West Seattle scenes: 1st Saturday morning of spring

Not even noon yet, and so much has happened already. First, check out the throng outside West Seattle Thriftway in Morgan Junction just before its 9 am egg hunt (so big, we needed two angles – first the group on the south side of the storefront, then the north side):



We hopped quickly over to Alki to catch the crowd gathering at the start of Walk for Water – Seattle is one of two cities nationwide to host this World Water Day event:



Next stop, Delridge Community Center – one of West Seattle’s five city-run community centers, all of which had egg hunts at 10 am today – at Delridge, the crowd was broken into three age groups; here’s video of elementary-age kids on the run for their hunt:

Also at Delridge at 10 am, just yards away from the egg-hunt kids and their Easter baskets, older kids — a few dozen from Denny Middle School — were holding different types of collection containers: bright yellow bags for the Delridge Adopt-A-Street cleanup; the students joined North Delridge Neighborhood Council members in this morning’s effort:


Still more to come in West Seattle as the day continues; our West Seattle Weekend Lineup has the comprehensive list.

    We had a great time at the Thriftway egg hunt BUT unfortunately I put our digital camera down to console my child (fell) and in that split second someone took our camera. I sure wish I had at least had a chance to see the pictures we took.

    Oh, Hope, that’s awful. If it’s any small consolation, Thriftway took a bunch of inside pix and its webmaster told us they’ll be up next week. Please do file a police report if you haven’t already – we see a lot of “found items” reports at the precinct and you never know when the thief will just leave it somewhere and you might have an unexpected chance to get it back, if there’s a report on file.

    I love Thriftway. It’s my favorite grocery store. The prices are kinda high, but the quality of produce and the friendliness of the employees keep me coming back.

    Thanks for the tips, WSB! I really appreciate it.

    Completely agree — Thriftway and employees are awesome!

Sorry, comment time is over.
