Olympia’s Harbor Days is held Labor Day Weekend (Friday evening through Sunday) and is always fun. My favorite part is seeing all the vintage tugboats, several of which were available for tour. My least favorite part was when the largest tug sounded its horn right next to me and almost gave me a heart attack! But is was funny later 🙂 There was some great entertainment including music and a juggler. More information can be found here.
Gray Lumber Company has a logistics center at 3902 South ‘M’ Street in Tacoma. Some version of this facility has been in place since 1903. Grays is Tacoma’s oldest lumber yard. They really have an interesting history, important to Tacoma. It can be found on their website.
