Seattle City Library
The Seattle City Library was one on my favorite places to visit. It was an architectural delight. From the outside it had the most interesting design. Inside was just a dream of patterns. I was told by a friend to head up to the 10th floor and go out onto the narrow balcony and look down. Mmm – not as far as the Space Needle look down, but my stomach still turns. However, I wanted to do it and I did.
From there we started to spiral down the flights from the 10 floor until we were forced to go back to the elevator. Join us as we walk through the Seattle City Library.

Looking to find some peace and quiet and a time for contemplation, it’s right there on the 10th floor.

The library is not your typical vacation spot to visit, but I was so glad that I did. Thank you to my friend for the recommendation. It was a treat.
You can find the blogs to the Chihuly Gardens inside and out, to Pike Street Market, the Seattle Waterfront and Ferris Wheel and Bainbridge Island by clicking on the highlighted names.
Keep a look out for more of the upcoming blogs, Seattle the city, the Columbia Building; Chinatown and Capital Hill. From there we head off to the Orca Islands and to Leavensworth.
