A Short Walkabout

Sunny days shouldn't be wasted. Come take a walk!

Just across the street

I'd lament the demise of this great little building, but since the shipyard was festooned with Dino Rossi posters not so long ago, I content myself with muttering about Republican Infrastucture.

The bridge over the Hoquiam River.

The riverfront walkway flowering plum trees in bloom.

Low Tide: things you don't usually see.

Stay Out! This means you!

The footing of the old bridge now serves as a pedestal for this glass boat.

Even during low tide, I don't see how someone got out there to hang this sign: "Mother Nature is Awesome!"

Barge? Car Ferry?

The best damned burgers in town: Al's Humdinger, since 1974.

Clearly, Hoquiam, WA is far more scenic than little old Oak Park, IL.

And that's only the first six blocks from the front door. This place amuses me endlessly.

Tammy, it occurs to me that this picture could be taken from a post-modern version of “Myst.”

How’s that for nerdiness?!
