First, enjoy a very warm summer Sunday; then watch for the supermoonrise tonight. From the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar, some options for what you could do along the way:

HIGHLAND PARK RUMMAGE SALE: Second and final day of the summertime edition of the Highland Park Improvement Club megasale, 9 am-2 pm. (12th/Holden)

LOW-LOW TIDE: This month’s lowest low tide, -2.3, happens at 11:03 am; at Constellation and Lincoln Parks from 10:30 am-1:30 pm, it’s your second-to-last chance this summer to confer with volunteer beach naturalists as you explore the shore.

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm as always! (44th/Alaska)

(added) CAR WASH: Thanks to a tipster for letting us know about a car wash under way until 3 pm at the Filipino-American SDA Church across from Denny International Middle School. They shared a photo:

(back to original list) TOUR THE ALKI POINT LIGHTHOUSE: Just a few more chances this summer for free tours with the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary at Alki Point Lighthouse, 1-4 pm. (3200 Point Place)

SOPRANOS! Vocal recital presented by Music Northwest at First Lutheran Church of West Seattle, 3 pm. (4105 California SW)

‘HELLO, DOLLY!’ MATINEE: Twelfth Night Productions presents “Hello, Dolly!” in a matinee performance at West Seattle High School Theater, 3 pm. Don’t forget the diaper/clothing drive for WestSide Baby – get $3 off the price of an adult ticket if you bring a diaper/kids-clothing donation. (3000 California SW)

GOING TO TONIGHT’S SOUNDERS FC MATCH? Bring diapers for WestSide Baby! P.S. 7:30 pm game means extended Water Taxi service.

SUPERMOON: Watch the eastern sky around quarter past eight, right before sunset. (Moon/sun rising/setting times can always be found on the WSB West Seattle Weather page.)

OPEN-MICROPHONE JAM: Every Sunday night in August at Feedback Lounge (WSB sponsor), hosted by Lynn Sorensen – just show up with your voice and/or instrument starting at 7:30 pm – details in our calendar listing. (6451 California SW)

YES, THERE’S MORE! … on our calendar.


  1. Do you know where the Beach Naturalists will be at Lincoln Park? The website/flyer does not say, and it’s an awfully long stretch of coastline.

  3. Exit to West Seattle Bridge from 99 blocked by cops. Had to learn how to take the low bridge to Harbor Ave this morning!

  4. I would suggest watching for the moon a but earlier than recommended. It was viewable from West Seattle at 8pm last night. 8:15 may be too late for good pictures near the horizon.

  6. WS, for years we’ve been told they’re near the pool, so that’s why I replied as such. But I haven’t seen firsthand. Would make more sense for them to be closer in to parking, but we’re only as good as the info we get. Thanks.
