Announcing the 1st Annual Hot Air Balloon Festival is pretty exciting. Since it will be in the back yard of Legacy Homes, I’d thought I’d share some of the information they discovered from their website. In the last blog I mention the first two popular reasons to move to Sequim. 1. The Weather and 2. The chances of rain the weekend of the balloon festival are low. Here are reason’s 3 and 4…
3. The Farmlands ~ Sequim is in the heart of the Dungeness Valley, the only farming community on the Olympic Peninsula. There are plenty of open spaces for balloons to land safety.
4. The Beauty ~The Dungeness Valley is roughly a 15 x 30 mile valley nesstled between the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The view from the balloon is nothing like your traditional balloon event.
Steve and I grew up in Sequim and Forks and know the area well. If you are planning a trip here, wanting to move to the Sequim area or thinking of building or remodeling we’d be happy to share our knowledge about the Sequim Community and it’s surrounding areas.
