South Interbay

Back from vacation and missing our Seattle walks, my husband and I took a 6.3 mile walk in the Interbay neighborhood.

We walked along the Elliott Bay waterfront through Centennial Park, Myrtle Edwards Park, the Olympic Sculpture Park and up the Pike Street Hill Climb to the Pike Place Market then back along Pike Place, Western Avenue and Elliott Avenue W to Kinnear Park.

Adjacent to Kinnear Park is the Wine Outlet where we stopped to do some wine tasting and buy some wine. Richard, the owner, is very friendly and helpful.

We crossed the Amgen Helix Bridge back to the waterfront.

Along the way, we saw some pretty big cruise ships,

a great view of Mount Rainier,

the old PI globe,

salmon net pens where the Muckleshoot and Suquamish Tribes and the Port of Seattle raise Coho Salmon for "delayed release",

a rose garden,

The waterfront has great views and lovely park space.

Western and Elliott Avenues are homes to newer office complexes; some have very nice outdoor spaces and sculptures.

This was a great return-to-Seattle walk on a beautiful day.
