A few weeks ago I went to Sammamish State Park, which is located at the southern end of Lake Sammamish. I was expecting some peace and quiet for a picnic but instead encountered the annual Issaquah Triathlon. There were seriously fit people everywhere. It is pretty motivating to see people in a triathlon although it is never quite motivating enough to overcome my apprehension of the swim leg.
In any case I was able to find a few quiet spots in this big park.
Greenery around the lake. Green grass is something that you see less and less in Canberra.
I'm really keen to try some kayaking or paddling in some kind of water craft while it is summer here so I'll have to rent something like the kayak above. Those folks weren't all that adventurous though and didn't make it out to any sort of deep water. I think I'll have to find some kayaks to rent on the bigger Lake Washington instead.
