Lakewood’s Paul Wulfestieg was in the Port of Tacoma on Friday and happened upon the shipyard where the Kalakala is being dismantled. He snapped the following pictures.
Photo: Lake City Park – after the season. A great place to relax on an autumn afternoon.
The Steilacoom Branch of Pierce County’s oldest library in the state (1858!) got a new roof last week–after 20 years. Stop by the library to see what else is new this summer.
Photo: Flags and flower baskets decorate Lafayette street in Steilacoom in advance of the summer season: Farmers Market begins June 11; concerts begin June 25. Come visit the “Town on the Sound.”
I had just taken this picture of the “Love Locks” a day or so before the cable broke or was broken at Chambers Bay in University Place. I was curious about what they could possibly mean, and my kids naturally – kids are so smart – were able to tell me that in “locking their love” and throwing away the key, it was a symbol that love would last forever.
Signs of spring are visible: from the Old Settler’s Cemetery crocuses, to the Towne Centre’s flowering plum trees; and snowdrops and jonquils lining the gateway at Lakewold Gardens and lots of camellia blossoms budding up around the lake.
Demolition at Old Pioneer School – the original Steilacoom School – is progressing. The District Office has plans to relocate into the original early 20th century structure later this spring.
Monday’s warmer (sort of) temperatures and afternoon rain quickly washed away the weekend snow. A few more images, just for the heck of it…
We don’t see snowfall very often in Lakewood, University Place and surrounding areas often. A call to The Suburban Times readers for pictures turned up a few fun ones. Enjoy.
The Clover Park School District dedicated Carter Lake and Hillside Elementary schools on Wednesday, October 16. Both schools are on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The event to honor both schools took place at Carter Lake Elementary School. Thanks to Gary Sabol for the pictures.
