Photo of the Day: Chihuly Glass

Our Glacier National Park vacation started with a couple of days in Seattle and an Amtrak ride to the park. Seattle has so much to offer, but my favorite site was the Chihuly Garden and Glass Gallery at the bottom of the Space Needle. I believe it was a temporary display, so I can’t say whether it’s still there. We actually went twice in one day – once in the afternoon and once after dark. Dale Chihuly is the guy who designed the glass work in the Bellagio in Las Vegas, if you’ve ever been there. His art is absolutely stunning, don’t you think? Have you ever seen his art in person?

Day 152: Souvenirs, Parte Due

If you aren’t familiar with it, Venice, Italy is known for their Venetian/Murano glass. We went to a glass factory with figurines, glassware, and sculptures for hundreds to thousands of Euros. Needless to say, we didn’t buy anything there. We did find another authentic Murano glass shop with these beautiful earrings that I just couldn’t resist. Jerod actually convinced me to buy them and helped me pick out the color.
