Hiking at Bridle Trails State Park and Visiting Downtown Kirkland

 Since Summer is flying by and it will be back to school in a few weeks, our family is trying to get the most out of summer. So we decided to do a little hiking in Kirkland at Bridle Trails State Park. This state park is built on 489 acres and has 28 miles of trails. Equestrians and hikers are welcome. We were hoping to see horses on the trail, but no such luck. The trees were tall and beautiful and 105 years old. The air was so fresh and the sunshine felt good. We did a loop trial and only walked for about thirty minutes. You do need a Discover Pass to visit, or you can do what we did and pay the $10 fee. 

After walking, we drove about ten minutes to downtown Kirkland. We stopped in at Zoka Coffee for a pick me up. We had a Lavender Mocha and an Orange Cranberry Scone. Then we walked about a block or so to the waterfront park called Houghton Beach Park. It was fun watching people doing watersports in Lake Washington and the views across the water of Seattle were nice. We had such a relaxing time in Kirkland soaking up some summer!
