Boat Cruise on Lake Washington

It was a bright summer afternoon and I was preparing myself for a boat cruise on Lake Washington.

It was a working day, but me and my colleagues were lucky enough to be offered a cruise with the CEO on his boat.

After spending a short while at the CEO’s residence, we proceeded to the lake side of the house where the boat was docked. The boat was a beauty and I felt privileged to board it.

Once all of us were on board, the boat slowly went into deep waters, before going close to full throttle. As we picked up speed, I could feel the nip in the air, but that nip felt wonderful on this bright sunny day.

During the cruise, we were provided with great views of the Bellevue downtown skyline. We stopped nearby for lunch at an Italian restaurant, before getting back on the lake.

It was during our return that I got a close look at the I-90 bridge from underneath. The view was totally different and hence appealing.

We turned around after crossing the I-90 bridge and proceeded towards Medina, the place the biggies of Seattle call home.

The idea was to check out the most expensive residential properties in Washington state.

As the boat slowed down, all of us started admiring the various houses that were built in different architectural styles. Each palatial home was surrounded by lush green cover, had lovely lawns, a small beach and a large dock where their private boats were docked.

And Bill Gates’ house was no different. Sadly, we couldn’t get a clear view due to the thick tree cover around his house.

Overall, a great afternoon touring Lake Washington on a beauty of a boat!!
