The Argosy Christmas Ships came to West Seattle Dec. 7 visiting Lowman and Alki Beach delighting the crowd with Christmas Music. Big groups of people showed up despite temperatures in the 20's.

SLIDESHOW: Christmas ships were cool in the cold

The Argosy Cruises Christmas ships paid their annual visit to West Seattle on Dec. 7 with a stop at both Lowman Beach and Alki Beach delighting crowds of people at both locations despite the frigid temperatures.

Seattle Parks provided a bonfire (though at quite a distance) but the ships did what they always do, stopping off shore and letting the Christmas music pour out over the water to the waiting ears of the crowd.

The ships will be back to dazzle the diners at Salty's on Alki on Dec. 16 at 9:15pm.
