«09' Vacation Photos, Part 4 (Photo Heavy)»

These photos span a time frame between May 22th and May 26th, 2009. This is a continuation from my July 5th post. Click an image to view full.

This is in Burlington, Washington. It's a children's church. Even though I'm an atheist and I think lying to and brainwashing kids is wrong, I can still appreciate the thought that went into re-creating Noah's Arc. Now you've just got the small issue of explaining that 2 of each species of animal on the entire Earth fit within such a small ship, and there was enough food and fresh water for all of them (you've also got to keep predators away from prey). Though I doubt this re-creation would float in the event that the river floods...

Crates of ShamWoW's in Costco. Remember, the commercial says "Not In Stores"... Oops.

I caught the sunset the next day, too. This was taken from the levee near the Riverbend RV Park.

Mount Vernon is known for its flowers, tulips in particular.
Skagit Gardens nursery.
This is the perfect house for the area. The Skagit River has been known to flood despite the levee. This guy would just have his garage flooded; the house would be fine.
Raised house.
You'd be surprised at what you can load into a Toyota Prius. (And still get 50 mpg!)

To be continued tomorrow (July 8th, 2009). Yes, there's still more!

  1. Mount Vernon is such a nice place. I haven't been there in a long while.

    And remember, most kids will believe just about anything you tell them.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
