My husband and I had a Monday off together last week. I was thinking about all of the things that needed to be done around the house and yard, trying to decide what to do first. Pat had another plan that was much better, we were going to take a drive. We headed south on I-5 and headed to downtown Seattle. We have a new attraction on the Seattle waterfront, it is called
the "Great Wheel."
It was a beautiful day so the wait was an easy and enjoyable one.
The sky was a little hazy which might have been caused by the smoke coming our way from east of the mountains where they have experienced devastating fires.
We bought our tickets and were on the first ride of the day on the Great Wheel.
You know that moment in time when you think to yourself, what am I doing here and how do I get out of here? Well since I was the one with the camera I was able to get a picture of Patrick when that thought crossed his mind. I had the same thought but you will not see what my face looked like at that second.
Here we are much more relaxed and enjoying the scenery. We tried to get our heads even so that one of us didn't look like we had a huge head. I will say that Pat is holding the camera so he is a little closer.
After our ride on the Great Wheel we walked a few blocks and took an elevator to the Pike Place Market. Seattle is a city with many hills so we had the option of several flights of switch back stairs or the elevator. Going down is much easier so we chose the stairs when we headed back to our car.
This market is a very busy place and seems to go on forever.
I took a picture when no one was in front of this flower stand, that was only for a very brief time.
These are the flowers I brought home with me as a reminder of a very enjoyable and relaxing day.
