West Seattle scenes: Eagle on the beach; “Junction Rebellion”

Thanks to Stacey and Brooklyn Fuda for that photo – Stacey explains, “My daughter and I were at Alki this morning at about 10:30 during the low tide and we saw an Eagle hanging out on the sand. It was pretty awesome! I can’t say that I’ve ever seen anything like that before!” (With all the great eagle sightings lately, we have a guest-written feature story in the works for sometime this weekend.) Meantime, back inland to The Junction, we’ve mentioned today’s “Junction Rebellion” shopping discounts (coupons here; participants listed here) – Jefferson Square has participants too, including Square One Books:

And Snap Fitness (WSB sponsor) is having an open house with free food:

Guests too – with Snap’s MJ Benavente in the middle, that’s Mary Zwerling at left and sports chiropractor Michael Ross (who gave a talk this morning) at left:

Snap’s open house continues till 3 pm. More big events happening around West Seattle as the day goes on – next up, the Pet Rodeo and Snooty Walk presented by West Seattle High School students at Hiawatha (including pet adoption!), 2-4 pm, and Feedback Lounge‘s grand opening night, starting at 6 pm (see our Thursday night sneak peek here).

    Beautiful eagle. A few years ago I saw a bald eagle on Alki Beach – a huge bird with feet in the water, feathers on its legs like bellbottom pants.

    I happily purchased a new book at Square One books. It is nice not to pay tax for a day. My mother in law really took advantage of the shopping.

    We saw the eagle circling over Calif Ave near Brandon at 12:30 today! Very odd seeing that bird in an urban setting.

    I’m down at the beach around 9 am almost every morning and if there’s a really low tide like this morning it’s pretty common to see one of the eagles standing in the sand, trying to ignore the crows and seagulls whirling around it. So very beautiful.

Sorry, comment time is over.
