Somes the Unexpected is the Trip Highlight

At our lunch in Plaza Garibaldi we were tossing around what we wanted to do for the rest of the day.  Go back to Pike Market for a few things, go to the zoo or up the Space Needle?  We were not sure how long King Tut and the science center would take so we had not made any plans.

We settled on the Chihuly Museum since it looked interesting and was right up where we had been.  What a great decision it was, Chihuly ended up being one of our favorite trip activities!

The Chihuly Gardens and glass is located almost under the Space Needle. We had seen a little of the glass installations in the garden as we passed on our way to the Science Center courtyard entrance.  They looked really interesting which helped in our decision to visit.

I had seen single pieces of Chihuly but never a large collection like this.  I loved the bowl room where you sat under the glass ceiling.  And in the garden area we walked it in one direction, and the walked it back the other direction.  You always noticed something new!

Plaza Garibaldi in Seattle after King Tut for lunch

I had purchased as many Groupon and coupons that I could find for our Seattle trip.  Near the Space Needle and Pacific Science Center we found Plaza Garibaldi on  It was a quick couple of blocks down hill to the restaurant for lunch.

Since it was a Friday the place was pretty quiet and we were quickly seated.  My Mom and I had large burritos and daughter had nachos, she dislikes Mexican food.   We saved room for deep fried ice cream of course! (Dessert helped us meet the minimum spend on the certificate. LOL!)

The food was very good! Service was quick and the only downside was the full belly walk back uphill to the Space Needle.
