July 23 Jonny and I went downtown Seattle. We really just walked around… and of course rode the ferris wheel. It was a nice relaxing day! We even got matching shirts and sweatshirts, haha! Madi broke it in though and spit up all over mine.
The Seattle Great Wheel, a ferris wheel in Seattle, makes the waterfront an even more amazing place to visit. In a city known for its scenery and abundant sightseeing tours, this is another amazing way to soak in the classic Pacific Northwest views. Plans for the wheel have been underway for 30 years, but the first cement wasn’t poured until early spring 2012. The end of Pier 57 is the perfect place for the Seattle Great Wheel that stands 175 feet high. When each one of the 42 gondolas reaches the westernmost point of the adventure, it’s suspended right above the sparkling waters of Elliott Bay on the Seattle waterfront.
