Sunday Driving

April 24, 2006 1 comment
On beautiful days like this – 73 degrees with clear blue skies and a cool breeze – Tracy and I love to take car rides around Lake Sammamish. It’s a peaceful 23 mile drive with very few stops and with the sun roof open on my Audi the sun feels great. Half way around the lake in Issaquah is a Jamba Juice, a great and healthy refreshment: a perfect compliment to a day like today. With speed limits ranging from 30 to 35 miles per hour there’s plenty of opportunity to enjoy the scenery like you can find below.
Western Washington is truly beautiful.

I convinced my brother to start a blog and so he has. It’s been a blessed month (actually, a couple of weeks) for him so check out his recent news: a new job, a new house, and a new baby!

More Photos from My New Office

Today was a bit clearer than before so I snapped a couple extra photos with a great view of Mt. Baker and some of the snow-capped peaks of the Cascades. Take a look here if you want to see the intersection in one of the photos. From there you can zoom out and move around to get an idea of just how far these majestic mountains are away, as well as the rest of the Microsoft main campus.

My New Office

April 12, 2006 Leave a comment
With only about a year and a half at Microsoft, I have enough seniority to get a window office in building 41 – one of the taller buildings that sits in Bellevue with a taller height cap than in Redmond, up until recently. That means I get a nice view the higher up I am, and being on the side facing the Cascades the view is very nice, indeed!
