   Sunshine and warm temperatures were a welcome change for winter-weary residents. Picnics were popular, and beaches including Cottage Lake Park (above) were full of sunbathers, swimmers, and those just enjoying a walk. There were long, but patient, waits for boat launching in Kenmore and elsewhere along Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish.
