Space Needle

Brrr!  It is chilly and rainy here in Seattle, and I have just finished lunch at a restaurant that moves in a circle, so you get a different view of the city all through your meal!  It is the SkyCity Restaurant on the Space Needle, which was built for the World’s Fair in 1962.  The restaurant is 500 feet up, almost the top of the Needle. At the very top is a blinking light to warn airplanes away, and 14 lightning rods to send the lightning to the ground during a storm. Part way down the Needle is an observation deck where you can see the city below and the mountains and Pacific Ocean in the distance.  I was very glad it had elevators, and I didn’t have to climb the 848 steps to the observation tower! The Space Needle is a very special landmark, and one of the highlights of my trip to Seattle!    Purrs, Gulliver
