Large Barge

Recently spent a little time around the Duwamish River in South Park, Seattle.  This day the river was really high due to runoff in the mountains. The barge looked like an ocean going type, although I’m no barge expert.  There are a couple of more steps, in the image, that are usually visible even during high tide.

Note: I used an old, Vivitar wide angle lens on the barge photo.

Exploring

IMG_0313Two of our grandchildren exploring the beach at Jack Block Park on Elliott Bay in Seattle. Although the water was frigid they did wade in for a brief moment :-). Today they are back in school with the rest of the Seattle students. I had a fun summer watching them. although a bit crazy at times. Madeleine starts the 4th grade and Adam first grade. Seem like not so long ago I was changing their diapers!

West Seattle Vanished

West Seattle actually had a working flour mill, Stone Ground Mills. The mill produced Stone Buhr Flour, which we have used for years. The mill* is located at 26th and Yancy St., adjacent to what is now Nucor Steel. This area is technically known as Youngstown ( or North Delridge Area). The Steel mill was originally named Bethlehem Steel, one of the many owned by this large corporation years and  years ago. Nucor Steel produces mostly rebar these days.

Here is a link to a thread which has additional photos of Stone Ground Mill. Stone Buhr Flour is still a viable product, I think. I haven’t been by the site since I took these photos, but according to the link above, it was there in 2010, which is about when I was tramping around the site (probably before the year on the watermark). The building was in bad shape 7 years ago, so I would suspect it is either gone now or …….?

*The mill is now located in Kent, Washington, approximately 10 miles south of Seattle.

Icy Cold in Seattle

It’s been a cold week in Seattle.

West Seattle Church

In a rundown state. Even the stained glass windows look like they have been neglected for some time.
