My Swedish neighbors have a lovely drink called Glögg, we have Gløgg in Norway. So imagine my surprise when I found out there is a Møgg, in Tacoma!
Then, imagine my slight disappointment that getting a nip of MOG was more a visual treat. But a treat nonetheless.
This wonderful tribute to Tacoma's native Dale Chilhuly and the art of glass-blowing, is along the Thea Foss waterway, it started as an idea in 1992, and blossomed into a working hot shop and museum in 2002. Outside, they placed public art works and displays. I hear the waterforest is missed, but may come back ... to the delight of parents as it was the first 'spray park' in this city of destiny.
Here I am waiting for an elevator:
I believe these giant grates are part of the cooling system, but they are artistically presented.
And finally, me outside the hotshop.
I understand that some of the Tacoma Public Libraries may have passes that card holders can check out to attend the museum. Though that could be an old rumor.
While there, I was repeatedly asked (same at the park earlier) if I worked for some sort of travel company. Alas, no, I would be nice to be paid for travel, but now I travel on my own krone.
Until next time,
