Seattle from the 76th floor

While Mark and I were in Seattle we were invited to a cocktail party at the Columbia Tower Club. This club is on the 76th floor of the Columbia Tower Building. The view of Seattle from this height was incredible. There were windows all around. It was such a wonderful evening and I was so happy I had put my small camera in my purse. To be able to watch the sunset and to see the city lights come on was wonderful. Now this last photo needs a bit of explanation. The ladies room in the Columbia Tower Club was unlike anything I have ever seen. As you entered it was just like a nice lounge with a nice view but as you entered the stalls there were sinks and this view, I was in aw.

I enjoyed my time in Seattle so much. It is such a busy city but such a nice one. We were able to stay downtown so we did not have to drive and I think it made the experience so much better since we walked everywhere. The sights and sounds of a big city were really inspiring.


  1. Great pictures! I love Seattle too. I think I have stayed downtown the last 3 times we have gone and that has made ALL the difference. That loo is just too much, what a view!

  2. Seattle looks really amazing. I am going to San Francisco in august and am so excited. Please don't perch on the edge of your seat, you may be there sometime and I would hate for you to get cramp!

  3. Love your pictures....especially from the ladies 'loo'! I love big cities too, especially when they are easily navigable on foot or by mass transit.


  4. I love Seattle too! I have family in the area and we were there most recently in the summers of 2005, 2006 and 2007. We missed last summer and will again this year too, unfortunately. It's a wonderful place!
