Neighborhood OttersThere was a family of Otters who lived two houses down from Oliver's house who used the cross walk and look both ways on the street before crossing the road. These Otters were super smart and fun to watch!

Orca Whales & The Story of SpringerOrca Whales would travel to the Alki beach area. Even though the Pod would live near the San Juan Island people would get excited when they were near to get a glimpse of these beautiful mammals.

Bald Eagles & Sea BirdiesThere were several Bald Eagle nests in the trees behind Oliver's house and you could see them fishing often in the water. There are all kinds of wonderful birds which include Sea Gulls, Sand Pipers, Loons, Ducks, Geese, and so many other kinds!
Local Sea LionsThe Sea Lions would swim often in front of Oliver's house and would bark. They would even have babies on the beach and would guard and feed their young ones. We would walk Oliver down to where the baby Sea Lions where however were cautions due to the safety of the babies.
Neighborhood Sea LifeWhenever there was low-tide Oliver got to walk on the beach and check out all the crabs, starfish, fish and all the other wonderful sea life in the tide pools! The tide pools were out in front of the house and was always a treat to see. Seacrest Park has one of the top scuba parks in the Northwest!
