Seattle’s Big Wheel…

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.

Seattle’s Gum Wall…

Not sure which is worse: that it is there, or that we were there to take a look at Seattle’s Gum Wall in Post Alley beneath Pike Place Market. On a typically busy Sunday, we were not alone in that bustling section of town. Seattle folks are probably as tired of reading about the Gum Wall as I am about Portland’s Voodoo Doughnuts. Mediocrity rules at times…yet there we were. Fortunately, it was not the Gum Floor too.

The alley way walls are covered in many colors of chewing gum some eight feet high and fifty feet or so long and quite crusty (gooey/thick) in spots. And, of course, several family members chewed away on gum and then contributed to the germ depository called The Gum Wall.

The Gum Wall was apparently inspiring to an artist at Gum Wall as she convinced her bikini clad friend to be painted dabs of chew gum colors. Standing next to the Gum Wall the good natured friend/model blended into the gum mosaic…kind of.
