The first part of the walk started in East Queen Anne (near Aurora Avenue north of Mercer) and dipped into Lower Queen Anne. The area was mostly residential with a few businesses.
older apartment buildings,
and some creative landscaping. In spite of being close to Seattle Center, this was a pretty quite neighborhood.
The second part of the walk included West Queen Anne and Alaskan Way in Interbay. The eastern portion of this area had lovely homes and views. I passed (and climbed) staircases - one with a sign that indicated it had been built in 1939-1940 as part of the Works Public Administration.
I walked through the Southwest Queen Anne Greenbelt and noted an interestingly designed slide.
The western portion of this area included 15th Avenue and Elliott Avenue W which are busy commercial streets with quite a few building supply stores, Whole Foods, the Interbay Postal Annex, the Wine Outlet, a few large furniture consignment shops and the Amgen Helix Bridge. I crossed the bridge and walked the periphery of the attractive Amgen campus which led me to a bike path.
Along the way, I passed a tree decorated for Easter
and some inviting looking benches. This was a much more varied area.
