Shilshole’s missing sea serpent

Posted by Geeky Swedes on February 27th, 2008

No, there’s not a big sea serpent swimming around off Golden Gardens (although that was a fascination years ago), but Kim from Seattle Daily Photo noticed that the metal sea serpent sculpture is missing from the Shilshole jetty. “There are only jagged pieces sticking up in the places it was anchored into the jetty,” she writes, showing this photo she snapped (larger view here)…

After a little investigation, the mystery is solved. A few concerned residents took the sculpture down to refurbish it, says our contact at Shilshole Bay Marina. And it will be replaced soon. Meanwhile, workers at the marina have just finished construction of 22 new docks, part of the Shilshole Bay Marina Renewal and Replacement Project (details here.)
