and Arroyos Beach Place where I spotted a small private beach
and, possibly, another stand of Madrona trees.
Climbing back up the hill, I came to a scenic stretch of Marine View Drive and spotted a point where the utility wires went from overhead to underground.
Along the way, I chatted with a friendly resident who praised the neighborhood and said that people move in and stay. Some of the houses were on the water and many were on large lots and/or had great views. I saw an amazing tree,
a dog watering station, courtesy of Delsey the Wonder Dog,
some great gardens,
lots of overhead wires (but only on certain streets)
and the point where the southern segment (not connected to that north of Thistle) of California Avenue ends.
I'm starting to expect spectacular views and Arbor Heights delivers.
My 2010 goal was to walk every public street in the city of Seattle. Four years and 2,722 miles completed the goal. A list of some of my favorite discoveries and an index of walks by neighborhood can be found in the March 2015 posts and in the very bottom post June 8, 2010.
In 2022, I decided to revisit some neighborhoods to observe their changes. See these meandering walks at http://walkingseattleagain.blogspot.com
