On Thursday night, standup paddleboarders went out on the Magical Moonlight Paddle with Alki Kayak Tours (WSB sponsor). Tonight, it’s kayakers’ turn. Last night, WSB contributing photojournalist Nick Adams went out for the views from, and off, Seacrest – including the moon/plane view featured here earlier today – ahead, more of what he saw:

Before the group headed out, a chat on shore – and then, off into Elliott Bay, equipped with lights:

The dusk had its own beauty:

As the moon rose higher and cast its light on the water, with the fishing pier as one backdrop, the paddleboarders themselves became part of the scenery:

In the distance, the Seattle Great Wheel took on Seahawks blue-and-green, since the football team was playing a home game:

Look from another angle, and the port cranes stand out too:

The industrial lighting mingled with the moonlight on the water’s surface:

Then all too soon, it was time for the paddleboarders to return to shore:

If you’re interested in tonight’s kayak tour, you can book here – or find out more about other tours, including AKT’s BOGO weekday deals.

  2. I looked that up before mentioning and that’s what the sources I found said too – just as it was setting (I was coming home from photographing the SSV ramp). So it wasn’t QUITE full when Nick was out late last night, and it’s a tiny bit on the wane tonight. Clouds moving in so I hope they get some patches of clear sky tonight like the paddlers did last night! – TR
