Here’s what’s up in West Seattle for the hours ahead:
LOW-LOW TIDE: The tide is out to -4.0 feet at 11:06 am, so Seattle Aquarium beach naturalists are out today (now until 1 pm), at Lincoln Park (8011 Fauntleroy Way SW) only, because of the ongoing beach closures south of Alki Point.
BASTILLE DAY: Celebrate today at the Brocante Beach House on Alki (2622 Alki SW) with a special shopping event, French and Vintage, noon-8 pm.
WADING POOLS OPEN: A sunny and warm afternoon is expected, so the city says wading pools will be open – in West Seattle, that’s Delridge (noon-5:30 pm) and Lincoln Park (noon-7 pm). (Also, Highland Park Spraypark at 1100 SW Cloverdale is open 11 am-8 pm.)
COLMAN POOL: The outdoor pool at Lincoln Park will be open today as its 7-days-a-week schedule continues, noon-7 pm.
POSTCARDING POP-UP: From the organizers of the weekly Postcards to Voters events:
As we approach midterm elections in the midst of devastating gun violence and extremist attacks on fundamental rights, it’s easy and predictable to become immobilized.
But there are things we can do. One, though seemingly insignificant, can have enormous impact: writing postcards to register more Democratic voters, to remind voters to request mail-in ballots where applicable, and to get out the vote.
Come write some postcards at C&P Coffee every Tuesday, 10:30-12 or at a popup event: 4:30-6 pm Wednesday, July 13th.
This too is at C & P Coffee (5612 California SW; WSB sponsor).
