Who doesn’t love red? Not me. So I went looking through my archives and came up with lots of red from travels in my home state, ‘the other Washington.’
I saw this one day as I was walking to the Sculpture Park downtown and immediately thought of badminton. Wrong! It’s an umbrella turned inside out from the wind, about right for Seattle.
I had no such trouble identifying this one correctly. Popsicle anyone?
Ninety miles north or so you will find ‘For Handel’ at Western Washington University in Bellingham. I’ll always have a soft spot in my heart for this charming town and college campus and still find the sculpture as wonderful as when I attended school there, sometime in the last century.
Let’s cross the mountains now and find some more red at Apple Annie’s Antique Gallery in Cashmere. Though we’re mostly ‘de-collecting’ these days, it’s still fun to look through the gallery, wax nostalgic and grab a chocolate milkshake at the Fifties Diner.
While we’re on the other side of the mountains I might as well finish up in the tiny town of Zillah. Remember the Teapot Dome Scandal? Don’t worry, nobody else does either. The corruption scandal involved the U.S. Dept. of Interior leasing government oil reserves in exchange for bribes. This gas station was built in 1922 as a memorial to the scandal but the real Teapot Dome was the location of one of the oil reserves in Wyoming
