Look ma, I've got a Space Needle growing out of my head!
In the 7+ years we've lived here, we've never once visited the Space Needle. This was a landmark that Silas certainly noticed and took interest in when we were in Seattle recently. So, when Silas' Uncle Jeff and Aunt Amy gave us the very generous gift of Seattle City Passes for Christmas, we were happy to make the Space Needle our first stop. Thankfully, the weather obliged and we had a brilliantly clear day in which to view the city, Puget Sound, the Cascade mountains to the east, and the Olympics to the west.
Looking west, over the Sound and towards home, with the Olympic Mountain range beyond: Elliott bay, featuring the ferryboat we take when we venture to Seattle: And our lovely Mt. Rainier was its usual magical self. We also went to the EMP/SFM that day. I will post some pictures from there soon.
