After I left Nisqually I decided to head down to Olympia, as I've never spent any time there other than whizzing by on Interstate 5. I figured I've been here 12 years, I should probably check out my state capitol.
Capitol Lake, West Bay and the Olympic Mountains.
Washington State Legislative Building. Not quite as impressive as Victoria's.
No dumping in Puget Sound please!
I like the State Patrol cars but not when they are behind me with their lights on. lol
This image really cracked me up.
I realize that my state is named after George Washington and all, but we have the world's most boring state flag.
World War 1 Memorial
Another view of the Olys
After I left the Capitol Buildings, I headed down to 4th Avenue in downtown. Olympia is like a miniature Berkeley or Haight Ashbury.
Not that I'm a Molsons fan, I just liked the leaf. When it comes to Canadian beer, I'm partial to Kokanee.
Of course I stopped into this Deadhead/Reggae store.
I loved this Harley Davidson-like neon sign at the guitar shop.
I could have bought EVERYTHING in this little antique and curio shop, but I was a good girl and didn't buy anything. The last thing I need is another knick knack.
Lots of murals in town.
Now that's what I call a hookah!!!
