My friend, Myra, who lives in downtown Seattle near the Space Needle invited me to go see the Westlake Center Xmas Tree Lighting yesterday. She has a wonderful view of the water and Harbor Avenue across it on Alki.
Because I'm still relatively new to the city and because I mentioned that I had never ridden the Monorail which passes by her building, she suggested we take it down to the Tree Lighting. I was smiling like a 10 year old riding an amusement park ride for the first time!
The tree lighting was fun too. There was a couple of choirs and Xmas carol singing. And then right before the lights were to come on, the sound went out. But they were still able to do the count down and light up the tree.
I got to wear my La Chapeau hat for awhile but it was actually not cold enough to wear it so it didn't stay on much.
