the space needle
My first trip to Seattle wouldn't have been complete without a trip up the Space Needle. Since it was the middle of winter, hardly any people were there so we didn't have to wait in any lines or fight crowds once we got to the top. The best part? Clear skies all around. (And the clam chowder in a bread bowl). Seattle has a really beautiful skyline and the Puget Sound is gorgeous. It wasn't even windy out on the observation deck (not like the Eiffel Tower!) so we spent some time enjoying the view and trying to find our parked car down below. The funniest thing about our trip was that the only time it rained in Seattle was when we went to Kerry Park take a Space-Needle-view photo-- but more on that later.

The best momento from the Space Needle? This photo: Before you go up, they take a "complimentary photo" of you with a green screen and once you're at the top you can choose your background and email the photo from up top. Naturally, David chose the most hilarious one. The Santa is kind of huge and creepy, but that's probably why he chose it. Oh, David. Happy Holidays!

  4. I want to go to Seattle so badly but I don't think I'd be able to visit the Space Needle. I am so beyond terrified of heights I don't think I could even get half way up. Sigh.

    I love your picture with creepy Santa, just love it.
