West Seattle weekend scene: Alki outriggers, from above

July 31, 2011 at 12:51 am | In Seen at sea, West Seattle beaches, West Seattle news | 5 Comments

Another incredible West Seattle aerial view from Gatewood pilot/photographer Long B. Nguyen – this time, over the Seattle Outrigger Canoe Club‘s “Da Grind” racing event during the low-tide Saturday on Alki (our earlier ground coverage is here). Here’s another view – another low tide today, by the way, -2.0 just before noon.

  1. That’s a cool view. With the super blue color of Puget Sound, Alki almost looks like a Hawaiian beach.

  3. How interesting! We were out on those little islands caused by the low tide and the water didn’t look anything like that from the ground, it just looked murky. Such a beautiful scene from the sky.
