West Seattle Wednesday: Bicycling; microhousing; running; Madison newcomers’ potluck; Denny/Sealth concert…

Thanks to John Hinkey for today’s featured photo, taken after sunset Tuesday and sent to us late last night. Just so happened that your editor here was on the state ferry M/V Kaleetan from Bremerton a short time later, when it came to a stop in Rich Passage, with no announcement; walking around the outer deck to investigate, we spotted the sub and its escorts – the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Osprey, a smaller USCG vessel, and two tugs. We shared an iPhone photo via Instagram at the time, but were happy to see John’s much-better photo come in later.

Now, on with highlights for today/tonight:
