UPDATE 1/8/13: We inspected the dock and took more pics – read our updated post here !
BTB Reader Terry Haigh sent us this photo of a dock that washed up on the waterfront on SW 172nd in Burien’s Three Tree Point neighborhood Monday, Jan. 7 (click image to see larger version):
“Are you missing a dock or is this another one from Japan?” Terry asked, somewhat tongue-in-cheek (we think…).
Winds in the 20s with gusts up to 33MPH, combined with another high tide – a 12.3 foot one just before Noon – were the most likely causes of this dock finding its new home.
