Chad and I walked Luna to Seattle Center this weekend mostly to enjoy some sunshine and sit and watch the local kids play in the fountain there. Before you think, 'That's kinda lame', just wait. This isn't your run of the mill smallish fountain with a steady, unintimidating flow. No. This is something from a another planet; even the thing itself looks like a spaceship recently landed in the middle of Seattle. It intermittently shoots water from all sorts of weird places, but the main attraction comes from the four spouts on top that with no rhyme or reason suddenly shoot jetstreams of water hundreds of feet into the stratosphere, then with a burst of air shoot them higher until they fall with a thunderous crash back to the concrete and onto the heads of the tiny kids below. It's fantastic fun and so hilarious to watch. We sat there for a good 45 minutes, mostly wishing we'd worn our swimsuits. Next time, fountain. Next time.
You'd think this was 'full blast.' Not quite....
This kid sees the steam. He knows - STAY BACK! She's about to blow!
It's about here you could hear the high-pitched screams of little girls... and probably some boys, because:
...what goes up has got to come down. BOOM! So. Awesome.
Yet another point for the city of Seattle.
And p.s.: the corn dog stand near the fountain has *super* tasty dogs.
