Welcome to the Travel Challenge Staycation version. This year Erin decided to have us blog about our home town. I currently live in Olympia Washington. I moved here approximately 22 years ago when my daughter was ready to start high school.
Olympia is the capital of the state of Washington and was established as a city in 1859. It is also the county seat of Thurston County. It makes up part of the tri-city area of Puget Sound, the other cities being Lacey and Tumwater.
On my staycation I took daily walks with my dog., Hank. He is a Chow and Lab mix and the most gentle dog that I know. He is a very people person, always loving some attention.
The strap over his nose is called a "Gentle Lead" which allows me to have a bit of control over him as he is a big dog (90 lbs.) He doesn't mind it too much but is glad to get it off once we are home.
One of Hank's favorite places to visit. The wait staff always has a doggie biscuit or two when we come by.
You will see giant sunflowers in peoples yards as they grow to six-seven feet tall.
Please visit Erin's website (2nd-annual-challenge-of-travel) to see the list of other participants.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will come again.
