Back from the holiday weekend? Or, still relaxing? Whichever’s the case for you, there’s a calendar highlight of potential interest on today’s list:
LOW TIDE, WITH BEACH NATURALISTS: Low tide at 10:46 am today is down to -1.5 and brings the debut of this year’s Seattle Aquarium volunteer beach naturalists schedule. South of Alki Point and on the beach at Lincoln Park near Colman Pool, you’ll find naturalists to help you knowledgeably and carefully explore the shore, 9:30 am until 12:30 pm today (see our calendar listing for other upcoming dates, including tomorrow, when low tide will be even lower).
HIGHLAND PARK SPRAYPARK: Not that we’re expecting mega-warm temps today, but as we saw on Saturday, you don’t need mega-warm temps for kids to get excited about playing in the water. So we’re reminding you that Highland Park Spraypark is now open daily 11 am-8 pm until September 1st. (1100 SW Cloverdale)
BABY STORY TIME: 11:30 am, from newborns to year-olds, wee ones are welcome at Southwest Library – it’s a story time just for them. (35th/Henderson)
FIGHTING AUTO THEFT: What’s the Seattle Police plan to fight auto theft? Hear directly from SPD – and ask your questions – at tonight’s West Seattle Block Watch Captains’ Network meeting, 6:30 pm at the Southwest Precinct. You don’t have to be part of a Block Watch to attend – all welcome. (Webster/Delridge)
LIVE MUSIC: From 5:30 pm at Salty’s on Alki (WSB sponsor) with Justin Kausal-Hayes, to 9 pm with Shadowland‘s singer-songwriter showcase, and other venues along the way, lots of music tonight – see the listings on our calendar!
