Vancouver, Washington












































I have been in Vancouver, WA on business this week and there is the most amazing park right across from the motel. I had to act like a tourist and take my camera and take pictures. The first day here the weather was beautiful but it has been raining off and on since then but I was able to get a few pictures during a break in the weather. The first picture is a home that has been turned into a theater, the second one is a picture of the base of the bell tower, it has water running down it and the salmon are swimming upstream (did you know that the Indians believed that the spirit of their ancestors were in the fish?). Then there is a statue of a pioneer woman and her children and then last but not least is the bell tower, all four side have water coming down the sides and fish swimming up stream. Very impressive. The flowers are gorgeous and the grounds of the park are beautiful.

  3. You are missed my friend. I am sure this is one of the "perks" of your job so hope you have enjoyed. You deserve it. You are one of the hardest workers I have known...from sunrise to midnight. See you soon.

  5. Too funny. I used to travel to Vancouver, Wa on business all the time. There is an old Military camp that is fun to visit, with a great restaurant in a historic building. But so much to see in Vancouver you'll have to go back many times.

    Hope you have fun!
