Luckie shares that photo from the beach at Constellation Park south of Alki Point, the most popular tidewalking spot during this morning’s low-low tide – we drove by around noon and noted school buses from Mercer Island, Issaquah, and Seattle districts. (Further south, we noted a Highline bus across from Me-Kwa-Mooks.) On West Seattle’s north-facing shore, we stopped for a look at the stubs of pilings where the Luna Park amusement park stood a century ago:

Tomorrow’s low-low tide is the lowest of the month, -3.8 just after noon.

    Thank you for the opportunity to say this. I have always wanted to. My apologies to any native Salish speakers. Feel free to make fun of my name, which in Finnish means “Awkward Donut Maker”.

  5. @WSB, I am sorry but, if half of your husband is Finnish, does that mean the other half is not done? I’m sorry again.

  7. The historic photo of Luna Park is great. I cannot imagine how different life was here at Duwamish Head compared to now.
