Sunset at the Alki beach was worth.
The best weekday plan we ever make is to the beach. Crowded on weekends, beaches like the Alki beach is not so much on a weekday. We got some good Seattle pictures, a good jog along the coastline, and a nice food choices due to the amazing restaurants in the area. There are not much public washrooms, so that is disappointing. You can go to a nearby playground to find a good restroom area.Read full story
