Where Gumbo Was #15. Seattle's Space Needle, enjoying the view of Puget Sound

WITW 001 View from the Space Needle, Sunset over Peuget Sound


Seems Gumbo timed a visit to Seattle perfectly.  When Gumbo took the elevator up to the observation deck of the iconic Space Needle there was a thunderstorm passing through.  But after a cup of coffee (Seattle is well known for its fine java), the storm broke just in time for Gumbo to enjoy this sunset.  There's a Washington State ferry cruising across Puget Sound to Bainbridge Island.  The photo didn't take puzzle ace WorkerBee too long to figure out.  Enjoy that time in Spain, WorkerBee and bring back lots of photos and info to share!

From the Space Needle, if Gumbo looked Northwest, he could see part of the harbor...

If Gumbo looked due north from the Space Needle, there was this residential neighborhood.....

And to the northeast was Lake Union and the I-5 Freeway...

But most beautiful of all was the great view of downtown to the south of the Space Needle.  The soft light of the setting sun made this a view to remember.....

Sure fooled me!


I've been in parks bordered by high-rises where you'd never guess you weren't way out in the woods...but this is astounding!

The best part of every trip is realizing that it has upset your expectations
