Making use again of the Hotel’s shuttle service the boys went to see the famous “Needle”
The Space Needle is an observation tower in Seattle, a landmark of the Pacific Northwest, and an icon of Seattle. It was built in the Seattle Center for the 1962 World’s Fair, which drew over 2.3 million visitors, when nearly 20,000 people a day used its elevators.
The area around the Needle is full of great architecture and next to the Bill Gates Foundation
After a light lunch in the Westlake area of Seattle the boys returned to the Hotel to fetch Lipstick and drive to the Boing Factory which unfortunately was closed due to the public Holiday in the USA – Labour Day.
Another famous landmark in Seattle besides Microsoft and Amazon is the Boing factory where those great Jumbos are being developed and built.
Thereafter the boys started to hit the road again travelling along the Highway 101 down the coastline of Oregon with its beautiful landscapes.
Late afternoon Team Lipstick arrive in Pacific City and booked into a Motel called Surf & Sand Inn. Amazingly this great place is owned by a South Africa woman Roenel who moved here a few years ago to settle down with husband and child.
Team Lipstick then went straight to the beach to watch the sun setting down over the Pacific Ocean and to quench some thirst with some of Scotland’s fines juice.
