West Seattle scenes: Electric cars; food truck; eagle’s perch

June 11, 2012 at 11:37 am | In Seen around town, Seen at sea, West Seattle news | 4 Comments

Out and about the past few hours, here’s some of what we saw: Above, a group of parking spaces at Don Armeni marked as “no parking” for noon-5 pm today started filling up with shiny new Ford Focus electric cars – all bearing Michigan plates – so as two more were driven up, we asked the driver, “Commercial?” and he nodded. Right about that time, we found out via Twitter (hat tip, SeattleFoodTruck.com) that yet another food truck is testing the West Seattle waters:

That’s co-owner Kryse with the Happy Grillmore truck, parking in the Midas lot (4457 Fauntleroy Way SW) Mondays 11 am-2 pm starting today, specializing in burgers and fries, with two teriyaki burgers as today’s specials (veggie and salmon). Last but by no means least, a view from “Anchor Park” (the Duwamish Head lookout at the former site of Luna Park):

Couldn’t zoom in any further without a lens the size of the future Highway 99 tunnel – but even at a distance, you can’t mistake a bald eagle, this one with a great perch atop the navigational signage.


  1. Do the food trucks generally take cash only?

  2. I just came back from Happy Grillmore. Nice people and tasty teriyaki burger – ciabatta bun, pineapple, and some good greens on it. The price of $9 was a bit steep, though.

  4. I, of course, find out about the food truck at 2:30p… I’ll put it on the calendar for next Monday. Worth getting out of the house to make a lunch run!
