Percivals Landing. Olympia ~ Port protests escalate


Alec and I walk at Percivals Landing in downtown Olympia at the botton of Puget Sound. Here are some flowers in a planter there yesterday.

We had heard there had been protesters there the night before, because of the ship there ~ the SS Pomeroy ~ being loaded and heading for Iraq.

The SS Pomery

We saw a couple of protesters and one Sherrifs Deputy vehicle watching them but it was pretty quiet. More protesters were there that night.
