Today we ventured into Olympia, the capital of Washington and visited the state capitol building. We had a one hour guided tour and then headed out the back door and had a picnic at Capitol Lake Park.
Fact: While Tiffany's was struggling as a company in 1890, Washington State awarded them, as the lowest bidder, the contract for lighting the capitol. There are 429 Tiffany lamps and chandeliers in the capitol building, now worth many millions.
