The Fat Smitty.......

8:08 am - Wednesday - September 9th - Blyn, WA - 53° F, 75% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the south.....clear, blue skies today with a forecast high of 78° F.  On this day in 2014 we watched the sunset at Cape Blanco, OR......↴

After watching the entirety of Stage 10 of Le Tour Tuesday morning we got dressed and drove into Sequim (Squim) to visit the local COSTCO where my cholesterol prescription was awaiting my arrival since Friday.  It's only about 7.5 miles from the casino, and we were there within 10 minutes.  Normally it is difficult to find parking close to any COSTCO entrance, but on this day we scored a parking spot quite close.  While I headed to the pharmacy to get my prescription TLE began to shop.  Once again, there was no waiting line at the pharmacy prescription pickup desk, and I was in and out in a couple of minutes.  I found TLE pretty quickly, and within another few minutes she was finished shopping so we went to checkout where we encountered a checkout line as long as we have ever seen at a COSTCO.....easy to get in, but did it ever take along time to get out!

By the time we made it back to the VW it was closing in on 12 pm, and time to look for a place to get lunch.  Many of the places we wanted to eat at were closed on Tuesdays, but we found a hamburger place called Fat Smitty's back at the intersection of US-101 and SR-20.  I had noticed this place as we drove by on Sunday, and was impressed by the long lines of people waiting to get their orders......long lines are usually a good sign the food is good, right?  It is the kind of funky place we like.......

.....all of the figures in this picture were carved out of large trees with a chain saw......very impressive!  I ordered their world famous 'Fat Smitty's Bacon Cheeseburger'..... is a double decker, quite a mouthful, and very decadent!  On top of all that we got to eat our meals alfresco....for some reason the smoke from the forest fires was not that bad at Smitty's.  The interior of Fat Smitty's is even more funky than the exterior......

.....every square inch of the interior walls and ceilings are covered with $1 bills left by customers over the years!  Like I said, this place definitely has the 'funk' factor working for it big time.

We were home by 2 pm, and relaxing and reading shortly thereafter for the rest of the afternoon.  We opted to have no dinner as both of us were still quite full from lunch.  There was still a lot of smoke in the sky all afternoon, so being outside for any period of time was not in the cards.  Finally by 5 pm the skies began to clear somewhat so I continued my relaxing and reading outside for another couple of hours.

On Wednesday we will continue our trek westward toward the Pacific Ocean, hoping to arrive at our winter location by next Tuesday.....thanks for stopping by!

  1. Awesome! Fat Smitty's.....we used to eat there often when we lived over that way many years ago, but have to say we haven't eaten there in many years. It's always been an interesting place. Glad you enjoyed it.
