Alright then...It's the first weekend after the big holiday Memorial Day weekend, so let's do a little compare and contrast, shall we? Thanks so much to Tyler, who sent in the photos below. He took them downtown, last weekend, in the Center Of It All. There were millions of people on the move last weekend, and we all know the City of Port Angeles has spent millions (and counting) on their dynamic new waterfront esplanade and Nathan's Artificial Buzzsaw Beach. So does it look like those millions ever came together? From the "action" in these photos, they look like they might as well have been taken at midnight, not high noon.
Plenty of seating available. No waiting!
At least the street signs were out and about...
Weeds, yes; people, no.
Expended: A million dollars and no sense.
Ah ha! At last! (Or is it at least?) The Memorial Day crowds!
So...If that was last weekend, a holiday weekend, with the JFFA in full swing, what does it look like this weekend downtown? Does it look like the enlightened leadership in City Hall has found the secret to success? Does it seem like the new, improved PADA is firing on all cylinders? Or, to put it in terms that the morons in charge there might (might) be able to understand, do these look like pictures of The Best Town Ever?
(Thanks again to Tyler for fighting the crowds to get these pictures.)
