Another 90ish day predicted. So today’s highlights begin at the beach and in the pool(s):
LOW-LOW TIDE, WITH BEACH NATURALISTS: Today’s low tide, just after 11 am, is out to -2.2 feet. And that’s why you’ll find Seattle Aquarium volunteer beach naturalists out at Constellation and Lincoln Parks, 9:45 am-1 pm.
OPENING DAY FOR HIAWATHA, EC HUGHES WADING POOLS: First chance this season for kids to play at the two West Seattle wading pools that hadn’t already opened: Noon-6:30 pm at Hiawatha (Walnut/Lander), noon-7 pm at EC Hughes (28th/Holden). Lincoln Park wading pool (8011 Fauntleroy Way SW) is also open today (and every day), 11 am-8 pm, as is Highland Park Spraypark (1100 SW Cloverdale), same hours. Full citywide schedule here.
OFFICE JUNCTION MEETUP: Noon-1 pm, cool place to meet your fellow home-office, coffee-shop, laptop-at-the-park-or-beach workers for an hour and see West Seattle’s only coworking center. (6040 California SW)
HIGH POINT MARKET GARDEN, WEEK 2: 4-7 pm, this summer’s second weekly session for the High Point Market Garden Farm Stand, where you can buy fresh organic produce grown by local urban farmers, steps from where it’s grown. Here’s our coverage of opening day a week ago. (32nd/Juneau)
