Bair Drug in Steilacoom

October's 3rd Wednesday sketch outing was at the historic Bair Drug in Steilacoom.  It's now a charming restaurant but the original Bair Drug and Hardware Store was built in 1895.  It's also a Living Museum, with the walls full of artifacts from the turn of the 20th century (1900). 



Though there are so many interesting sketch opportunities in the shop, it was such a nice day I decided to sketch outside.  The old clock across the street caught my eye.  A clock also seemed appropriate as this is "Back to the Future" day.



With only a few minutes remaining, I walked down to Pioneer Orchard Park for a view of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in the distance, across Puget Sound. 


 
We shared our sketches but didn't gather for a group photo.  A few of us enjoyed a delicious lunch there at Bair Drug.
