It was a rainy wet afternoon and I was still in full recovery mode from my surgery, but since my brother was in town for the holidays I was determined to get out of the house and show him the sights. My brother was really interested in seeing the Disney Concert Hall and we both thought it would be fun to check out another Frank Gehry building (he was also the architect for the Experience Music Project in Seattle). I had to walk all hunched over like an old lady, but I somehow kept up and had a nice time. Looks like all that walking in the hospital was paying off. I did, however, test out every seat/bench in the place and I can assure you they are all quite comfortable.

Nothing like standing in the rain to get your picture taken.
My Seattle roots must run real deep since I didn't even think to bring an umbrella with us this day. It's funny, Seattleites don't use umbrellas. Ever. It would be permanently affixed to their hand if they did.

Inside the concert hall itself. I'd love to come back someday and see a live performance. I'm sure that would be amazing.

We were taking the self-guided tour.
We got to listen to these little hand-held devices that would educate us on every detail of the concert hall. Very informative. Unfortunately Gavin kept hogging mine.
And no, the walls are not pink inside....just looks that way from my little point and shoot camera.

The city view from the garden.

Our budding musician.
Maybe someday he'll perform in this very concert hall.

It's an amazing building and I'm glad to say that I have finally seen it. If you're ever in town I think it's worth a stop. The gift shop here was fabulous too.

Wow, seriously, what a trooper you were Darcy--out and about so soon after your surgery! Okay, I am embarrassed to ask this, but where is the Disney Concert Hall? I should no this since I am from here, but alas, I am clueless! lol
