West Seattle scene: Underground birthday tour at Lowman Beach

Our full story on today’s daylong briefing/tour event regarding sewer-overflow control proposals at Lowman Beach is still in the works. But while we were waiting for our turn on the tour at Lowman’s Murray Pump Station – a surprise scene. These boys came over and asked if they could see – one of them was celebrating his birthday. Adult permission, and county permission, was secured, and down they went.

(Our tour photos, and the rest of the story from today’s “technical information session,” still to come; the tour went on to Alki for a look at the newly expanded 53rd Avenue Pump Station, too.)

    That was an unbelievably warm and open gesture from the County to do this – as a former kid, I also applaud the bravado of the young lads. Inquiry was advanced, education was accomplished and a birthday party at Lowman Beach Park experienced yet another secret treat of that special place. Awesome.

Sorry, comment time is over.
