Sundays in My City: Downtown Tacoma

The other day we took a little stroll through downtown Tacoma (as a side note: if you're  ever there you have to stop & get a cupcake at Hello Cupcake. It'll be the  best cupcake you've ever had :) & this is what we saw:

The view of the Chihuly Glass Museum, the glass bridge sculptures & one of Tacoma's older buildings from the Washington State History Museum walkway...

The History Museum stairs...

The cone shaped Glass Museum...

& the stairs by the UW Tacoma downtown campus


 There's lots to see downtown & there's art everywhere, kind of little, hidden away sculptures & window displays. One day we even saw a living chess tournament with giant handmade chess pieces & every week there's a tiny park where you can watch artists doing chalk drawings. It can be a fun way to spend a day, even if it's kind of gray & overcast! SAM

For everyone who's asked about what photo editing programs I use, I generally use a combination of Picasa, Irfanview & Picnik (not always all three, but combinations of these programs)

I lived in Seattle for 2 years and never made it to Tacoma -- looks like I missed some things!

I love the steps of the history Museum. Very pretty photos.

These might be the first pictures I've seen anyone post from Tacoma. Very nice.

Get me a cupcake. Please.

I've been to Tacoma several times and loved it there each and every time : )

So now I have a huge craving for cupcakes.

I love chalk art. I've never actually seen someone doing it.

That sounds like my kind of town - and those steps would come in handy during my morning work-outs :-D
