Last weekend, my Mother-in-Law came to visit before she heads off to New Zealand for a few months. (I’m so jealous!) We were bless with a beautiful weekend here in Seattle so we took advantage of it by hopping the ferry over to the city and played tourist for the day.
Our main stop was the Space Needle. It was the 50th anniversary and had been at least a decade since any of us had gone up to the top so we forked over the $19 to ride the elevator 500’ up.
The view was gorgeous – Lake Union was such a piercing blue.
There was a Mariner’s game going on at the same time and the rest of the city was eerily quiet. You can see the stadiums, a ferry pulling in, and Mt Rainier faintly in the background.
Seattle does have quite the unique skyline.
There were the obligatory pictures at the top before we headed back down and wandered the quiet streets of the city.
Going up the Needle was a nice little treat, but I think I’m good for another decade, at least.
