Captain Vancouver Memorials

Speaking of photographs coming my way and honoring Captain Vancouver, my friend Amber lives on Vashon Island, and has also weathered the winter weather to take photos of the plaque on Vashon Island. I was not aware of this monument until she mentioned it to me at a Tacoma Waterfront Meeting.

Browns Point Lighthouse

Placed in the early 1900's near Everett
By the DAR Marcus Whitman Chapter
To honor the landing of Vancouver to take Possession
 of the waters and land for King George III,
June 4, 1792
























































This last one is a mystery for me. No one can tell me the location of this Memorial to Captain Vancouver.
I have tried making contact with the DAR chapter but have not gotten any responses. If anyone knows of this location, please contact me and don't forget to send me a photograph.

More on Vancouver Notch

Vancouver Notch, as I call it, is gaining support and photographs are coming my way, thanks to the members of Browns Point Lighthouse- Points Northeast Historical Society. Linda Van Nest has been sending me several and has given me permission to post them. The weather has not been cooperative, but every chance she gets on a weather break she is out on her deck overlooking Commencement Bay snapping her camera.

Take a look at these. I hope to get a season full of different views and Linda is doing a great job. Thank you Linda for your enthusiasm and your efforts.
