Chinese Reconciliation  Park, Tacoma, Washington

I drove into Tacoma today while staying with a friend in Bremerton. Towards the end of my visit, I went to a small park that was built to make some me degree of amends for the poor treatment Chinese immigrants to the US suffered in the late 19th century. The park is located near the northern tip of a small peninsula. It was a pleasant place to spend a bit of time. There is a Chinese temple donated by Seattle's sister city of Fuzhou, PRC.

This panorama is a bit misleading, as the water should be the focus. After my two trips to San Carlos, Mexico, this summer, I have an increased interest in bays.

I enjoyed the small conservatory in Tacoma and the once-dazzling downtown under renovation. There are some impressive buildings that stand on the steep staggered slope down into the water.
