Here is my picture for today-Thursday, October 30, 2008. I took this picture this morning at 7:00 a.m. from the deck on the back of my house.
It was pretty cold and foggy this morning with a haze that stretched across the lake. I am usually not up this early to capture such a sight-so today I seized the opportunity. The weather in Seattle is pretty unique and you never know what to expect in regards to the day to day weather. Having lived here only one year I never know what each day will bring. It may be sunny and warm, rain drenched, or cold & damp. All I know is you have to be prepared for all types of climate.
I also snapped this picture at Juanita Beach further down the lake from my house. I was on my way to the Walgreen's in Kirkland and stopped to take these shots.
The array of colors of these trees lets you know that autumn is here. During the summer Juanita Beach is packed with people who love to hang out here. They even have a outdoor farmers market on Thursday evenings.
If you look back to the west you can see the homes that are on the shoreline of Lake Washington. At the bottom of the Lake Washington is Juanita Beach & where the lake winds around to downtown Kirkland. If you are lucky enough to have a boat you can dock it downtown and enjoy a meal or some shopping. Close by is downtown Bellevue, which has a lot of the same attributes as downtown Seattle.
