to Jennings Memorial Park via a walking trail. The park has a large playground for children to burn all the energy and benches for parents to have a great view of their children's antics. The park is well maintained and is perfect for an afternoon walk or to spend a day reading a great book. Jennings Nature Park is also a favorite destination for school environmental and biology classes because it is perfectly situated on the Allen Creek watershed. It gives students a unique opportunity to learn about out environment while being in a outdoor setting. In the picture below, young students can be seen running up the hill after a long day of studying towards the playground and restrooms.

Jennings Memorial Park boarders Armor Rd and is one of Marysville's largest parks at 51 acres. Back in 1961 it was donated by the Jennings family, their family farm, to the City of Marysville for preservation and to provide a place for people to come and play. The park has gone through many improvements over the years and I was thoroughly surprised upon visiting the other day how well maintained it is. During my walk through Jennings Memorial Park I got the chance to visit with two ladies, one being 81, about the history of the park and of Marysville in general. They both were life long residents and shared many stories about what life used to be as well looked like. Over the years many things have changed and I am glad there is a place like Jennings Memorial Park that preserved the nat...

Parkview Estates is well maintained neighborhood in Marysville Washington that has instant appeal due to location and layout. It has ramblers as well as two story homes that bring diversity and maintain continuity from cult-de-sace to cult-de-sac. Parkview borders Jennings Nature Park and backs up to Jennings Memorial Park (that is rich in Marysville history) and gives residents great access to 64th (Highway 528).The one thing that impresses me about Parkview Estates is the curb appeal of the neighborhood and the wide streets that allow for easy through traffic. Now Spring is approaching the neighborhood is starting to blossom and the awe, especially at the entrance, is demonstrated by the trees that border the walk ways and the homes.

It is totally nice outside which is a nice change from yesterday's day weather when it was trying to snow. The trees are starting to bloom and there are some neighborhoods that I have been meaning to shoot for some time now. My plan is to hit the old the part of North Everett that over looks the Everett Marina and Port Gardners Wharf, the Puget Sound and the Olympic Mountains then I'll head back into Marysville and head up highway 528 and shoot three neighborhoods that site in there. It will give me some more material for our Everett and Marysville page on our website. It will take me a few days to get all the information uploaded and written but totally worth it. Well I am getting out of the office for a bit...lata

About 2 hours ago I was taking off to run over to Everett and upon walking outside I noticed it was trying to snow. Isn't it supposed to be the first day of Spring? Well it maybe but in Washington just about anything can happen from one day to the next. Washington is the state that invented "Partly Sunny" weather conditions because partly sunny is a nice day :) Well back to the snow...after jumping in the truck I started traveling South on Highway 526 and it was snow pretty good, really wet though, and the temperature was falling pretty sharply. But now it seems to have lightened, for the moment, and warmed up enough to keep rain in its liquid form. It seems that Father Winter isn't leaving with a fight :) Fine by me...maybe I'll hit the mountains to catch some air before its all over.

Roncrest is one of Marysville's older neighborhoods that retains the small town community feel. It mainly comprised of ramblers with single car garages. Most of the homes in the neighborhood have large lots sizes with the homes situated on the front portion of the lot making the back yard plenty big to tossing the football or rough house.Roncrest has great location for families with elementary and middle school age children. Two blocks East lies Cedarcrest Middle School and everyday kids can be seen walking home along the sides of 88th. It also is located near, 5 blocks, Cedarcrest Golf Course on 67th so it no big deal to get on the weekend for a round of golf.

Cedarcrest Golf Course is City of Marysville's Municipal course as well as the oldest golf course in Snohomish County. That is pretty amazing because it looks so great. In 1997, just after I graduated high school, Cedarcrest Golf Course went through a major reconstruction phases that updated the course as well as redid all the greens and fairways.I have been playing there for most of my life and it never gets any easier but all in all it isn't to hard either. Ryan Noback has hosted the Jerry Noback Memorial Golf Tournament their with all the proceeds going to the Make-a-Wish Foundation. If you would like more information on rates and contact information please visit the Cedarcrest Golf Course page.

During prohibition moon shiners made there special brew and made the greatest effort to keep it out of sight. What would Marysville be without a little moon shine history? Well in those days the East Hill of Marysville received the name Whiskey Ridge from the moon shine era. It has long since changed from the time but there was a rumor going around, when I was a senior in high school, 1996, that when the hill was cleared old stills where found. So the moon shiners really did make their brew there.Yesterday, when taking pictures, there were children playing basketball and tossing a baseball around. It gave me a big smile to see all the kids out playing and it made me think back to when I was a young tike. Moving on, Whiskey Ridge is comprised of both two story and rambler style homes tha...

Yesterday I got out of the office and ventured around Marysville to take some pictures. My first stop is Cedarcrest South just off 67th on the East end of town. Upon entering the neighborhood you are greeted by the neighborhood sign, which needs some TLC, and wide streets for easy traveling. Cedarcrest South is comprised of both two story homes and rambles with unique styling, large lot sizes and ample driveway and street parking (some homes have RV parking as well).

So you may be wondering "why and the heck would I move to Marysville Washington over another city?" and the reason is: location, location, location. Marysville Washington is so centralized it isn't even funny. Near the major Cities: Marysville Washington is 30 miles north of Seattle, 10 miles from Lynnwood, 2 miles from Everett. If working in a metropolitan area is a must then take some time to travel North and see what type of living environment and relaxed atmosphere that is Marysville Washington.Near the Water: The Puget Sound is but a hope skip and jump, literally, to get to and can be accessed through many ways. One of the easiest places to access the Puget Sound is through Ebey Waterfront Park. But if that park doesn't work for your boat size travel to the Everett Marina, just off...
