Warm weather is here and it is time to get out, stretch the muscles and later, the stomach! Let's meet at the South Parking Lot off West Emerson at 10AM. The hike down to the lighthouse is about 45 minutes with spectacular views of Elliott Bay from the bluffs. The hike up is a little difficult because of the numerous stairs, but we'll wait for you. Piggy-back rides are offered at a nominal fee. The entire hike takes about 2 hours.
Then at 12 noon, we can drive into Magnolia and eat at Mondello's Italian Ristorante,[masked]rd Ave W, Seattle. We will have separate checks which will include a mandatory tip of 20%. I know the owner, Carino and his mother Enza. I have provided a link to Urbanspoon to read the ratings and see the menu:
It will be a fun time with warmer weather, a pleasant hike, and delicious food.
There are three entrances to Discovery Park, please ensure you go to the South Lot, not the Visitor Center. If you get lost, my number is[masked]-4385.
