West Seattle sunshine scenes: In the sky and on the sea

Headed home? Enjoy the sunshine – forecast suggests it might not be back tomorrow. Above, a paraglider was in flight again this afternoon over the West Seattle shore – we caught him headed southbound over Emma Schmitz Overlook/Me-Kwa-Mooks. Don’t know if it’s the same one we featured two months ago. Below, the newest state ferry Samish is still out on sea trials; we spotted it this morning from Charlestown Hill:

The Samish is the second of three 144-car ferries being built at Vigor on Harbor Island and is expected to start service in June in the San Juan Islands – but if you see a ferry off West Seattle making unusual moves between now and then, it’s probably this one.

    I hope this fad of paragliding doesn’t catch on….very noisy going over Alki. It is bad enough we have the Geico bush plane flying on all nice days. Between the 2 the day is ruined for those of us who live here and want to be outside

Sorry, comment time is over.
