The paved trail runs between the beach and a bustling road lined with restaurants and housing. Our favorite house was what we called "the house of flowers," above. It has dozens of hanging baskets and flower pots. I wonder how long it takes to water them -- or maybe they're on an automatic system.
Looking out over the water, we saw the Space Needle (above), the Seattle skyline, sailboats, kayaks, paddle boarders, ferries, eagles, sea lions and sun bathers.

Lunch was at Cactus, an excellent Mexican restaurant. I had my usual: chicken enchiladas with green sauce. Yum!
While we waited in the ferry line to come home, we looked into the water and saw thousands of little fish swirling around. It was mesmerizing. Then it was onto the ferry for the ride from West Seattle to Port Orchard and then a drive back to Gig Harbor.
Have a colorful day
