They weren’t quite in full bloom but I’m still happy I got to see them :D

Coffee.

If Disney were to ever do a modern, real-life rendition of Rapunzel, this water tower in Volunteer Park would be the perfect set location for Rapunzel to let her hair down. 

While the windows were barred (I felt like I was in a sort of luxury prison), there’s a 360 view of Seattle at the top. I saw Lake Washington, downtown area, the mountains and of course, the Space Needle (you can’t see the Space Needle in a panoramic view if you’re in the Space Needle).

At the top there’s some really interesting placards about the Olmsted Brothers and their company, who are responsible for lots of park and school campus designs. I never visited any of their other places nor do I really know anything about architecture but I remember there was a good amount of reference to Boston area; Harvard University, Brookline, Wellesley, Newton. Funny how some things come full circle. 

Come fly with me, let’s take off in the blue.

There was a moment where I mentally developed a full proof, four-point plan to relocate and live in Seattle’s public library. In another life, I would have been a fantastic nomad. 

Fun fact: I took both pictures at a Starbucks.

I’m not a particularly huge fan of Starbucks but I know I am most productive in a cafe/coffeehouse and Starbucks just has that refill/WiFi/bathroom/rewards benefit.  

The first picture was taken at the Starbucks right by the Pike Place Market and is NOT The first Starbucks. I don’t even know if there is a passing resemblance between this Starbucks and the real one, because the real one was actually “moved” to this location. I object - this is distortion of the truth. 

The second was taken at a Starbucks on the 40th floor of Columbia Center.  If you Google search observatory decks in Seattle, Columbia Center will probably pop up. I’m all about views and city lights, but I chose to pay for a coffee instead of a ticket to get a decent view.
