A Perfect Picnic at the Tacoma and Pierce County War Memorial Park

Peg and I were looking for a picnic somewhere. The original plan was to visit Jack Hyde Park in Old Town. Peg saw a good deal on walnuts at Grocery Outlet on North Pearl, which was in the opposite direction. We had delicious tuna salad sandwiches with pickled beets, red peppers, green onions, celery and Romaine lettuce. In our antique Dad’s Root Beer crate we also had some flavored water. To that we bought a couple bags of chips, and a miniature horseshoe game at Dollar Tree in University Place. On the way to the park Peg asked me to stop at the Swasey Branch of the Tacoma Public Library on Sixth Avenue. It’s never been open anytime we’ve stopped before, but we felt lucky. As we drove by it we saw a sandwich board declaring the library was open. The stars seemed aligned in our favor.
