Sleepless In Seattle

‘Sleepless in Seattle,’ a modern fairy tale come true. The 1993 blockbuster movie, ‘Sleepless in Seattle,’ was set in the houseboat community on Lake Union in heart of Seattle, just north of downtown, starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan. Tom Hanks played bereaved widower Sam Baldwin where he sat on the bench at the end of the dock (to the right in my image). He also stood leaning on the railing around to the left (out of my camera view) gazing at the stars as the lights of Seattle danced on the water beneath him. Ahhh, the memory of it all, it was a great romantic comedy, wasn’t it?! There was an opportunity several years ago to have purchased this houseboat (the largest on Lake Union at 2,720 square feet) with four bedrooms, 1.75 baths and a sweeping view of nearly 360°. It went for a cool $2.5 million bucks and Tom Hanks was not included in the sale!

I don’t watch a lot of movies, but I do enjoy Tom Hanks and have seen this move several times. What about you, are you a fan?(Clicking on any image gives an enlarged view).

Thanks for joining me today, for the view that is right here! ~ Madge
