West Seattle scenes: Busy day on the beach

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:

Here’s a Luna Park photo from the Seattle Municipal Archives:

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

    Me kwa mooks, you kwa mooks, they kwa mooks.

    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”.

      No fun-making re: Finns here; my co-publisher/husband is half Finnish. – TR

    @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.

    Tomorrow’s isn’t just the lowest of the month. It’s the lowest of the year!

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