Volunteer Park is just a stroll down the avenue from my daughter Jean’s eco boutique Drizzle and Shine. This is my favourite purse from her store. Love the fringes!
On the way to the park we passed an elegant century-old mansion, now the luxurious Shafer Baillie Bed and Breakfast with superb hospitality. But that’s another story, or rather, another post.
In the park stands this unique water tower, built by the Water Department in 1906, looks like Rapunzel’s tower.
We climbed up the circular stairway to an observation deck. They had an art exhibit of some kind.
This Black Sun sculpture is referred to as The Doughnut, looking through is a spectacular view of the Seattle skyline including the Space Needle. Volunteer park has a beautiful dahlia garden and meadows.
The Asian Art Museum is in the park
Here’s a gallery for you to browse through.
And my favourite in the museum–The Indigo Room–the colour that changed the world. Everyone who wears jeans will appreciate this colour.
The sound was rather eerie but added to the experience.
Time to walk back to Jean’s store and tell her about our adventure.
Then off to No Bones–World’s first plant-based Tiki Bar with a beach atmosphere–where we enjoyed a delicious dinner with Jean’s famous friend the Vegan MacGyver.
Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed the tour!
