waterfront

It can be quite busy on Seattle’s waterfront.  Shipping and industry, ferry’s coming and going, people milling around and enjoying the scene, chowing down at one of many restaurants, the infamous Pike St. market close at hand.  I was actually able to get this photo while sitting in the ferris wheel car waiting to be let out.  It’s hard to get a clean shot from inside the car as there is often a reflection coming right back at you.  But this one came out clean.

Seattle is very much a waterfront city.  Wandering around there at any time of day is a lot of fun, but I especially like the night time.  I was there last summer for a wedding and since our hotel was only 3 blocks from the water I broke away for an hour to do some exploring.

Though it’s not your amusement park thrill ride, the new Seattle waterfront ferris wheel is great for viewing both the city and the Puget Sound.  I wish it were more open where you could rock your car back and forth almost to the point of flipping.  But, this wheel’s cars are modern, all glassed in, safe.  Just right for viewing.  Anyway, it’s the NW and its rains a lot.  So, maybe it’s a good thing they’re all closed in?

I’m from the Northwest, but when I went up to Seattle last month for a wedding I was completely surprised when strolling down on the waterfront by this monstrous contraption of a ferris wheel!  It’s only a month old.  Everything about it is huge, right down to the bolts, or whatever they’re called, holding it on to the dock.  You wouldn’t want it to come down in one of those big NW wind storms.  One of the workers said it was the 3rd largest in the world.  We couldn’t help but go up in it.  In fact, we went up twice!  I just had to go back at night with my tripod and take a few shots.
