We both did our morning walks, but Mt. Rainier was hidden behind the low clouds.

Larry found a River Walk and an interesting mural of a tunnel that was very lifelike.

We had lunch in the coach and then went touring. We drove into Tacoma to see the Chihully Glass Bridge and walk around by the Marina at the south end of Puget Sound.

Visit Chihuly Bridge of Glass herefor more information.

It was a mix of old and new and culture and entertainment. There was an old historical Cereal Mill building that was for "Loft Living".

When we returned to the lodge, we met our next door neighbors Ron & Carol Thompson, inviting them into the lodge for drinks in the bar. We had a great time with them both as stories were bantered about, especially by the men. We had a lot in common. Maybe they will join us next year going to Alaska.
