This morning we left Olympia and headed north toward Harstine Island. The sky was beautiful and the water was calm, and it only sprinkled a little bit during our cruise. Our original plan was to moor at McMicken Island on the east side of Harstine, but en route we decided we couldn't pass up a stop at Allyn, WA for one of Big Bubba's Burgers and to check out the George Kenny School of Chainsaw Carving, LLC (listed on Yelp under "Art Schools").
We docked at the city dock and walked the block into town and stopped first at Big Bubba's.
103-year old church across the street from Big Bubba's:
Big Bubba's is a walk-up, roadside burger stand (since 1966):
Happy Motoring Begins Here!
They have outdoor (covered and non-covered) seating in the way of picnic tables:
We tried today's special, the chipotle burger with bacon and roasted jalapenos and it was delicious!
Just down the road a bit on the same side of the street (you can't miss it) is the George Kenny School of Chainsaw Carving (and wine tasting, and martial arts):
Where the magic happens:
The yard is open to the public and you can wander at your leisure and check out the students' creations.
The start of an eagle:
Obligatory Sasquatch and Seahawks, because, Washington:
Campfire bears in the parking lot:
Allyn, WA turned out to be the perfect lunch stop.
Back to the boat!
Looking north from the dock:
Nice new Rocna on the bow:
Next stop: Jarrell Cove State Marine Park on Harstine Island!
