Random Pictures - What do we have here?

Here are some pictures...sure hope you enjoy them. Comments are under each picture.

This is Ron in the yellow sub (ticket box) in Lacey. The swings in the background are called the Lolli's. Ron sets up and tears down the Lolli's at each location.

This is Alice driving the motor home from Port Townsend along Highway 20. This was taken shortly before Ron yelled at me to move over. Seems I was too close to the right side for his comfort. Something about a deep ditch nearby.

This is Alice in the yellow sub in Lacey. Behind her is the scrambler. New rules out now that there are no single riders and you must wear the provided seatbelt for safety. There was an accident last year on the East Coast where I child stood up in a scrambler bucket and was tossed out and was killed (SAD). Funtastic Shows theme song is Safety, Safety, and Safety for customers and employees alike.



This is a buffalo for a carousel that was hand made by a fifth generation carver. It is in the local ice cream & candy shop in Port Townsend.



This is the bottom of the hill that we had to climb to get to the post office. There is a beautiful view from the top of the hill overlooking the water.



This is the post office, built in 1893. It is at the top of the hill. This picture was taken from down below in the town square in Port Townsend.



This is the front of the post office. The front stairs to the far left are blocked off. You have to enter from the side of the building. It is three stories tall.



In the left corner is the side of the post office. The big house on the right is James House Inn. It was built in 1896. It appears a young family is running the inn now as there is all sorts of playschool play yard equipment in the side yard. We counted 4 fireplaces in the place.

That's all the pictures for now. I will try to take some of the carnival set up here in Ft. Lewis this weekend. It will depend on the weather. Today has been rainy, then sunny, then rainy, then sunny...I think you get the picture.

Hope everyone is having a great day.

  4. Ali, thank you for your comment on my blog. We head home on I-84 west to I-205 north since we live in Vancouver, WA.

    Tomorrow we are going to stop in Baker City to revisit the Oregon Trail Museum there.

    It's been a great trip! Thanks for following along.

  6. Thanks for stopping by the site! I had to come check out your piece of the web and am glad I did. It takes me back to my days working and traveling with a carnival in Australia for six months. Those were great times. I hope you're having as much fun as I did!
