PHOTOS: 2018 Seafair Parade of Ships off West Seattle

12:34 PM: With the USS Somerset (LPD-25) in the lead, the Seafair Parade of Ships is now in view off Alki. More to come.

1 PM: Now passing Luna/Anchor Park – the USS Momsen (DDG-92) is second in the parade.

1:30 PM: And, it’s on to downtown. Thanks meantime to everyone who’s sending great photos – starting with this view of West Seattle from Christie Brown on board USS Somerset:

Another from Christie:

The view from Gary Jones as the Somerset and Momsen turned east at Alki Point:

Our Twitter video when fireboat Leschi greeted the ships near Luna/Anchor Park (this also includes USCGC Mellon):

ADDED 4:33 PM: Still adding. Thanks to Monica Zaborac for the next two photos:

That’s the Mellon; below, visiting from Canada, HMCS Whitehorse:

And, tweeted by @macjustice, the aerial view:

    Thanks for covering this.  I work at Pier 91, and we were definitely wondering why the Somerset ship was moored next door. I should have realized it was for Seafair.
