Travel Diary: Seattle Day 3 - Antiques & Wall of Gum

January 17, 2016 (Continued): Walking back from the dock near the waterfront, I stumbled upon an interesting antique store, full of mid century modern vignettes and the creepiest looking life size Mickey Mouse statue I’ve ever seen. Seriously, the photos doesn’t capture the eeriness I felt coming close to it.

Having some time to kill before dinner, and I being in close proximity lead me to the infamous tourist attraction, the Gum Wall. It had actually been recently cleaned for the first time in 20 years but had already started accumulating a mass of chewed up gum again. It is an odd thing to be known as an attraction but I guess I like odd things, still, it was pretty gross thinking I was standing near a spit mountain, as displayed by my face below.

Across from the wall of gum, was something I was more inclined to stand near and see - a great wall of art! It was fun to study it piece by piece, trying to figure out what message was being stated or creative expression being shown.
