In all its ruffled glory, standing on the beach, the bald eagle photographed by Melanie Dixon seems just as fierce and regal as when soaring above. Our 9/11 anniversary events list is here (and our morning visit to Alki’s Lady Liberty is here); what follows is the rest of today’s highlights, from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar:

COLMAN POOL’S LAST DAY OF THE YEAR: We took that photo on July 4th, the day the outdoor pool at Lincoln Park marked its 70th anniversary, and the weather today is just as beautiful. Swimming starts at noon; note that next year’s opening is scheduled to be later than usual because of work in the offseason. Today’s schedule is here.
