The next town north of us (in Mukilteo) is the town of Everett. It was a big lumber town in the past and has the nickname of “Mill Town”. There is a trail that goes by the waterfront named Mill Town Trail. I will do a ride along there to share in a post sometime in the future.
Today is Outdoor Art day on the way to and from a visit with a friend at the cancer center for her chemo treatment. I met up with Cindy, my number one ace riding buddy, at mid morning while there was still a chill in the air and we took off for the adventure.
First art photo is of what appear to represent birds and fish. One (maybe both) is in a “traditional” Native American motif as that is very prevalent in the area. (There is an unintentional reflectie of Cindy in one of them ;’-)).
These two pieces are a few blocks apart on a corner of the main street and a side street. In between we find a boy and his dog watching the girls dancing.
Around the corner is our theatre which has some art nearby as well. The wall is very hard to capture as it is rather long and curves around. The three seated chair is interesting, and the dancing actor adds character.
This dancer is a remembrance of a real person who taught dance in his own studio in Everett for years.
One more stop on the the way to the cancer center shows us an appropriate heart for our visit.
We had a nice and meaningful visit with our friend, and would ride our return on a slightly different route to collect yet more outdoor art.
A rather interesting and artful way to camouflage a city utility box.
Not far from the library we find pencils.
As I was taking the photo of the pencils we looked down at the pavement and found this plaque imbedded in the sidewalk. It was difficult to determine what it was at first, and you had to move around to get the right perspective of it. There is no explanation of who this is supposed to be.
We had one more stop I wanted to do, and that was at the Children’s Museum.
I would wish everyone a cycling buddy like Cindy! She helps me find all my bicycling challenges (and I seem to do a lot of them), never minds stopping for me to take photos and investigate, and as well, is the best friend to ride with for no other reason than to ride.
