Next Winner in the Beach Drive Blog Photo Contest

These two lovey sunset photos were submitted by Larry. It was really challenging for our judges to pick between them… we decided to make the photo with the Harbor West Condos extending over Puget Sound. ┬áThis photo is currently featured as our Facebook header.

I spoke to one of the guys on the job this morning about any concerns of heavy rainfall on the Atlas slide zone: “I definitely gave it a thought!”

Rhonda Porter of BDB captured these weather shots after the storm cleared
