Rainier Beach and Rainier View

It was pretty foggy when a friend and I started our 7.1 mile walk in the Rainier Beach and Rainier View neighborhoods today.

I'm really happy that the fog burned off before we finished our walk because this area has some great views. Most of the streets have sidewalks and curbs and houses are well-kept. This hilly neighborhood seemed quiet and desirable. Near the tops of the hills, we noted large older homes which probably have really good views.

I did not notice any shops or services but hope that future walks nearby will reveal what's available. We did pass Emerson Elementary School

and noted what was probably the original facade in front of a newer addition.

Hutchinson Playground is adjacent to the school.

This area is home to Amazing Grace Christian School.

We saw a few houses already decorated for Halloween; one featured a headless scarecrow and another a Monster Express.

We passed the colorful Jack's Library (a Little Free Library),

a poetry box (featuring the Ballad of the Morning Streets by Leroi Jones, a.k.a. Amiri Baraka) near a lovely garden seating area,

an interesting fence,

a tailored garden,

garden art

and loads of spider webs.

This was another pleasant walk through another nice Seattle neighborhood.
