  • U.S. Open 2015 Chambers Bay, Washington, Tacoma been there!!!!!!

    Well, it is here, the first US Open golf course that I have seen. If you look across the water to a large patch of trees. That is an island. Fox island. I have spent weekends above the far left, where there is a white cliff. Above that cliff was the house.

    FOX sports first broadcast ever of the US open and first time that golf is played into prime time, 2-8 pm over the sun dappled Puget Sound.

      Gray sand, though must be treated, because the small gray shoreline on the Sound, well, it is out right gooey. Check out Fox island clay babies, I have one shaped like mickey mouse heard, perfect shape. Wish this old man had a camera!!!!

        amtrak cascades in the opening sequence, been on that train many times to Tacoma, the huge city just over the hill of the north. Course is not flat, by layered, like a wedding cake. And that train track, that is it, the HWY 101 of the railroads, only one track leaves Disneyland and arrives at Canada.

            when those clouds part, Mt Rainer will appear, depending on the pollution level, huge Volcano towering over the sound. And when they span over the water to the far distance, the Olympics, subject of Disney true life adventure film.

              temperature drop of 15 degrees, so goes the huge system out in the Pacific ocean, that will rotate counter clock wise with the clouds currently above my house in the south to over the famous Windsor hotel in BC in the north. High tee it is!!!!!

                not sure if those are the Olympics to the west, very much looks like it, Saturday should tell as the front pulls out Friday night.

                  Golf. Never had much interest in it. Played the mini variety with the grandson. Even tried the regular kind, and I was horrid. My nephew won a golf scholarship that helped pay for his college education. Nowadays they have scholarships for everything.

                    ...well I imagine that the course will receive criticism for being a min golf course, lots of loops and hills and deep bunkers.....oh...they just said it about the greens.

                      if the sound is to your right, that is south, if the sound is to your left, that is north, water is west.

                                Day three begins and gritting US open continues. The freight train, the concrete gridded walls, gray sand from the Puget Sound, the majestic Mt. Rainer....where else in the United States???

                                        The rhythm of the train, casting shadows of light on the spectator walking fence, the sun setting brightly on the United States of America.
