This sounds like it would be fun :) Assuming family doesn't do anything drastic between now and then, I'd love to show up for this.

Matt, greetings! We're looking to our Olympia "members" Kris, Jamie and Marlene to land in a good meetup place, but any and every idea is welcome.

Jamie and I were thinking it might be nice to meet up around Capitol Lake. There are some parking spots right next to the park around the lake (on the downtown side of the lake) that are a few blocks outside of the hubbub of downtown, so parking should be easily available (I think). Another idea I had was Sylvester Park, which is a little one-block park right next to the old capitol building (now the OSPI building), but being able to all park close together might be a bit harder there. We think Capitol Lake is probably the best idea. The parking area I was thinking of is around the intersection of Water St SW and 7th Ave SW, which is basically a little parking lot. Also, public/metered spots are free on Saturday in Olympia.

If we do end up meeting here, everything we'd probably want to walk to and photograph would be somewhat close by (a few block away, for most of it).

If it looks good to you guys it's fine by me!

It's an easy to find lot too for the most part. It's either that or the parking lot behind Les Schwab by the boardwalk which is a tad larger I think. 6 or 1/2 dozen the other. Everything's really walking distance from there for the most part.

Parking is super easy either place we decide. I vote for the lot by capital lake. Lets just hope the weather holds out for us. Cross your fingers.

That lot didn't occur to me, since I've never driven into it (although I've walked by it on the boardwalk many times). Either lot is fine by me, although I think the Capitol Lake Park "lot" might be a little more central, as far as walking up to the capitol campus at least. But if we're going to walk all over town, including the farmers market, then any place will work fine. We don't necessarily all have to park in the same place either, but it would certainly make meeting up easier.

Sounds like plans are really firming up - my wife is planning to tag along at this point too.

We have several new people from Oly chiming in for this and Aaron is back from Mexico, so this is shaping up to be a real good bunch!
