Another day full of sunshine – but without as full a slate of events as Saturday (when we photographed that pirate kite on Alki)! Still a few things of note. From the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

TAI CHI ON THE BEACH: Martial-arts instructor Lao-Shi (Caylen Storm) leads a group at Alki (every Sunday morning), 9 am, $1.

PLANTS AND PETS: Furry Faces Foundation fundraiser plant sale, with adoptable dogs on site. 10 am-4 pm, 3809 46th SW, flyer with full detailsat furryfaces.org

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: Market manager Catherine Burke says today’s special features and new arrivals include cherries, morel mushrooms, music by Farm Report, and kids’ tent activities courtesy of Junction toy store Curious Kidstuff. 10 am-2 pm, 44th/Alaska.

ADOPTABLE CATS: Side trip while you’re at the Farmers’ Market, perhaps? West Seattle-based Friends of the Animals Foundation is at Next to Nature in The Junction, 11 am to 2 pm, with adoptable kittens and cats. All have been spayed/neutered and are up-to-date with routine shots.

SWIM IN THE SUNSHINE: Colman Pool at Lincoln Park, our area’s only city-owned outdoor pool, is open on the pre-season-weekend schedule again, with sessions starting at noon (here’s the schedule and other info – and take note that a computer upgrade means they’re not taking plastic after 4 pm, today only).

BEACH NATURALISTS: Seattle Aquarium naturalists will be on the beach near Colman Pool and south of Alki Point, 12:30-3:30 – the low tide is back on the rise but still notable, -1.6 just before 2 pm (here’s the chart for the entire month).
