Whiskey Creek overflowed Taylor Avenue January 18, 2017.
A section of Sunset Loop road is like a trampoline … spongy and bouncy! Cause may be a water line that is seeping, or it might be simply something associated with the rainfall experienced in the last two days. Asphalt is relatively thin, so it also might be caused by a failure of the road base structure.

Wild Fish Conservancy has suggested removal of the log pond and a restoration of the landscape back to it’s original natural state. As a note, they surveyed Macs Dam Creek and found no fish, and that’s perhaps not surprising since it’s a short warm water stream. City has a quarter million dollar fish passage culvert in the Stormwater Capital Improvements Plans for a high end fish passage culvert at the Country Club Road intersection. That will likely do nothing to increase fish population, and certainly not anything for anadromous salmon.
It’s your money the City is considering spending (and almost certainly wasting).
The 1907 (or 1913, depending on who is telling the story) electrical generator building, now Bainbridge Island’s graffiti art center, and an occasional late night party involving more than a spray paint high.
Sunday, 5 June saw about 45 civilians exploring for low tide life at the Point White Pier with a bevy of Bainbridge Island Beach Naturalists there to help in storytelling and critter identification.
A moon snail … always impressive because of their size.
A red ribbon worm … bright orange and out searching for food. This one was maybe 30 inches long.
Looks like a sand volcano … but wait a couple of minutes, and the sand worm extends its food gathering tentacles and looks like a beach flower. It has amazingly fast reflexes if disturbed … faster than the eye can see it fully hides back under the sand. It’s tentacles are about 1.5+ inches in diameter (right image).
