Today, my husband and I continued our Matthews Beach walk in the rain. We walked all the streets between Sand Point Way and Lake Washington from Matthews Beach Park to NE 105th Street. This neighborhood has a hill rising up from the lake to 49th Avenue NE and then leveling off towards Sand Point Way.
Along our 4 mile walk, we encountered a pair of chickens walking across a lawn and some impressive lake views. Lots in this area are larger than those on older parts of the city and the area north of the park includes expensive homes on the lake. One block from Sand Point Way, the streets are quiet and have a suburban feel.
