Trip to West Seattle

C had some business in West Seattle, so I headed over there to share some coffee and check it out. Here are the tugs at the north end of Elliott Bay.

The view of Seattle from Alki is amazing, as the Space Needle peaks out from behind the bluff

From Salty's, the million-dollar view.

Lots of fishermen casting and jigging for salmon at the mouth of the Duwamish River, as it empties into Elliott Bay. Lots of fishermen, but no salmon visible.

At the Goldmark Lookout in Madrona, a house across the street with an old sign advertising burgers and soda. The plaque commemorating the Goldmarks is a reminder of real madness and grief that is present.

Thanks for the good wishes, Andy. I am cautiously optimistic that I'll be back on my bike in NOLA by week's end. Thank goodness.
