Alki Beach and Me-Kwa-Mooks Park (+lunch at Bada Bistro)

After seeing a photo gallery on the Seattle Times website about Me-Kwa-Mooks Park I went there with my mom. We love the area and when I was younger I went to school nearby. it was a beautiful day, not too warm, not too cool, and just right for wearing shorts and a sweater on the beach. We also had lunch at Bada Bistro, across from Alki Beach, which is sandy and very nice on hot days, but can get crowded.

We found a crab at Me-Kwa-Mooks!

We also found a sea star (starfish, if you’re not being proper.)

And a rock full of fish eggs.

Such a pretty, rocky beach!

We also found Lady Liberty hanging out at Alki, brought to you by the boy scouts.

Now onto lunch!

We split some happy hour items and a burger, because we love trying as many things as possible for a good price. We had the gourmet burger, (with bacon. it was amazing), the calamari, the salad and the truffle fries. It was all delicious and very reasonably priced as we split everything and still had calamari to bring home.

Hope you’re enjoying summer, and getting out to the beaches if you’re on the coast or near the water and you enjoy the sort of thing.
