Just walking distance from the Seattle ferry terminal, the Seattle Aquarium, Pike Place Market, and retail shopping in downtown Seattle, is Seattle’s waterfront park.  The latest addition is the new ferris wheel, along with vendors sprinkled amongst whimsical sculptures and impressive fountains.   One of the sculptures my daughter, and other kids, found fascinating was this Waterfront Whimsea sculpture.  “Commissioned by the Metropolitan Improvement District’s (MID) Waterfront Neighborhood Marketing Committee and crafted by artisans at Seattle’s Iron Design Center, the sculpture was designed to act as a nautical-themed centerpiece for visitors, residents and workers who make their way past the piers. The sculpture is one of the MID’s efforts to activate and beautify Downtown Seattle’s public spaces.” Here’s more info about the Waterfront Whimsea sculpture.
