    Was out walking on Alki early this morning watching the ferries go by. Saw, a little after 7 a parks maintenance worker coming to clean the restrooms. We really do have (and want/need) a 24/7/365 city. We ALL need to take a moment to appreciate all those willing to (or may have to) work on not only this special holiday but all the other holidays.  Thanks to all!!

      We couldn’t call and check because they don’t seem to have a phone # .. but checking their online ordering system, the next available window is Tuesday afternoon, so that would seem to suggest they’re closed.

Sorry, comment time is over.
