Exploring Washington Part II

Last Sunday, we went to downtown Seattle to visit Space Needle. Space Needle is a 520 feet building built in 1862 and became the symbol of Seattle. The Space Needle had the second revolving restaurant in the world. The first one was in the Ala Moana shopping mall in Hawaii (now closed). There are now hundreds of turntables throughout the world. The original name of the Space Needle was "The Space Cage." The original name of the restaurant was "Eye of the Needle. When you visit Seattle, you have to go see the Space Needle, otherwise you could not say that you have been here.

A picture taken by my husband from the top of Space Needle. The view is awesome, breathtaking! The beauty of the lake that surrounds it just magnificent. You can see the Snow-capped Mt. Rainier to the south and the Cascade Mountains to the east, the majestic Olympics to the west. You can also see cruise ships, cargo ships and ferries cruising along Elliot Bay.

The view is just endless. You could see the beauty of Seattle from the top of this building.
