    Point Robinson Lighthouse

    lighthouse on Vashon Island

    Robinson Park is on the eastern side of the Maury Island part of Vashon Island, and marks the midway point between Tacoma and Seattle in Puget sound. The rocky beach here is good for beachcombing, and the lighthouse provides an attractive backdrop; a great place for a stroll with broad views of Puget Sound and Seattle.

    You can only get here by boat or ferry, so getting here is pretty much a day trip in itself. If you are looking for an easy going day without crowds of people, this is a good choice.

    West Point Lighthouse

    This lighthouse, located in Discovery Park, is now owned by the Seattle Parks and Recreation Department. Obviously no longer in use, but still quite a sight to behold after a long walk in the park. Enjoy the grounds and the views.

    West Seattle / Alki Point

    Alki Point

    Being a lighthouse freak, I finally took a picture of one that I had seen off and on. Alki Point however, is closed to the public most of the time with only certain hours on the weekend open for tours. It is hard to even get very close as there are apartment buildings and homes located nearby. I felt like I may be arrested or shot at if I got any closer.

    This one was completed in 1913 in an area of the first settlement of Seattle (Alki is Chinook for "by and by"). Today, senior coast guard officials live in houses located on the premises.

    Port Townsend

    Across the sound from Seattle and on the way to Olympia National forest is the fishing village of Port Townsend.

    Check out the Lighthouse at the North entrance to the bay.
    It took us an hour to hike down the trails to the lighthouse.
