Today's weather was great for walking so I went back to West Seattle for an 8.9 mile walk in the High Point and Roxhill neighborhoods. This walk connected four prior walks and most of the streets covered were residential.
In my prior High Point post, I commented that only a corner store was missing. They are not exactly what I had in mind but, today, I spotted two mini-marts, one near Graham and 34th - the Highpoint Mini Market (Hallal Meats and Spices) and the other the South Seattle Market (also a gas station) at 35th and Morgan. The high-rise in the background is Stewart Manor (low income public housing). I only remember one other apartment house from this walk.
Near the Highpoint Mini Market, on Graham, is the Lighthouse Assembly of God Church. I spotted "Private Property No Trespassing" signs at two High Point locations - one had a proposed land use action to build 20 residential units.
Forest Lawn Mausoleum and Columbarium
Thien An Vietnamese Baptist Church.
Chief Sealth International High School abutted the southeast corner of this walk and I'll get pictures of it on a future walk. Around this point in the walk, I met a woman walking her friendly dog and we chatted a bit. She told me of a p-patch near 23rd and Kenyon which had been a farm belonging to a Japanese family who were interred during WWII. Another site to photograph on a future walk.
which is across the street from Kenyon Hall, Locol and Westwood Florist.
Westside School (in the old E.C. Hughes School building).
E.C. Hughes Playground takes up about two city blocks and I think I spotted the daycampers who had been at High Point Commons Park the other day.
Walt Hundley Playfield (across the street from Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, School and Parish Hall. (I'll post pictures in a future post when I pass the front of the church).
High Point Community Center
West Seattle Elementary School.
West Seattle Food Bank).
