On a warm summer evening after work, we took a ride on Seattle’s new Great Wheel. While it is no London Eye, there is something nostalgically retro and romantic about a ferris wheel.  Located on Seattle’s downtown waterfront off of an old wooden planked pier, there was a mix of locals and tourists young and old, lining up to catch clear sky views of the gorgeous city and its surrounding waters.  Although we did not plan it, we happened to catch the sunset during our ride {4 loops} and caught the spark of electric blue as the orange red sun disappeared behind the mountainous horizon.  Before summer slips quickly by, why not take a spin around the ferris wheel?  It will make you giddy.  Have a wonderful weekend!
