Photo Friday: Seattle’s Chihuly Museum

Last summer after our cruise, my daughter and I spent a gorgeous day together in Seattle. We took the monorail from our hotel to the Seattle Center to see the Space Needle, the Chihuly Glass Museum and Garden, and then the Children’s Museum (highly recommend – pretty spectacular).  Here’s a little more about Dale Chihuly himself.

    Isn’t his stuff just so amazing? I love it. I recognize some of the pieces from the installation at the NY Botanical Gardens several years ago!

    Stunning photos! The outside installation is amazing with the contrast of nature and these vivid colors. Those shades of purple! And, love the chalkboard message.

    Thanks, Caroline! The colors are so vivid and vibrant and they way he weaves shapes together is fascinating. I could have stayed there all day if it weren’t for my daughter pulling me along and out!
