For me personally anything too romantic on a date like this one would be too much. It would feel like things were moving too fast.
i'm in the same situation. so as nov 10th approaches (day of our next "date") remind me of what you said in this post...
take I5 south to the steilacoom dupont exit, go west off the offramp (should be a right) then drive several miles thru the most beautiful forest you'll ever see. the trees cover the roadway, blocking out al the moonlight. that road will spit you out righ at the ferry dock. park, get out, gather some driftwood, check your pocket to make sure you brought your lighter...walk down to the beach, and light your campfire. you'll probably have a few lookie loo's checking you out. the ferry goes out to the prison on the island. you'll see the lights. may encounter a train rolling along the sound. it's pretty down there.
when you're done there on the beach, hike back to the car, hop in and drive north on steilacoom blvd. look for the cross street named "lakes blvd." when you cross that intersection you're almost there, you'll see an industrial looking building on your left. that's the "new" western state hospital (asylum). across the street (on your right) there's a big old field. it'll turn into a park, with softball fields visible at the intersection, take a right where the softball fields are, that'll take you to the entrance to the park where steilacoom lake is at, there are walking trails that lead up the hil to the "old" delapidated western state hospital is at. haunting! fun! where a kid can be a kid!
do me a favor. this is where my old girlfriend and i used to go. this is the girl that just recently "showed up" in my life after 26 years. i passed on any potential advances by her, no worries. anyway, one of "our" songs, play it for me: YouTube - Skid Row-I Remember You
she was such a romantic. she asked me to make a choice between her and my soon to be (at the time) first wife. i chose to go with my bride across the country to take my first radio gig. 26 years ago! Lane told me "if things don't work out, or even if they do, you'd better hire a detective and find me and let me know how you are." this was the only girl, other than my wife, that i ever loved
anyway,play it for lane miller, this one's for you. how things could've been. maybe something gets ignited for you two!
