Definitely not on Camano. There's a really odd mix of people. The north end of the island has more money and you may see that, but as you go south you get more working class.
My neighborhood has several Navy families, a carpenter, a retired truck driver for the postal service, a GC and a guy who works in a local casino though I'm not sure what he does there. Lots of pickups in my part of town and most of them aren't clean and shiny all the time like the ones you see people buy for status rather than utility.
There are also a lot of artists scattered around. From painters and glass blowers to people who do some really interesting metal sculpture.
From where I'm at it takes me about an hour to get to work in Everett. From there it would be about another hour into Seattle. Island Transit is paid for by a small sales tax, so if you wanted to bus into Everett (as I do about half the time) there's no fare. Just get on and ride. The Everett bus takes you right to Everett Station where you can get he Sounder train into Seattle for just a few bucks. My daughter and I made that trip yesterday to visit the EMP/Scifi Museum and catch an IMAX 3D movie. It was daddy-daughter nerd day.
I grew up in Forks, out on the coast and lived in Ellensburg, Port Angeles and Stanwood after that. I love living on Camano.
