And remember that the state is interested in your photos from the high tides – add them to this Flickr group (and if they’re from West Seattle, we’d love to see them in the WSB Flickr group, too!).

  1. Does anyone know of some good streets with christmas lights? I was thinking of taking the kids for a drive around west seattle tonight. Beach drive is a given.

  2. Wsea – we are launching our Christmas light coverage tonight and have finally gotten some tips besides the ones we’ve seen.
    For starters – go to the neighborhoods closest to West Seattle Lights – off Charlestown, east of California – it’s a Candy Cane Lane.
    Second – the stub of Fauntleroy alongside the West Seattle Bridge’s Fauntleroy end – reach it with a turn eastward off 35th north of Fauntleroy – several bright homes there.
    And Rhonda from Beach Drive Blog is tracking homes on Beach Drive (Menashes – 5600 block of Beach Drive – included, of course) – I’ve seen at least two posts at BDB: http://beachdriveblog.com
