Maybe it was because the sun was shining or maybe it was just the innate charm of the area but my husband and I were impressed with the tidiness of most of the 5.1 miles of Brighton streets we walked today. We could have been in Wedgwood or Crown Hill or many neighborhoods of West Seattle.
There were auto repair shops and apartments along Rainier Avenue S but, once we were a few buildings away from Rainier, we saw many well-maintained single family homes on nice sized lots. My husband did note a lot of chain-link fences and there were quite a few dogs who barked as we passed by.
Trinity Life Center, Columbia Place Senior Housing,
Universal Human Body Energy of America (meditation center),
Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School,
Thanh That Cao Dai Temple Seattle (Vietnamese Holy House)
and a few stairways connecting dead-end streets to Rainier Avenue.
