2005 MS Walk
Thanks to the generous help of many friends,
we were able to make a donation of $501 to the National MS Society this year!
Tacoma's Point Defiance Park is a beautiful place full of fruit blossoms and majestic old trees. It was a gorgeous day, and lots of folks spent the hour before the walk registering and milling around the various displays.

|The crowd started off with a good stretch.|
|There were clowns and mascots and other demi-persons in attendance. This allegedly added to a festive atmosphere.|
|The ribbon was cut and the crowd surged down the garden path. That's the lovely Japanese Pagoda in the background.|

|Again this year, we encountered Klingons. That's our friend Gary on the left. In the larger image you will see Deb on the right and the Klingon in the middle.|
|If you have not been to Tacoma lately you may be surprised to see a new bridge going up next to the venerable Narrows Bridge. We got a good view of the construction from a vantage point in the park.|
|Here's a great idea, for which someone should be congratulated. At the end of the course we were greeted by a line of high-fiving Brownies! They were very enthusiastic and gave each walker a congratulatory whoop.|
|The Brownies give Deb her props. That's it for this year! Thanks everybody!|
