Punk Island

After our delicious tour of Seattle we turned South toward Olympia to meet a dear friend in Yelm. Along the way Mount Rainier danced with a cloud veil, reminding me of the way I like to pronounce its name.

So in a clear area we climbed above the cloud layer for a better look. In case you didn’t get it, I say Rainy-er because living in Seattle you seldom see this magnificent peak because it’s so much rainier than other places I’ve lived.

After the brief flight to Olympia we decided to take our friend on the easy ride out to Hoquiam, and climbing out after takeoff we got some nice views of the state capitol.

The complex has some interesting buildings, and we’d like to tour the area sometime.

While there were some beautiful and interesting sights along the way, the one that stands out for me is the little islet in the bay with a green punk hairdo.

It’s just too quirky for words. What could possibly have created this freak of nature, and why isn’t it world famous?
