    Near the entrance to the park is this windmill. It is nearly 50’ feet (15 m) tall and was built in the early 1900’s. Is sits on the edge of the Marymoor slough and has always been one of my favorite things to see.

    In Marymoor park along the main road there is a climbing rock. It is 45 feet (13 m) high and is open to the public for no cost. It has relatively easy routs (5.5) and goes up to a difficult (5.12) rout. Most people use it for bouldering (without ropes) but is equipped for lead rope climbing as well.

    This is one of those good, non-Americanized Thai restaurants. So many of the Thai restaurants in the Seattle/Bellevue/Redmond area are "fancy" and Americanized. Great lunch specials!

    Favorite Dish: Phad See Ew - I'm a whimp. Don't like the spicy dishes. But my friends who do say they're good, too.

Redmond Shopping

    Redmond Town Center (RTC) is a California-style shopping mall - where the entrance to most of the stores is outdoors.

    The shops themselves are pretty standard: Eddie Bauer, Starbucks, one of those big, chain bookstores, etc.

    You can also dine at one of the restaurants at RTC. There is a Thai restaurant that is pretty good, and a decent, although high-priced retro diner. I would NOT recommend the sub shop on the 2nd level, near the parking structure.

    RTC also has a movie theater.

Redmond Local Customs

    In the early 1900's Redmond was a logging town. Barroom brawls were an everyday occurrence. When prohibition was passed in 1919 it didn't really stop the drinking that occurred, because Redmond was a small town and it would have been difficult to enforce the rules.
    One of the more interesting stories that I have heard was about the union troubles. In 1913 the loggers were on strike and some of the angry workers decided that they would blow up a locomotive near the Campbell Mill. It just shows that in those times things weren’t as strict.
