i did not throw up,
i did not pass out,
but i did take some deep breaths
and kept my eyes on the horizon.
and it was a thing of beauty and
i am glad i dared to take the adventure.
amidst all the ups and downs
and the sheer beauty of the seattle waterfront,
i was more entranced with a small miracle beneath us.
a seagull family was trying to have some privacy
during the birth of their young.
I think they were rather confused that this thing
was finally moving with lots of spectators watching the event.
the following photo was taken by my husband
who obviously does not fear heights.
see i really did dare to fly and i survived.
i highly recommend it with the caveat that you don't look down
if heights tend to make you weak in the knees.
did i mention we went out over the water,
and yes the glass walls go all the way to the floor,
and if you are lucky
you can ride car #49
with a sea-through bottom?
