Scurvy dawgs! Those two begin a gallery of more sights we want to share before Alki’s big Seafair Saturday is too much further away in the rear-view mirror – both community-contributed photos and a few more from our crews at the scene.

14 more photos ahead – including pirate portraits!

You’ll see the Pirates in West Seattle again during the WS Grand Parade on Saturday, July 20th – if not sooner.
