Central District Atlantic Neighborhood

A trip to the Repast Bakery where my friend had an almond bear claw (she loved it) and I had a chocolate croissant (probably the best I've ever tasted) took us to the Central District and we decided to fill in some streets in the Atlantic neighborhood.

We walked south on 20th Avenue S, passing Saint Mary's Church

and Food Bank (which had a long line),

Giddens School (which appeared to be in the old St. Mary's School building)

and the Catholic Community Services Martin Luther King Day Home Center. It appeared to be closed and one website I found says that it was a good day care that closed on 6/30/13.

We kept walking to the southern end of Judkin's Park before heading back north, passing the skatespot,

the Judge Charles M. Stokes Overlook, the Christian Restoration Center,

the Judkins Park Apartments

and some well maintained houses and gardens

before coming to Washington Middle School.

Along the way, we spotted a lovely rose garden,

glimpses of the old U.S. Marine Hospital (later Pacific Medical Center, later Amazon headquarters) and Century Link Field, Franz Bakery, a sign that said "zipcars live here", a few signs for the City of Seattle Summer Food Service Program,

some sidewalk art

and a car with a pink mustache (signifying Lyft a ride-sharing service).

At 3.3 miles, this was not a long walk but a nice one.
