There was a negative low tide today and I got to Alki Beach Park when the tide was going out.
By the time I reached Constellation Park Marine Reserve, the tide was probably at its lowest and I couldn't resist being one of the people of all ages who were joining a naturalist on the beach. I spotted jellyfish, starfish, moon snail egg casings and even a crab.
The Avenue of the Stars.
Tearing myself away from the tide pools, I returned to Beach Drive SW and found myself at the 63rd Pump Station where I came across a sculpture which could not compare to the sea life I had just observed.
Cormorant Cove Park, I had a good view of the stilts supporting the Harbor West Condos.
Weather Watch Park where a monument offers educational information about weather words and the history of the area and the park.
La Rusica Restaurant.
Log House Museum (open Thursday to Sunday from 12-4). A short history, posted on the porch, states that the original settlers wanted to make this area a big city and named it New York. The word Alki (meaning "by and by") was added when they realized that would take a long time. When the settlers moved to what is now downtown Seattle, this area became a vacation spot and was known as the Coney Island of the West.
