Deco Murals Of Bremerton, Washington

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Mount Vernon RV Resort in Bow, Washington. I’ll depart here August 9th. I’ve been here a number of times in past years.

 

I’ll be hanging out in this general area until about the beginning of October, taking maximum advantage of my Thousand Trails membership and very agreeable weather.

 

(Note: I’m currently a little discombobulated right now. My normal mode is to blog what I experienced yesterday. Right now, I’m a number of blogs behind my experiences. I expect to be back in my normal mode in about a month.)

 

Today’s subject…

I love being a photographer because I get to see a lot of things that most people miss during their daily walk of life. Looking at life through a little square hole for more than 40 years, zeros you into things held within the big picture.

Today’s subject is a great example…as a matter of fact…I almost missed them.

The below photo shows what the wall they are affixed upon is hiding…the Eighth Street Electrical Sub-Station…

Notice the wall on the very far right. On the street side of that wall are…

These wonderful deco-style murals of past Bremerton…

Just like old black and white photos….

They depict times past…

Which will never return…

Someone took great pains to make these beautiful creations…

Yet now they are in a neglected state….

DSC00522

 

 

 

 

In need of a gentle and loving cleaning….

DSC00523

 

 

 

 

I was able to clean them up in Picasa to some degree…

DSC00524

 

 

 

Difficult to do without ruining the effect of the mural….

DSC00526

 

 

 

Anyways, like I said earlier….

DSC00527

 

 

 

I’ll bet thousands of people pass-by this beautiful memorabilia…

DSC00528

 

 

 

Without ever seeing them….

I truly hope some responsible person in Bremerton will see this posting…

DSC00530And arrange for their cleaning.

 

As a matter of fact…right after this blog is posted, I’m going to email it to City Hall with the hope that they receive the much-needed attention. I’ll let you know if I receive any positive feedback from City Hall.

Bostons Pizza Deli – Bremerton, Washington

Today’s subject…

A couple of weeks ago I was in Bremerton, Washington. I had just finished a pleasant walk along the waterfront. It was about 1PM and I was feeling hungry when I stumbled upon Bostons Pizza & Deli. Hmmmmmmmmmm, I wondered, could it be?

 

I spent the first 40 years of my life not all that far from Boston. I remain a quasi Boston Red Sox fan since my now 18-year-old grandson Eric has had four showcases (show your stuff) with the Boston Red Sox. The Boston Red Sox play in the 104 year old Fenway Park. I went there a number of times as a youngster.

 

Anyways, back to my question. Ask any transplanted person from the east coast and they will all tell you the same thing… You cannot find a good pizza on the west coast!

 

I just had to go in to inquire. The clerk told me the owner (not currently there) grew up in Boston and was an avid fan and hence the decor of the place. Asking if he brought the Boston recipe  for the pizza with him, the clerk replied… There’s only one way to find out!

 

After giving it the taste test, Yup! It would have been better had my one slice come directly from the oven instead of sitting under a heat lamp. Sure beats the heck out of all the franchise pizza places on the west coast!

 

The below photos show the decor of the place…

USS Turner Joy – Bremerton, Washington

I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 17 miles from Fort Casey State Park to Oak Harbor, Washington. The motorhome is parked on Dock Street near the very friendly American Legion Post #129. They offered to let me park in the parking lot, but for a number I reasons I preferred parking here.

I’m currently in my 21st year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

Yesterday I drove the motorhome 8 miles from Fort Townsend State Park to the Jefferson County Fairground Campground. After six days of mostly cloudy skies and being parked under a huge tree prevented any sun from reaching my solar panels. With no electrical hookup, my coach batteries were really low despite running my generator for one hour each day. A 24 hour jolt of real electricity has brought them back to normal levels. I’ll depart here later this morning.
