Yesterday, while in Seattle, we did a few of the touristy must do’s: Space Center, Pike Place Market, seafood down on the wharf and the Big Wheel ride. A ferris wheel is about the extent of my ‘thrill ride’ capabilities…a step above a Merry-Go-Round…my inner ear barely tolerates turning around too fast let alone more exhilarating gyrations. So the Big Wheel was a safe, interesting ride. Not given to fear of heights (because we were safely ensconced in a 6 passenger capsule) the ride was enjoyable. The smoke filled skies, from numerous wildfires to the East, obscured distant views. But, it was still an enjoyable event.
