Alki Beach, Seattle - #SaturdaySnapshots

Last year about this time I went to Alki Beach (Seattle) for one of my first walks with the senior center group. We returned there last week on a dark, rainy day, as you can tell from this photo.

(Click on pictures to enlarge them.)

Luckily, the precipitation was mostly misty and didn't dampen anyone's spirits We all enjoyed views of the Seattle skyline.

Seagulls dive-bombed for their dinner. Looks like this one nabbed a juicy crab.

We stopped at the site of the old Alki Beach Natatorium, opened in 1907 and closed in 1913, and enjoyed reading the historical markers and checking out the display.

After a delicious lunch at Cactus Restaurant, we piled into the senior center bus and headed home. I hope to visit again when the sun's shining.

  1. That picture of the seagull is so interesting! I love pictures of animals that aren't in an obvious positions!

  2. I admire your chutzpah getting out on such a dark, rainy day. I usually pull the drapes and sit at my computer or heaven forbid, do housework.

  3. I see the weather in Seattle isn't that much different from the weather down here in the Portland area! You know, I have never been to Alki Beach! My husband's grandmother grew up there and her family owned a public boathouse (or something like that) back in the day.
