Let’s See-attle (Day 1)

More travel? Yes please! I asked K if we could sleep like this while in Seattle.

While AM had to work, we took advantage of doing a few activities that she’d already done. Let’s see the Seattle Aquarium! We were greeted with the Window, a 120,000-gallon exhibit filled with more than 800 fish and spans 20 x 40 feet. That’s a tank.

Lots of variety in fish and exhibits.

Then some WTF is that tanks?!

The Underwater Dome was pretty cool. Fish were swimming everywhere. Especially when the diver came in for the daily feeding frenzy.

Except these guys.

I had to ask the why these fish were settled, not moving, and even upside down. They are called rockfish and can control their buoyancy by deflating or inflating their swim bladder. They just looked so grumpy!

Estrella, Zoltars wife, read us our prophecies. We waited for Big to happen, but we didn’t switch bodies.

Next stop was the Chihuly Garden and Glass experience. Oh man! THIS WAS AMAZING. I don’t have enough words to describe the beauty behind this man’s art creations. From the very 1st exhibit, my jaw was on the ground.

2nd room was a massive collection of pieces, shapes, and colors.

I couldn’t get enough of this room!

Chihuly Garden and Glass

I learned Chihuly was inspired by Native American colors and patterns.

Each room just dazzled us with color and brilliance.

There were bowls…

Boats full of imaginative pieces. We felt like we were in Willy Wonka’s garden!

Untitled

It keeps going….

My favorite piece, this pointy orange chandilier. Just gorgeous!

Untitled

Glass house ceiling was covered in floral pieces.

Untitled

Even the gardens and outside walkways had pieces.

The rain couldn’t stop us from having a great experience.

This exhibit is right next to the Space Needle. This neon green thing, is glass!

Mama commissioned me to purchase a piece for a several hundred dollars. Sorry Charlie. We aren’t even close!
