  1. So things can be posted on Sunset Drive on the grass area. Good to know!
    All the pictures of Sunset drive, new walking only area, show no more than 2 or 3 walkers. Closure of Edmonds scenic rte has served homeowners only on Sunset. Open the roadway! Let all of Edmonds enjoy OUR VIEW

    1. Loved the flags on Sunset. Thank you to all who worked on the project. When I walked at 3pm it was busy on Sunset but people were social distancing. Thank you to the City for closing Sunset to thru traffic and making it a safe place for all who want to walk. Let’s keep it just the way it is throughout the pandemic and beyond. No more gas fumes from parked cars and lots of room to walk or bicycle. Anyone can join in the stroll or sit on benches–just park your car and walk. NO, I do not live on Sunset Avenue.

  2. Thank you for the flags on Sunset with names of the fallen. This tribute is a reminder of what Memorial Day is really about. Perhaps this year the flags with the names had more meaning to me because last year I was with my nephew, a major in the army, at a Boots on the Ground tribute where he was seeking out the names of his comrades who died in Afghanistan and Iraq–reminding me that these names are real people who lost their lives serving our country. I sometimes have gone to the normal Memorial Day service, but these flags along Sunset provide the opportunity for more people to see this tribute. Thank you. And thanks to MyEdmondsNews for posting the pictures.

  3. I am also feeling much more reflective and appreciative this year of the cost paid for my freedom. LONG overdue, I regret to admit. My thanks for the photo, the project and the sacrifice.

  4. It was moving to view the flag tribute. I was pleased so many people viewed the name on each flag. It was also as quiet as the cemetery other than the occasional train passing by town. This was a great idea and would be a nice tradition because the tribute came to the neighborhood . I saw many people walking and enjoying the backdrop of the shoreline on a sunny day. A great day to remember those who did serve our country and those presently serving.
