West Seattle weekend scenes (updated): Low tide; lighthouse

Not long after he stopped by to say hi at the West Seattle Junction Health Fair (continuing till 2; see our ongoing coverage) – Chas Redmond sent photos from Alki, right around the low point of the lowest tide of the month. The sunshine’s just been muted by some high clouds moving in, but not the rain-bearing variety, so don’t let that keep you at home! One other Alki attraction besides the tide – Chas also spotted the sign for the Alki Point Lighthouse, now open 1-4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays:

We’d just gotten that word from someone who talked with us at the Morgan Junction Community Festival yesterday, and will have it in the West Seattle Weekend Lineup from hereon out – we’re told the lighthouse has a small gift shop too!

ADDED 9:14 PM: Two more low-tide scenes – Shannon shared photos taken at Lincoln Park around noon.

Tomorrow, the tide will get almost as low as today: -3.1, compared to -3.2, just before 1 pm.

    The tidepooling was great today. Near Mee Kwa Mooks we saw large sea stars, a huge moon snail, geoducks, big red crabs and more.

Sorry, comment time is over.
