We traveled to Tacoma for this short trip. Here is the view from our room at the Hotel Murano.
We headed north and saw this old Woolworth’s
and the office of our beloved radio station.
We were heading to the the McMenamins Elk Temple. There we visited Doc’s Bar, Spanish Bar
and then (our favorite) The Old Hangout.
Tom got a Hurricane in a cool Kraken-like cup.
Then we ubered to the Tacoma Dome and saw Jackson Browne
and James Taylor.
It was a great evening. Unfortunately I had a low battery iPhone, and we were not able to connect with Uber in the time that my battery allowed. So we ended up walking back. We took a wrong turn and ended up in a homeless encampment but figured our way back. It was actually beautiful crossing the bridge with blown glass art and passing by museums to our hotel.
This morning we headed to our favorite Tacoma breakfast spot, the Hob Nob. Here is a stump sculpture nearby.
Then we headed home. We did visit my gramma’s grave en route (as well as the great grandparents).
And we arrived home 10 minutes short of 24 hours. So it was a short but eventful trip.
PS And this afternoon I got a new battery put in my iPhone!
