This is Idylwood Park. Located on the shores of picturesque Lake Sammamish, the wife and I stumbled upon this park after driving from Microsoft to meet some Singapore friends there.
It was an unusually sunny day in Seattle, more used to rain and overcast skies. The wife flew in to join me in Seattle and I guess she brought some of our Singapore sun here too.
We spent a pleasant time just enjoying the view and the scenery.
Did I say we visited Microsoft? Yes, some friends met us there and we toured the place which was buzzing with Windows 8, Surface and Halo 4 activity. Yes, I played some Halo 4. I may need to dust off the Xbox 360 when I get home.
Of course, I could not resist opening my blog on the browser. Hey, I do it to Apple Stores, so why not the Microsoft Visitor Center, right?
We drove our Hertz rental car (a Toyota Prius, 2012 model!) to the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks. The Ballard Locks was built in 1911 provides a link for boats between the Puget Sound (sea water) and Lake Washington (fresh water).
Stay tuned for more driving adventures as we drive out to Canada from Seattle. The Canadian city of Kelowna, BC next!
