West Seattle Saturday: Here’s how the last weekend of 2018 begins

(Northern Flicker, photographed by Mark Wangerin)

First – a reminder about the weather alert that’s in effect – the forecast winds, combined with the “king tide” (high tide is 12.6 feet at 10:33 am), could make for a stormwatching spectacle along west-facing West Seattle shores.

Otherwise, from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar and beyond:

FREE GROUP RUN: Meet at 8 am at West Seattle Runner (WSB sponsor) for this free weekly group run. (2743 California SW)

LEARN ABOUT WEST SEATTLE HISTORY: Visit the Log House Museum, open noon-4 pm today. No admission charge – suggested donation $3 adult, $1 child. (61st/Stevens)

DRINK LOCAL! Tasting rooms are open today for Viscon Cellars (2-7 pm, 5910 California SW) and Welcome Road Winery (1-7 pm, 3804 California SW), both WSB sponsors.

SOJOURN SOUL: Live music at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor), 7-9 pm:

Sojourn Soul is an acoustic three-piece primarily focused around swirling harmonies, driving guitar, dancing piano arrangements, and the occasional flightful string accompaniment; an atmospheric arrangement of original folk/Americana barnyard stomp harmony-driven acoustic tunes with a classic rock heartbeat.

    I love all the bird photos you put on here, and that you add the name of the bird in the caption. I’m getting better at identifying what kind it is and then checking the caption to see if I got it right :) Fun!
