We were alerted this morning by a Beach Drive neighbor, “Indie Mike”, that a vehicle was on the beach at Cormorant Cove Park. Another Beach Drive neighbor who was passing by informed me that earlier in the morning, a tow truck was on the scene with fire and rescue to try to remove the car. Their was a huge emergency response around 6:10 am. The vehicle seems to be lodged on rocks. Low tide is 3.2 feet at 10:06 am. When we first heard about this incident, we assumed that perhaps the ramp along the condos was how the car accessed the beach. Apparently, the driver opted for the sidewalk and plo ..read more

An early study suggested that the bubbles in Puget Sound might be coming up from this underlying subduction zone. In mapping these plumes, it became clear that large numbers that were aligne ..read more

Hello Beach Drive Neighbors! It’s hard to believe that we have been writing Beach Drive Blog for 16 years now!

Our hard-hitting news is typically warning of potential storms or flooding, a garage sale or possibly a lost pet. It’s obvious that this is not my full-time job and my budding art career is not enough to where I can “quit my day job”…honestly, I actually quite enjoy my day job so… I was thinking that I’m probably overdue as the sole sponsor to provide a brief com ..read more

Recently Julia Weaver from Redfin published “What is Seattle known for? 22 Ways to Get to Know the Emerald City” and our tiny blog was featured. ““The neighborhood along Beach Drive features several marine parks that are easily accessible from Constellation, Commorant Cove, Emma Schmitz View Point to Lincoln Park,” says writer Rhonda Porter at The Beach Drive Blog. “Cormorant Cove has a beach where people launch kayaks and paddle boards and leave small treasures for others to find. It’s not unusual to see people lined up with their binoculars to watch Orcas from Emma Schmitz, and Lincoln ..read more
