We were at Alki Beach the moment summer officially kicked off on Wednesday afternoon. The last time we went to Alki was in 2007 as tourists, so this time around was certainly a different experience. I think we had a better time (meaning, we knew how to dress for the cool climate this time around).
The camera couldn’t capture how astonishing these light rays hitting the water were. Actually, why am I blaming the camera? It’s most likely my lack of photography skills. Still learning.
The Alki Beach neighborhood seemed to be a mix of bohemian artists and wealthy retirees, and reminded us of the equivalent of driving to the North Shore of Oahu or to a beach-side part of California. Well, minus the heat.
On our drive back home past all the condos lining the beach, we saw a lot of folks our parents’ age enjoying bottles of wine on their balconies. Seems everyone, including us, had a good first day of summer.
