746. Vancouver, Clark County (WA18)

This is a little different, but nice, no?  Art Deco but shaped in (faux) clay?  I’m not a fan of courthouses looking like office buildings, but this makes for quite a look. 

Everyone keeps mentioning Lewis and Clark around here!  I didn’t even know Shari Lewis and Dick Clark ever worked together!   When I originally conceived this joke, I had no idea that the two of them actually had worked together on an ancient game show I had never heard of, so take that for what it’s worth!  That they had episodes with Lionel Hampton is worth even more for me!

Considering I had spent the entire previous day on the road listening to the Beatles, I couldn’t refuse a cache called Yellow Submarine!  Its marketing is completely on point (as they say in the parlance of our times).  I don’t know what one has to do to get a submersible in their front yard, but I certainly felt it was worthy of one of my stingily hoarded favorite points.  I even left a new trackable I recently made, appropriately named Shark Attack

I decided to grab a second cache on the way out of town, a large travel bug hotel.  Why did it never occur to me to use a toolbox to make something like this?  And many thanks for leaving a light inside for passers-through in the night!  Heck, in appreciation for the work put into it, I gave it another of my stingily hoarded favorites.  Two in one county?  Who would have thunk it?  With that done, I set off again, passing back over the Columbia River for a third time, to claim one of the jewels of the trip…
