Was in Aberdeen a few weeks ago, not much has changed I even think the same cars are still parked there. Since the collapse of the timber and salmon industries that part of the state has pretty much died, very sad.
Grays Harbor County - Suicide capital of America !
That is my home town. It was a great place to grow up then everything changed. I bought a pair of shoes a month ago in the third building on the left.
I think it was the era, Kim. I grew up in Kirkland. It was a wonderful
place to be a kid. Open fields, barns, RR tracks to explore. Miles and
miles of open space to ride our horses, bicycles, whatever ....
Now it is a paved-over hell hole of overpriced real estate and molding
condos. All the historic stuff got bulldozed and buried in boutiques and
delightful retail shopping opportunities. It's the American Way. Just look
at the above photos. Remove all the character and install a visual sh!t
sandwich and sell it to the drones as "progress". (insert puking icon here)
