On the Beach

What a beautiful day!  I think we are predicted to have one more of this summer-like weather before we cool down and have more rain.

I took advantage of it to go to a location I have on my list:  Tolmie State Park. I thought it might be a location for an Urban Sketchers outing.  After having been there, I’m not so sure.

The park is named for Dr. William Fraser Tolmie (1812-1886) who spent 16 years with the Hudson Bay Company at Fort Nisqually as a physician, surgeon, botanist, and fur trader.  He was also the Factor (administrator) of the Fort.

    I always wondered what Tolmie State Park looked like: now I know with your descriptive painting…some day maybe I’ll get there.
