WEST SEATTLE SCENE: North Admiral St. Patrick’s Day tradition, renewed

It’s not St. Patrick’s Day for us without a trip to 41st SW north of Admiral Way to check on whether the mysterious green stripe has been renewed for another year. And yes, it has.

We say “renewed” because last year, someone noted that it is visible year-round, and voiced skepticism that it had actually been repainted. So we went by yesterday too for a pre-St. Patrick’s Day frame of reference. Verdict: Definitely refreshed in the past ~20 hours!

    I live on 41st and we look forward to this every year! My 5 year old is certain it’s done by leprechauns and had us all awake very early this morning, excited that it had been repainted.

    Love it! One year we did it on our street in Wallingford and a neighbor complained to the City, who came out and issued a warning for vandalism. St. Paddy’s Day scrooges!!

    That’s not a shamrock!
