Seattle Space Needle

Wednesday, March 20th is Date Night at the Seattle Space Needle. We had a spectacular time on top of the world in November. As the world revolved around us, we enjoyed a delicious dinner!

It was a magical experience to see the city at twilight, a romantic sight. From the observation deck, we watched the day turn into night, taking pictures of the panoramic view of Seattle.

I felt regal wearing my mother’s Diane Von Furstenberg wrap dress for the first time in my life (which now belongs to my daughter, Jean).  She let me wear it and I felt like Queen for a Day! We were seated by windows in the elegant restaurant.

Night fell as we savoured our meal, and the city lights looked like a horizon of tiny glowing candles.

After dessert, I had to change back into my own clothes (I felt like Cinderella at midnight). Then we drove to the airport, homeward bound for Canada.

A night to remember!

      Thanks for stopping by! I know you have a tower in Finland – Näsinneula tower, in Tampere which was built in 1970-1971, inspired by the Seattle Space Needle! I was born in Stuttgart, Germany, the city that has the original, first TV tower – the Fernsehturm (opened in 1956), and I grew up in Toronto, home of the world famous CN Tower. I have always loved the views of cities from these magnificent towers!!

      Have a great weekend!

    Oh, I remember the dress! Ms DVF wanted to buy it back from your daughter! So glad she said no. It looks gorgeous on you!

    How beautiful Seattle, I’ve always wanted to visit that city, it is one of those things I’d like to do someday. You look beautiful in this dress, I had seen in on Jean, but the dress for you is great. The print is great and the design also. The most elegant woman in the restaurant, sure …

    It’s so fun to have dinner at the Space Needle! I remember more about the view and the company, but by my recollection the food was pretty good, too.

      You’re so right! The breath-taking view and people we eat with, stays vivid in our minds! I had a delicious vegan dinner and I took a picture of it, also took a picture of the dessert … so, that’s another reason I remember it so well. I’ll add those two photos!
