The Segway tour went down the Seattle Waterfront towards the commercial and tourist areas of Elliot Bay, and the Segways glided past the Aquarium and more.

Time to stop and listen to some history of Seattle.

Time to cruise around on the Segway and the two RV Gypsies' did their own thing for a bit.

Geoff was wonderful. He was an excellent guide - so full of great information and very happy to share. It didn't feel like a conventional tour. Geoff was real easy to talk to and his main goal was to make sure everyone had as much fun as possible. The two RV Gypsies felt like they had a new friend. And they plan on taking Segway tours with some of his companies in other cities.

Karen Duquette did some free-wheeling and enjoyed the thrill of being on a Segway again.

The two RV Gypsies returned to this and many other areas after their Segway tour to get more photos and history. More about the fountain and the Olympic Sculpture Park shown in the two photos below, plus the Space Needle, art and more can be found further down on this page, and also on this site's main menu for Washington state by using the link at the bottom of this page.

The International Fountain: Located in the middle of the campus, the fountain operates all year round. Built for the 1962 World's Fair, the fountain was built as a modernist water sculpture. With over 20 spouts, the fountain goes through programmed cycles of shooting water patterns, and is said to be accompanied by recorded world music, which is changed every month, and chosen to coordinate with the water patterns. The two RV Gypsies did NOT hear any music coming from the fountain on this date.


It was a steep incline down to the International Fountain. Karen Duquette and Geoff were the only brave ones on the Segway tour that wanted to get closer to the fountain, and even got a bit wet. Geoff is such a cool Segway guide and person.
