Old Man House Park, Suquamish

September 29th, 2005 · No Comments

On Tuesday, with friends, we visited Old Man House Park in Suquamish, with a view of Agate Pass Bridge connecting Bainbridge Island to the Kitsap Peninsula.

Sarah van Gelder wrote an excellent piece in the Yes magazine winter 2005 describing how this historical piece of land was recently returned to the Suquamish tribe.

The beach is covered with the smooth white shells of clams, which were once one of the staples of the Suquamish tribe’s diet.

While admiring the shoreline of Bainbridge, we also saw this militaristic metallic gray speed boat, flying the US flag at half-mast. (apologies for the poor picture).
