Water Feature

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

What? Another fountain after last night's post? I didn't think you'd mind. Here we are in the Capitol city of Olympia and I haven't really posted much from the Capitol Campus. Tonight after dinner I took a drive there. As you can see the sun was starting to set so I tried to fit in as many shots as I could. This beautiful fountain is a replica of "The Tivoli Fountain" in Tivoli Park in Copenhagen Denmark. It was presented to The State of Washington by The Olympia-Tumwater Foundation in 1953 by then foundation President Peter G. Schmidt. The fountain is surrounded by benches and grass. It is a popular place this time of year for people in the area to take their lunch.

    This is a beautiful fountain and perfect timing. It's too bad about that fence - I can imagine jumping into this one!

  8. Jacob: As you can see, I was running out of time quickly. Thank you.

    tapirgal: As warm as it was up here this afternoon, it would have felt pretty good!
