I am thinking of moving to the Port Angeles/Sequim area to be close to my family. It's costing me a pay cut but it's worth it to be next to relatives. I was wondering if there are areas to avoid, or places that are better/worse in both towns. I will be renting at first, just got through a divorce and the credit is shot so I'll need either a cheaper home or townhouse.

Default Never lived by the Ocean

I have a question that may seem pretty silly to those of you that have lived by the ocean all your lives, so just bear with me.

If you live, let's say in Port Angeles and you work in Sequim or another coastal town, can you drive a boat to work? Is it faster to go via the ocean sometimes and how much more expensive?

Quick answer ... Seattle, Sequim, Port Angeles are not on the ocean, but Puget Sound, a common mistake. I would think it's much fast, cheaper and safer to drive from Port Angeles to Sequim.









mod interpose: to eliminate confusion, Seattle is on Puget Sound, Sequim and Port Angeles are located on bays in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

You can only drive a boat to work if you have Fabio hair, wear button-up shirts with the top 4 buttons undone, and drive your boat while standing up.

Otherwise, it's just not practical.

How is the social scene over in Port Angeles and Sequim. I've been divorced for a year now and think I might try dating.

It's great if you like lumberjacks.

Are there female lumberjacks? If they are a good person and have a good heart their profession shouldn't matter.

OMG. This thread is cracking me up. Im a sequim'ite. There really isn't a "night life" unless you go to the town T or the casino.. If you like the outdoors you could join a hiking club.. but people usually meet others via networking, or friends.
