Rhapsody in Blue – Sculptures, Eagles and a Mountain in Tacoma!

Yesterday we visited Tacoma and found everything blue!

Outside the Art Museum was a sculpture by Marie Watt: Blanket Stories: Transportation Object, Generous Ones, Trek;

and nearby was the Chihuly Bridge of Glass.

At Ruston Way the blue sky merged into the bay

where we saw harbor seals playing

and bald eagles overhead.

And by the end of our walk, the mountain emerged from the clouds and hovered over the city.

It was a rhapsody in blue!

  1. Very beautiful photos, Susanne! The Chihuly glass is always beautiful, he has a wonderful display overhead at our Bellagio hotel in the main lobby. Probably elsewhere in Las Vegas too. The mountain is so impressive, it’s got to be over 12,000 feet!

    • Thanks so much! Chihuly is from the area so there’s a couple museums that display his works here. And Mt. Rainier is 14,411 feet high, just a bit shy of the tallest in the contiguous states (Mt Whitney in California is 14,505.)

      • Your welcome. The highest peak here is Mount Charelston at 11,916 feet. There is an active ski lodge up there which is really pretty but I’ve seen it only in summer. I won’t expose my mint 7 year old truck to road salt!

  2. Love it! Blue is my favorite color. I especially liked that first picture, so different! And of course, Mount Rainier.

  3. Beautiful blues! I love the seal and eagle, and it’s wonderful of course to see the mountain 🙂 Plus that sculpture looks interesting.

  4. I’ve only been to Tacoma once—before moving here a few years back. i need to return. it looked interesting and in need of a proper exploration. Thanks for putting it back in mind…

  5. Amazing photos! I was immediately drawn to the picture of the soaring eagle, and the last one is truly captivating!
