Seahawk Fan Fest – Oh My Goodness!
So this is what we accidently landed into…the Seahawk Fan Fest and 2015 Season Kick-off Celebration. Yep, they be EVERYWHERE….Seahawk Fans. SWARMS of them!!!!
Yes, we ran into this guy last night….not sure about her, maybe that’s why Marcia kept saying, “Look over there” and points to nothing…I say, “What, what is it?”…and she replies, “Oh, nothing dear”…Marcia probably saw this gal coming the other way and didn’t want my eyes to wander. (NOTE: SF 3 SEA 0 on scoreboard )
We did go into town and got our laundry done, and had lunch at a real good Mexican Restaurant called Las Maracas Mexican Restaurant. The food was real, real good. Marcia had a Seafood Chile Relleno, I had a Burrito, Enchilada Plate with a side of Tamale (because we both wanted to try a Tamale). We brought food home, so that made room for desert…a Sopapilla. So now we are stuffed from last night and today’s lunch.
While driving around town we kept running into Seahawk this and Seahawk that. There was SO MUCH going on. From this advertisement of the weekend we now know why…this is probably the biggest Seahawk event in the state!
So they have these flags all over the place…in the Casino, all over town, and our neighbor has one on his motorhome (as do a few others). It finally dawned on me what they were for….you see, the Seahawks can only count to ten as long as someone gives them a hint for the first two numbers. So they have these flags with a “one” and a “two” and from there the average Seahawk fan is on their own to get up to ten. (you know what they say about payback)
The casino asks all the RVers to park in this gravel, dusty area…...and most do. The have very wide lines, we can almost get the slide out, and the car parked next to it all within the lines. After coming back from laundry I parked like this to make it easier to get the clothes inside. Our immediate neighbor has no slide, so there is plenty of room….and when we got here, there was NO ONE near us…five empty spots each way.
THEY all came to park by us, with many empty spaces to park elsewhere…but this area is one of the more level areas, so I totally understand. (wish I had a 49er flag).
I wonder how full this place would be on a regular weekend?
Just our luck to come on a Seahawk weekend, at least it ended with a descent sunset…tomorrow we move on south.
