Seattle Great Wheel

October 8
Seattle got its very own version of London eye called Seattle Great Wheel this summers. On a sunny clear day, it promises views of Seattle skyline, downtown buildings, Space needle, Cascade mountains, Elliot bay. 

We wanted to avoid the inaugural rush and skipped going in summers. Had we known Seattle would have more sunny, clear and hot days we are having these days, we would have pushed the visit a little further. But we made it a part of our anniversary celebrations and enjoyed some beautiful views. 
Let the photo parade begin…
This is one of my favorite jewelry pieces gifted by mother-in-law

Pier 57

There was still about half an hour wait

The ride lasts about 15 minutes and as far as I remember there were a total of 4 rounds.
A kind person in front of us saw us struggling to take our own picture and offered his help

South of downtown with Century Link and Safeco fields

Space needle in distance

We ended the afternoon with some quick fish and chips at Ivar’s…

… with the view of water, ships and over-enthusiastic seagulls!
Hope you are having a great monday full of smiles!

    Oh wow! Fantastic photos. And what a good day to do it, crystal clear view. It is just like the London Eye (only most days it’s too foggy in London to see anything!)

    Really great photos!
