Couldn’t help but get a little more exercise, yesterday, and go out with a friend who is still looking for an orb.  Started around UPS walking around campus a bit, then headed to a small community garden near by.  After my friend went in first, I decided to take a look around while he finished searching.  I found a ‘message in a bottle’ hidden in the back.  Luck is on my side this year.  After that, we looked downtown for two hours or so, without luck.  Spoke to a guy who was hunting with his

February 14 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I think I found it around 6:30.  Keep looking, yesterday someone found an orb from the ‘year of the sheep’ cycle, planted last year.  There are more to be found.  Good luck,

February 14 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

The alarm just went off here in Spanaway. Will be up and out in a few! This will be the first time my fiancé has Gina searching so this will be fun!

February 14 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

On our way to hunt again! Found a few treasures Monday but no glass. My husbands says this is going to be a great Valentines adventure! We found a medallion the year of the snake, that year we got pregnant with our daughter. Maybe he has plans for another one!?!?! Off to Ruston with an umbrella!!

February 14 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I am going to continue looking.  I put a few items, but still have more as I didn’t get to put them all out.  I say, keep looking.  A glass orb or medallion is my goal too.  They’re so beautiful!

February 13 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I wish they would say if all of the orbs and medallions have been hidden. After walking 40 miles in the last 5 days and coming home with multiple stories of orbs beinging hand delivered to people not even aware of Monkeyshines and many near misses at repetitive locations I am feeling the love for the hunt fade away. This has been an amazing event in Tacoma for many years but this year the orbs and medallions seem so unobtainable. But who am I kidding I’ll be out tomorrow and probably Monday :)

February 13 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

We’ve been hunting nonstop since last Sunday. Nothing yet, we are taking a hot cocoa and coffee break than back at it. My 5yr old really wants to add an orb or medallion to his collection.

February 13 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Found a beautiful orange float at the NE Tacoma view point today! We searched all over the north end of tacoma, as we were heading home we decided to make one last stop! It was the best decision we could’ve made! There still out there if you’ve given up, get back out and explore. We started at 4am and found the float at 8am! Thank you Monkey’s we appreciate what you do and now have a ram and monkey float, which is the start of a beautiful collection!

We found one today! Down by the glass museum…. awesome! Thanks!

Thanks!!

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Has anyone found any glass at TCC? I know somebody found the flower pictures there.

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

We did leave some at Titlow. Yay!! I’m glad she had that good experience. :)

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

We can’t take credit for any of the ones I could find on Instagram—there must be at least three photographers putting things out. I don’t really understand Instagram anyway… is there a central location where you can view every pic that has been posted using it?

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

My friend found one!!! We were at titlow on Wednesday afternoon/evening with a friend and her kids…we went over to swing and she looked down….there it was!!! It was so cool to introduce her family to the experience and have them find a treasure!! Thank you!! :)

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Correction: we were at Gas Station Park

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I found two glass pieces, round, flatish and red near the Glass Museum this morning. Plus a stuffed monkey on our way back to the car! Keep looking!

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Check facebook or instagram with #monkeyshines2016 several of your framed photos have been found and posted!

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Check out #monkeyshines2016 on Instagram there have been photos and posts about them there.

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

What I wanted to say to you is what a great idea for all monkeyshiners going forward the help beautify our city.

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

What a beautiful morning to start my search!  I didn’t find any treasures, but I found some new little paths down by Foss Waterway that I’ve never noticed before.  Unfortunately, everything shiny or colorful hiding in the bushes turned out to be trash.  I have no art to share this year, but I’m going to bring garbage bags on the rest of my hunts and leave a cleaner trail behind me as my New Year’s gift to Tacoma.  Thank you Ms. Monkey and all of the other contributors who make this

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

And, just so you all know, we’re behind on the photos as this week has been a bit busy. We’ll catch up shortly.

We’ve been searching every day and found a few marbles—thank you!! 

Every place we go we leave original matted photographs in plastic sleeves and some places photo magnets too. We sure would appreciate hearing if anyone found any.

Thanks!!

February 12 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I will be hiding more than 100 items Friday night. So keep looking!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Found one too——-parking lot next to the firehouse in the Proctor district. This grandma and her tired legs THANK YOU. Still on the hunt for the magic globes. Went to Titlow beach and park, War memorial.

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

That may have been me. Two years ago(2014), found a year of the dragon orb. That one wasn’t even hidden in some super crazy spot either. Keep looking!
PS I haven’t found one this year and have spent probably close to 40 hours searching, logged over a hundred miles in driving and probably 30 miles of walking. Sure loving this city more and more and will be starting a blog/site dedicated to it soon!

Have fun!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

need help in how to post a picture—please.

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

YES!!!!!—Finally found something-a clay medallion-hanging from a bush in a parking lot next to the firehouse in Proctor district. I had all but given up, heading back to the car and there it was just smiling at me——-thank you!!!!!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

The monkeyshines are (still) out there.  I found a multicolor monkey medallion after work today around 5:15 PM at Brown’s Point. Keep searching!
Thank you monkeys for a great week that started at 5 AM Monday morning. I walked at least 20 miles total on my search.  The Monkeyshines event is a great reminder to Step. Away. From. The. Office. (in my case, the school counseling office) and get out to enjoy life, the outdoors, exercise, my family and magic. Everyday this week felt like Friday!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

For the most fun, instead of hunting, I’m hiding; 40 little pieces in the next two days. Keep looking!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I’ll be out with my kids hunting early Saturday morn!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

What no bike share??  How could this be??

February 11 2016 What Makes a Place Livable?

Isn’t it obvious that the one thing Tacoma is lacking that would make Tacoma a livable city, like Seattle, is a bike share program.  How could this be?  http://www.prontocycleshare.com/

February 11 2016 What Makes a Place Livable?

Has anyone found any Octopus orbs? Haven’t seen any posts of anyone finding any. Went out for 5 hours this morning and found a very pretty ceramic bowl at my first stop then nothing at any of the 7 parks I visited. Not many hunters out either in the rain. Marbleman do you make your own marbles, they are beautiful. Thanks to all the artists and volunteers who put in countless hours making, planning, distributing all these pieces of art. Greatful.

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

All I seem to find are cigarette butts, gum and garbage.

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

How do I post a picture or email one?

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

We’re still making our nets all over town through the week, maybe the weekend.  Come find us!

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I think there are always treasures left undiscovered every year—haven’t heard stories this year but in the past, folks have sometimes found monkeyshines in obscure places or very well hidden that date from previous years. The guy who found a Year of the Dragon orb years later on the tideflats comes to mind. The search is never over but don’t get frustrated if you don’t find anything. Just be ecstatic if you do.

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

The hunt got off to a horrible start.  Pre-tested flashlight with new batteries died Monday morning before I even got started.  Broke a toe stepping over my dog who flopped in the middle of the hall after searching Monday.  Tuesday I decided I could wear my new sneakers rather than my mud shoes - yeah ran into a ton of mud.  But my dog is enjoying the walks - its his first year hunting.  He has separation anxiety since my other dog passed in May.  So we went by the glass museum this morning

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

If you can believe Naughty Monkey’s tweets (and sometimes you can’t but this one I believe) then there is still a lot of hunting to be done.

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

This is my first year at this and its been so much fun!  I’m already thinking about what I can contribute next year as a rogue monkey!  Still searching for my first find.  Is the search pretty much over for this year?

February 11 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Another successful year hunting monkeyshines!  We had all but given up finding an orb this year but my husband persisted & after about 2 hours on day 3 of looking, he found a beautiful yellow orb tucked away in an uprooted tree down at the Chinese reconciliation park this morning. Thank you Ms. Monkey & friends for making this such a special event to look forward to every year!

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Sorry for the late post but I found this beautiful monkeyshines floating in a pot at Reconciliation Park late Monday night(10:30). Thanks Ms. Monkey and everybody else that makes this great event possible, it truly is one of the most fun times of the year in Tacoma.

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Found a marble finally!! So excited.. missed an orb but am happy to know they are still put there!! Thank you Marble Man!!

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Monkey balls and marbles have been known to find each other.

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

just a picture test. trying to figure out how to post one myself.

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

yeah but it didn’t work. may try again.

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Weve seen lots of items ...AND there are all sorts of items still located or rehidden in spots where one would assume they are already gone. Soooo tricky :)

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Please no imports from Seattle.  Let’s build up the the businesses and aspiring business folks here in our community! I’ve been to Rein Haus in Seattle, not a good look for Tacoma, believe me.  Next thing you know they’ll be an Amazon building in Tacoma too, ew.

February 10 2016 German Beer Hall Coming to Stadium District

Hey Marbleman-Was there supposed to be an imaged in your last post?

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

That’s really awesome that others outside our area contribute to the cause. I found 2 small marbles from you that were my first finds ever! Thanks for all you do.

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Octopus recovered from a tree on the North side of Wright park. I took my sister and nephew out on the hunt and she had a hunch about a particular tree. Come to find out an octopus had made it his home. Thanks for being awesome Tacoma!

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Found a marble today!!! Thank you! My first find :D

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Where did you find it? we went last night around 730 and found some marbles but no orbs. I played a little queen of the boulder and still no luck!

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Hi Anxious Hunter. No I don’t make the marbles. the larger art glass ones we had this year were donated by a well known glass artist and friend from CA that generously donated 2 doz for our special Tacoma Monkeyshines fun!  We also got donations ‘for the cause’ from as far away as New England and as close as eastern WA. :-)

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Found an awesome yellow orb at the waterfront Chinese Reconciliation Park at around 6am this morning, I’m thinking it was placed there Monday, it was well hidden! Another great year, thank you Ms. Monkey, Marbleman, and friends!!!

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I’m not sure if things are still being hidden but I’ll be out looking as well. Have fun !

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Going to head out this morning around 5 to look for the first time! Anyone have any idea if things are still being hidden.. and if it’s still “worth” it?

Thanks!

February 10 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Thank you for the hint!  Although we found a cracked one, we will take it!  We searched for hours to find another, but many must have been there before we got there.  Nonetheless, a great find!  We left some treasures around for other collectors to find.  We cannot wait for next year. Thank you all you crazy monkeys!!!!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Thank you for the seed pod found at Wright park——it will look great in this grandma’s garden. I thought I would never find anything—-frustration to the max—-been to: Fireman’s park, South park, Wapato, Pagoda at Pt Defiance, Tacoma Chinese park, War memorial park, theater district…... what am I missing?????? Are you still putting them out? At least it was a beautiful day and we met some very nice people.

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Nothing today. Searched all over UWT campus. Across the museum fronts, the glass bridge, waterfront. Planning to come out maybe tomorrow morning in hopes of finding something! Want to try and hit Wright Park also. Any other suggestions on places to look?

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Went out looking for a bit today. Found many small treasures including a seed bomb! So excited for that. Found another at Wright Park in the giving statue but left that alone for someonw else to find :)

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I didn’t know the glass bottles were part of monkeyshines!  I saw one yesterday on our adventure!  I hope to get back out after work.

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I found one!  Thank you!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

It’s dead and the county is figuring out whether to eventually come up with a revised proposal for a new (or re-modeled) building at the Puget Sound Hospital site or somewhere else.  Don’t expect any real movement until there’s a new county exec.

February 09 2016 Tacoma Mall Neighborhood Plan Enters New Phase

Speaking of the Lincoln district - what is the status of the new Piece county office building.  Just googled it and the only story I found was from feb 2015 saying it was approved.  Don’t want to hijack the thread but it’s nearby.  Anyone?

February 09 2016 Tacoma Mall Neighborhood Plan Enters New Phase

Huge thanks to Ms. Monkey, all the other artists, volunteers, the new converts and contributors, for all your hard work keeping this wonderful tradition alive. This is one of my favorite times of year in Tacoma - meeting new people, exploring the city with keen eyes, and feeling the community enthusiasm and pride. Long live Monkeyshines!! Happy Lunar New Year to all!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Thanks, Beyou 74, for my beautiful magnet, and for your generosity-Monkeyshines is awesome!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

While at Wright Park on Monday morning 2 gals told us about “Monkey Shines”. We have since found 2 clay “sunflower bombs” to plant. I just LOVE the birds around my home and can’t wait to grow the sunflowers for them. I’m very excited but not near as excited as the girls who came running up to us at Gas Works Park, later that day, to tell us they had just hidden some “Monkey Shines” somewhere in the park! It was just darling!
Thank you MsMonkey and Tacoma for all the brightness you bring to us

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Personally, I take the “only take one” rule to heart.  One Monkeyshine (whichever variety it is), leave or re-hide the others - it spreads the joy of finding the shines out to many people over many days (weeks…months….years?)  Just my personal interpretation :)  Happy Shining!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I love the idea of leaving something. I’m planning to leave some UW stuff… Go huskies!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Out yesterday and today. Saw a couple small treasures but no balls or medallion’s. walked 10 miles went to several parks, talked to other searchers. Maybe next year I’ll have better luck.

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Thanks to all of you who have taken up the tradition and started adding your own monkeyshines! I spotted quite a few of them around town yesterday, including a beautiful photo of the Tacoma waterfront; silk flowers; a “Dream Big” stone; and a “Celebration of the Monkey” medallion (left them for others to find since I found a glass medallion.) A friend and I went out this morning to make our own contribution, and I feel so inspired by you all now to make something next year to hide. Thanks to

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Any chance the unfound monkey ball is within reasonable walking distance of TPU? It’s my only chance!

Have any folks found glass in this area?

Cheers!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

After almost 7 hours of morning searching, I had to take a break. I visited what feels like every single park in Tacoma, and yet, you found so much so easily! Please teach me your ways :(

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I have found an orb for the past 9 years, this year I decided to take part and made glass magnets to hide, I’m so glad you found one!!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

What a beautiful morning! We found this lovely flower and two others, which we left. Made our morning. :-) spotted a beautiful unfound monkey ball. Yes they’re still out there. Saw some other things, left some marbles and had a great morning. Thanks again to whoever left the flower.

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

My daughter found a marble this morning at Baltimore Park!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I’m heading out this afternoon near UW Tacoma. This will be my first time ever looking! I’m excited and hoping to find something

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

We so hope to find one this year!! Still searching :)

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Same here! I’ve been out since around 4, and haven’t found anything. Disappointing, but I’m not giving up!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Out since 4:30am.. nothing. Anyone have any hint?? Next stop downtown

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Tacoma has so many problems and obvious solutions that it’s fun to armchair imagineer what could be.  So, I’ll go ahead and troll away at this one…

I would take the mall completely out.  I would build a new mall on the corner of Hwy 512 and I-5 where the gravel pit is.  I would control this, as a city, by making a deal with the current mall owner to make better freeway, taxing, and development plans with the owners to get their buy-in… at the nexus of Tacoma, Lakewood, and Puyallup.

I would

Out early this morning, nothing in Wapato, then found a small glass magnet in a planter on 38th street in the International District—so excited, my first-ever—thanks, Ms. Monkey and friends! Later, breakfasting at the Hob Nob, our waitperson asked why we were out so early—she’d never heard about Monkeyshines, and when we explained, she said, “Oh, that must be what one of my customers left for a tip yesterday,” and brought out a beautiful multicolored medallion and a postcard—said she thought it

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Walked around titlow this morning around 6 am with no accord to finding anything. Oh well that pup had a good time and it woke us up.

February 09 2016 Thanks, Ms. Monkey - UPDATED

we will be out today! not quite done yet! :-)

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

hi,  correct ,only one of the official monkeyshines. the other treasures, I can only speak for the marbles. On those you can take however many you find. we put them out for people to enjoy and have fun with is all. Happy hunting!

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Anyone out this morning? Any luck?

February 09 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Such a fun early day! Me and my fiance headed out at 330 and started at the Rialto, then covered most of the historic area down to Fireman’s park (finding nothing). We did some drivebys of several places, then I decided it might be a good idea to check over by the Museum of Glass. My suspicions were rewarded! I spotted this on the bridge that exits from the museum! (I was like “is this even happening right now?!!”) We even met some other fellow searchers who were absolutely ECSTATIC for our

February 08 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

I hear that the Tacoma mall got surprised tonite by mall monkeys. Wild on the loose I heard.  As we watched our wild monkeys go and leave lots of treasures all AROUND the mall.  But once we wrangled all wild monkeys and took them home.  We realized we left ALL the monkey treasures still hidden for some special visitors. So go monkey around the mall stay safe.

February 08 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

Great day! Thanks monkeys. What a wonderful bonding experience. A monkey placed a medallian on our car…crazy! We found it when we got home. Great great time.

February 08 2016 Monkeyshines 2016 - The Year of the Monkey

With so many people now contributing treasures to the Chinese new year tradition in Tacoma, what’s the rule for how many treasures to take? I was always told to only take one monkeyshine. Unless that rule doesn’t apply to other treasures. Just curious.
