West Seattle scene: Moonrise, as tides rise to winter’s highest

Thanks to JayDee for the photo from Wednesday night’s moonrise, a perfect bookend to a day that began with an incredible moonset (nice views from Beach Drive Blog too). This full moon is bringing another round of very high tides – this morning, it’s up to 12.8 feet just before 6 am; this round will peak with the highest tides this winter, 13.3-foot high tides (per the chart we use) in the 7 am vicinity Saturday and Sunday. The state, by the way, is looking for your photos of these so-called “king tides.” P.S. Back to the moonrise – check out this breathtaking non-WS view sent via Twitter.
