Humuhumu’s description

The Newport Yacht Club isn't remotely tiki -- but it does have a pretty righteous tiki out front. This monster tiki stands about 12' high, and used to be in the backyard of someone who lived nearby. It was later donated to the neighborhood, and stands proudly on the lawn in front of the yacht club.
The tiki was carved out of what must have been one very large piece of wood; when viewed from the back, it appears it may have been carved from just one portion of a massive trunk. Markings at the base indicated that it was carved by "E. Marcus Westby, Lilliwaup, Washington, 1968." A bronze plaque at the base indicates it was donated by the David Bauer family.

I stopped to see this on a tiki tour of the Seattle area last spring....and promptly wondered why this was even posted on Critiki in the first place. There is nothing of tiki interest save for this one lone tiki. And I KNEW that going in. Ha!

Still, with Critiki as my tiki bible, I knew I had to stop and see it...and see EVERYTHING I could in the area. You can read about this place and other Seattle tiki spots I visited in my blog here:
