Slow Travel With Low Carbon Footprint

Summer in Seattle = Seafair!

This past week the Rebels by Bus went to West Seattle’s Alki Beach via the passenger-only ferry.  It was predicted to be HOT (for Seattle, at least), reaching the low 90’s.  Not a great day for walking the almost 3 mile concrete promenade along Alki.

It was unanimous…we decided to splurge and have lunch at Salty’s which is located less than 2 blocks (south) from the Seacrest Park, where the ferry lands in West Seattle.

We were seated close to the window.  Much to our surprise and delight the Blue Angels were practicing before our eyes!  What a treat.

After lunch we caught the free shuttle (Metro 775) to travel to the Admiral district and down to Alki.  We exited the bus on 63rd, where the first white settlers of Seattle (Denny party) landed.  We spent a short time to breath in the cooler salt air, before jumping back on the shuttle to catch our ferry.

Sharlene took some great photos of this trip… including a visit to the Klondike National Park site on Jackson Street and 2nd Avenue.  Check out the pictures at
