A little while back I received an early birthday present of a cruise on Lake Washington. Being new to the area I enjoyed taking in the sights from a different vantage point.
It was a gray and cloudy day. Wait a minute, I learned from our Captain that Seattle doesn’t have gray days. We enjoy silver skys! Actually I have noticed a difference in the clouds from Maine to Washington. The clouds are a definite silver color here unlike the very white clouds in Maine.
You could sit outside on the deck, it was comfortably warm despite the sky, or you could find a seat inside. Either way you could enjoy appetizers, sandwiches and drinks.
The captain kept a running monologue of local sites and historical information that was both amusing and educational.
Of course there were plenty of fancy houses to see.
And it was fun to see the underside of I-90. I know. I am easily amused.
We saw Bellevue from a new perspective.
Bill Gates wasn’t home but here is his house.
There was one family that spent most of the time taking pictures of themselves. Families with small children tried to keep them from falling overboard. They were all successful. And the rest of us just enjoyed the ride.
