Proposed Largest Lava Lamp, New Sundial

We stopped off to swim (or wade anyway) in the "healing" waters of Soap Lake and to find out the status on the "World's Largest Lava Lamp." We happened into a wonderful little liquor store on Main Street with an owner who has been in Soap Lake for over 10 years. He told us that the lava lamp is still in storage.

The town also just finished an interesting sculpture/sundial located by the beach area.
