What do you do in Seattle for Valentine’s Day? You take your sweetie for a helicopter ride! This 40 minute adventure took us as far away as Snoqualmie Falls, 25 miles from the City, which houses a power plant. I have several thumbnails below, though it was not a great day for picture taking.
We saw the total destruction of U of W Husky Stadium (they are rebuilding it), the “Ballard Locks”, which provides a link for boats between the salt water of Puget Sound and the fresh water of the Ship Canal, which connects eastward to Lake Union and Lake Washington. You can also see a birds eye view of Sculpture Park, where we walk the dogs everyday and right next to that is the condo we live in (the double building with the red arches at the top).
We did get to see the house where Bill Gates lives, but it was too hard to capture with the camera. Also, we flew past Century Link Field, where the Seattle Seahawks play, and directly over the Mariners baseball park. Oh, and the picture directly to the right of the falls? That entire group of office buildings is the campus of Microsoft. It was as big as an entire neighborhood.
We had a great time, B was surprised and we will do it again this summer when the sky is clear. (you can click on each image to make it bigger and scroll though them).
Have a great Sunday!
