Every 4 -6 weeks, I drive from my home in Snohomish down to West Seattle (about 30 miles) to get my hair cut by my niece, Opal Fitzpatrick, at the Ola Salon. I grew up in West Seattle, so every month I get to meet a dear friend or two for lunch after my hair appointment. Today we decided to try a new burger joint on Alki, Blue Moon Burgers. (It's where the gas station, then auto repair shop, used to be.) Lunch was okay; the time spent with my friend - priceless. It's hard to go to West Seattle, and not cruise Alki and Beach Drive. It was raining, but I jumped out of the car and snapped a few photos.
