The Duwamish river winds its way through the southern end of West Seattle and her many neighbors to the south. You won't see it on any travel brochures or quirky "Welcome to Seattle" postcards. Actually years of contamination have left the river an active superfund site, with murky waters and strange bits of beached debris. But it is getting better.
What a perfect way to end a melancholy summer floating down a contaminated river seeing beauty at every shore. A giant reminder that although life may not be perfect, there are countless opportunities to find beauty and joy.
