North Delridge, Harbor Island and the Industrial District
West Seattle Bridge Bike Trail and I was pleasantly surprised by the views along the way. My 6.9 mile walk took from the Industrial District, through Harbor Island and into the North Delridge neighborhood of West Seattle. I spent a lot of time waiting at crosswalks because lights are definitely geared to favor car and truck traffic over pedestrians and I passed many six-way intersections.
All Star Fitness Center which bordered on a lovely creek.
Nucor Steel Company Plant, Bartell's Corporate Headquarters, Cafe Skykark Club, signs for the Duwamish, Alki and West Seattle Bridge Trails
Chelan Cafe (with its sign noting that it was voted the best diner in Seattle.
Harbor Island Marina on the south end of Harbor Island.
Combined Sewer Overflow.
East of the Duwamish, I was in the industrial area with warehouses, railroad tracks and, along Spokane Street, I was again educated by historical information posted on the pillars of the bridge approach. I do enjoy the Frye Museum and was surprised to learn that it is supported by the real estate holdings which go back to the meat packing industry in this SoDo neighborhood.
