Weekend Trip to Seattle


Last weekend I flew to Seattle for a fabulous weekend in that city.  Of course I had to make a visit to the famous Pike Place Market.


The highlight of the trip was a visit to the Chihuly Garden and Glass center.  I think I became enthralled with Chihuly glass works when in 2009 the Desert Botanical Garden did the very first Chihuly exhibition in the garden.  I've always wanted to see his center in Seattle ever since it opened.  It was quite simply spectacular.


Since we were so close, a trip to the top of the Space Needle was also on the agenda.

The weekend was awesome.  The city has so much to offer and so much to eat!  The seafood was superb.

Oh you must have been so thrilled to see the Chihuly Centre Sharon, spectacular! Did you take any photos from the top of the Space Needle?

I can't recall ever seeing a perspective like that of the Space Needle- it's a good one.

The nice thing about you taking these trips is that you bring back such wonderful photos...it feels like we've been there with you. I was in Seattle for a conference in 1980 but never got up to the top of the needle. Hit some great restaurants, though. It's a super city and I'm glad you had so much fun.

The glass center must be pretty spectacular. Nice perspective on the Space Needle. I visited Seattle back in 1987 and loved it, it's a great city.

Pike Market is always fun, but, OH!, that Chihuly exhibition looks amazing.
