Seattle Pier 57 Ferris Wheel

You see some pretty cool stuff while walking dogs. Like this view of the just-about-completed Seattle Pier 57 Ferris Wheel.

I took this shot while walking the two big Akitas on the Bell Street Pier. Someone told me the wheel’s opening June 28. Don’t quote me on that. Quote “someone told me.”

One of the cool things (as if being a giant Ferris wheel wasn’t cool enough) about our new waterfront attraction in Seattle is that it’ll have thousands of LED lights.

So, if the Sounders are playing that night, the wheel can be lit up in the team’s colors. And that’s not a “for instance.” That’s something they will be doing — along with similar tributes to the Seahawks and Mariners.

Red, white and blue on the Fourth of July. Orange and black for Halloween. Looks like they’ve got a lot of fun possibilities.

My mom’s coming to town in July. And, yep. She’s already put a ride on the new Ferris wheel on the itinerary!

Orange Space Needle Catching Everybody’s Eye — Even Our Dogs!

Yesterday, we wrote about our world-famous Seattle landmark, the Space Needle.

For those of you who don’t live around here, the Needle is orange on top. That may not seem like a big deal to you. It’s just that we’re used to seeing it white.

But orange on top was the Needle’s original look once upon a time. So, the Needle got a makeover last week in honor of it’s 50th anniversary.

The new look is certainly catching the eye of Bella and Niko, the two beautiful Akitas who live close by that we often walk around the Space Needle.

They haven’t shared their opinion (with me, at least) about the Needle’s new “Crayola” shade. But when they do, I’ll pass it along right here!
