Seattle’s Stunning Waterfront

Seattle’s waterfront was a pleasant surprise. Instead of the not too pretty, industrialised setting I imagined, it was actually extremely attractive.

After spending plenty of time pounding the hilly streets, wandering amongst skyscrapers and trying unsuccessfully not to be a law-breaking jaywalker, it was a refreshing break getting in touch with Seattle’s softer side.

Just take a look at these lovely scenes I captured on my waterfront walk…

A peaceful ocean view.

 A yacht reflecting serenely in the water.

A very natural looking man-made beach.

 A distinctive piece at the Olympic Sculpture Park.

A boat returning to harbour.

Canadian geese and ships in the background. 

The building of the ‘London Eye of Seattle’ was in progress when I visited back in June.

Downtown seen from the waterfront.

The cruise liner terminal. 

The waterfront view over Pike Place Market. 

Some flowery settings.

 Have you ever visited Seattle’s waterfront?
