West Seattle Wednesday: Fly Fishing Film Tour; basketball; housing levy; more…


The day began with a spectacular sunrise; the photo by James Bratsanos looking west to the Kitsap Peninsula shows the short-lived reflection of that sunrise glow. (Reminder – this, like most WSB photos now, can be clicked for a larger “lightbox” view!) Now looking ahead – here’s what’s on the calendar:

PAYING FOR COLLEGE: 10 am-7 pm, drop in for one-on-one help figuring out how to finance college, regardless of where you’re going or hoping to go. At the South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) Library – details in our preview. (6000 16th SW)

    Seeing this stunning photo reminded me of a question I’ve been meaning to ask: Why are there still ships at anchor in Puget Sound? The ships at anchor were a frequent site during last year’s Port ‘slowdown’, but I don’t understand why they are still there. Are these ships still waiting for dock space or is there another reason?Thanks

      Deb – Manchester is the holding area for bulk carriers, which are generally what’s been waiting. What I haven’t found out yet (the port tells me I have to ask the Coast Guard) is why we have seemed to have a continuous overflow of bulk carriers for a while now. Will publish a separate story when I find out because others have asked – TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
