This week's theme is "ARCHITECTURE".
For today's Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt, I'm postin' a photo of a place that is near and dear to Mom's heart ... a place from her childhood that she'd visit every summer when her family would make their August trip to Washington State to visit her grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. This is my photo of "ARCHITECTURE".
Just outside of the town where Mom was born is a small lake tailor-made for learnin' to swim, searching for salamanders, or fishin' for a few small fish: Aberdeen Lake.
Since Mom's last visit to Washington was a brief 47 hours, she didn't get to visit this lake herself ... So our grandma and grandad took this photo when they were in the Pacific Northwest on their last trip. They mentioned that the lake itself looks much the same, but the surrounding area is being upgraded. The day that they were there, the lake was nearly deserted ... It was always noisy and crowded when Mom was a kid. They took a picture of this bridge ... and took some time to reflect on the changes.
