HUNT CONTINUES: The glass float that was found almost afloat

This is the fourth day of this year’s West Seattle Glass Float Hunt, with 19 of the first 50 still waiting to be found. Of those that have been found, one was hidden almost afloat:

That’s Jonah of Alki Kayak Tours “hiding” a float on a piling – note the tide (and weather!) difference when float hunter Phil found and retrieved it:

Of the remaining 19, organizers say:

      That’s the only one I know of. It’s in west South Park so I guess it gets a pass as an honorary West Seattle business; asking our contact though if there are any others outside West Seattle.

        Without starting any “what’s considered West Seattle” debates, I guess the location technically falls within the promoted guidelines since it looks like it’s this side of the Duwamish, lol.

        “100 glass floats will be hidden throughout West Seattle: Alki to Roxbury, the Sound to the Duwamish.”

Sorry, comment time is over.
