Bacon & eggs

I think it was on Evening, the TV show on King 5, where I heard about the Bacon and Eggs skate park in Wilkeson. It was a 45 minute drive, east of Bonney Lake (east of Tacoma and Puyallup). I had the place to myself as the kids weren’t yet out of school.

I find these sorts of oddities amusing. There is a traditional skatepark in back of my view here. But the fry pan, eggs, and bacon strip can also be skated. I sat on a high spot in the regular skate location.

The high edge of the regular skating area is in view on the left.

I also drove around town, looking at some of the historic buildings. I found the Eastern Orthodox Church. It was built in 1900.

A business there is reportedly the best pizza in the state. I planned my sketch outing to finish about when they opened at 1500. There was already a line. Only half wore a mask. No social distancing. This did not feel safe to me and thus did not join the line for pizza.
