Visit Chihuly Garden and Glass

In the first day, we went to Pike Place Market explored Seattle by water and air!
Pike Place MarketPike Place Market is an awesome experience for every sense, it made us happy and curious with all that’s going on.. We were surrounded by weird interesting stores, local arts and crafts, great food, friendly people, talented street artists and musicians, color, flowers, artisan cheeses, meats, flying fish (!),nice view of the Waterfrontand a great selection of restaurants. What’s there not to like?
"Spirit of Seattle" Boat Cruise. Seattle Waterfront
We looked at some of Seattle’s most famous landmarks from the water. The guide was very knowledgeable in the area and the views of the cityscape were spectacular. The boat was equipped with a bar, comfortable chairs, clean restrooms, and seating outside and inside. It was a bit chilly but it was super fun!
Chihuly Garden and Glass
Located in the heart of Seattle, Chihuly Garden and Glass provides a look at the inspiration and influences that inform the career of artist Dale Chihuly.
We have always been ardent fans of this glass maestro but this was a unique experience. We were totally blown away by the breathtaking beauty of the exhibits on show.
Seattle’s “must see” is now a “must do” following the Space Needle’s multimillion-dollar renovation. Glide onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor, for never-before-seen views of the structure and the city. The lift is fun, the deck has a great view of the Downtown, Waterfront, Mt. Baker, Mt. Rainier and the base of the tower.
A ride on a ferry
There it is, fog, atmospheric moisture still uncertain in destination, not quite weather and not altogether mood, yet partaking of both.
On the way to Andre's dream
Olimpic National Park. In the Hoh Rain Forest
Walking on Spruce Nature Trail in the Hoh Rain Forest feels like passing through a living green sanctuary.
The Northwest is like one giant campground. So many sights to see!
We entered Mt. Rainier National park at the Paradise ranger station and walked the Skyline Trail. The hike was strenuous, but the Alpine views made up for the effort.
Breathtaking views! We felt we were dreaming, but we were wide awake!
