The last landmark we visited in Seattle was Seattle Center. I took in the massive Space Needle that loomed above as we crossed the grass and stone plaza. Indoors we grabbed burgers (I with a bottle of Manny’s Pale Ale) and took great joy in the blasting air conditioning.
The outdoor plaza, at first, reminded me of being at theme park but soon gave way to a peaceful sitting area and lawn overlooking a giant fountain. Families and friends screamed as they tried to push one another into the cascading water while others soaked up the sun on low sitting benches.
The Space Needle was picture perfect and it was an amazing end to a perfect weekend in the Pacific Northwest.
