This is a typical summer dinner scene on Puget Sound. Warm balmy breeze, lovely sunset, a menu that features fresh seafood served in an open air dining area over the water. It could be one of any number of Seattle area restaurants, and it is an experience no Seattlite or visitor should forgo during these long evenings of absolute perfection. I took this shot at 9:20 PM, and it happens to be of Anthony's Home Port (a chain restaurant) at Shilshole Bay, taken from the deck next door at Ray's Boathouse restaurant (a stand alone establishment). If a restaurant is not in the budget, a picnic supper at nearby Golden Gardens, Sunset Hill Park, or a bit north at Carkeek Park, or further south along Magnolia Bluff, Discovery Park, or up at Queen Anne's Marshall Park is just fine, too. We've waited soooo long for these summer evenings. Just get out there! For 5 more views of this sunset, click my More Seattle Stuff page.
