West Seattle scene: Waiting for the tide to come back in

The cameraphone photo’s a bit fuzzy but you get the drift, so to speak – today’s low tide left a boat marooned on the Alki flats. Thanks to Stephanie for sending the photo; it reminded us of one we photographed last year – we looked it up and in fact, that one was in July 2008. Today’s low tide bottomed out before noon so here’s hoping today’s unlucky boater will be back afloat soon; there are minus tides for the next few days as well, but none as low as the past few days.

    I saw the police walk out to check the boat this morning, it looked odd out there on the sand.

    Coast Guard came by and checked it out, also.

    This is why my dad always carried a can of paint and some brushes in his boat…. “Oh yeah, I meant to do this….”

Sorry, comment time is over.
