Seattle on the west coast of the USA is a great city, there’s always lots going on and for me it always has a relaxed, friendly vibe about it. My most recent visit here was to be very short. Arriving at the hotel at around lunchtime is a killer, my body just wanted to go to bed and sleep but I knew I had to stay awake, for a while at least. It was a pleasant afternoon so I decided to take a walk along the waterfront to the Olympic Sculpture Park.
The park was opened in 2007 and is a 9 acre site featuring an outdoor sculpture museum and beach. It’s a nice place to just wander around and enjoy the art and some spectacular views, it’s very relaxed and on the day I was there wasn’t too busy.
There’s some amazing pieces of sculpture in the park, here’s a selection of my favourites.
Even if sculpture’s not your thing the park’s still worth a visit as the views from it are quite spectacular of both the mountains and the cityscape.
After a few hours I’d had it, the jet lag had got the better of me so I headed back to the hotel where after a little bite to eat I snuggled up in bed and fell into a lovely deep sleep.
