Duwamish Waterway North of Bridges

Before my trouble with T-5 security I walked between the T-7 buildings.  They were open for trucks to unload and did not have chain link fences obstructing access.  From there I got some great shots of the northern end of the Duwamish River.  This area is just past the West Seattle Bridge and close to what I would call her mouth.

It is an area of commerce and what a lot of us would call just plain junk left behind from another time.

There is also nature here and a troop of ducks cut across the waterway as a tug approached.

Then the tug was upon me.  I took a little video which not only shows the red tug but gives you an idea of how narrow this piece of the waterway is.

Now let us look at the stuff behind T-7 on the river bank.

On the West side of T-7 I was closer to the T-5 dock and noticed a gull sitting on a video camera.  At first I thought it was askew but then realized it was pointing at where someone might climb the fence. This was my first clue that security was tight around T-5.  Not a big surprise since the Arctic drill rig the Polar Pioneer had caused so much environmental activism.

I leave you with a photo looking north towards the Duwamish River/Waterway mouth. This is an old dock on the side of T-5 and in the distance is Elliott Bay and West Seattle.

  1. Great pictures. I like contemplating the water, but my favorite is the resilient seagull. 🙂
