I have to be hopeful that the skies stay autumn-blue for the month of September. We need a little afternoon sun in this short season. There’ s a cold thread in the warm breeze that feels like football, raking leaves, and pull-over sweaters. It’s coming, but we’re still on the edge.
We’re also on the edge of civic changes, trying keep the focus on protests against police brutality, wanting to see reform knowing that Black Lives Matter. It’s not polarizing to call-out injustice– What kind of American is on the side of injustice? Sadly, there is an answer to that, with evidence on video. The civic political tension is pushed into another effort: stopping the spread of Covid-19.
It has changed our streets, and the experiences here. I don’t know how you’d tour Seattle without reference to the local circumstances. We’re adjusting to keep favorite places, and restaurants opened, and we have great city parks and waterways to enjoy. For now, I’d include some time on the water, another autumn-blue gem, by taking a ride on the ferry or a local tour-cruise. It’s a refreshing view of Seattle’s waterfront.
While we’re gently trying to do our home work, I ask visitors to please bring your patience, seriously wear a mask, and keep yourself safely distanced.
Thank you for reading, and stay well, from Margaret at Best Guide Seattle
