Great Wheel at night Pier 57 Seattle

Recording starts from balcony of my room ( 416 ) at Edgewater Hotel in Seattle. I had just arrived – riding into town on Amtrak Coast Starlight from Los Angeles. My last visit to Seattle was in 2008 for Gnomedex next door to Edgewater at Bell Harbor Conference Center. The Great Wheel did not exist then.

Seattle Aquarium is in another construction phase. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to visit the aquarium. My only time inside was after a construction project in 2007. Gnomedex had a private event there that year – right after project had finished. On last night of my 2016 stay – another private event was taking place – that may have been related to LIFT Social 2015 at Bell Harbor – which I didn’t attend. I think there was also a Google conference that may have been going on.

During previous visits – I don’t recall anything being located in this spot. The engineering to support something that large on a pier might make for an interesting television show.

Cities all over world have gone Ferris wheel crazy past few decades. Chicago just replaced theirs at Navy Pier with a more modern larger wheel. Las Vegas has one. London has it’s famous Ferris wheel. Orlando Florida joined the craze in 2015. It seems like many cities have Ferris wheel envy and have to have one.
