La Push, Washington

Wednesday, September 25

Sunshine!  What a difference from yesterday!

1-DSC00483 - CopyI park the PTV in the lot facing the bay at La Push.  This location is not far from Rialto Beach.  Look how blue the water is in the bay!

1-DSC00485You can always tell a commercial fisherman.  He can stand up in his boat and operate the motor.  He moves across the water and he doesn’t fall out!

To the south of this bay is a magnificent beach.

Before walking through the rocks to the beach, we come upon this duck.  Bridget and Spike are so excited I can hardly stop them long enough for this photo.  I don’t know what it is with me and ducks lately . . . Or maybe this is a goose?  Gosh, I should know the difference.  That’s kindergarten material . . . first grade at the latest.

1-DSC00489Okay! The beach, the beach!

1-DSC00544The crew and I walk its complete length.

1-DSC00526These photos aren’t in the correct order, but, hey, what does order have to do with a walk on a beach, right?

1-DSC00515Occasionally a cloud blocks the sun, so some of these photos are dark.  It’s sweatshirt and long pants weather, not too cold for me or for the two nut cakes.

1-DSC00514I walk Bridget and Spike toward the surf.  Of course, they’re both clueless, having little experience with ocean waves.  I get the camera ready to catch them scooting away from water that takes them by surprise.  Spike doesn’t hurry.  Hey, what’s a little water, he says.

Well, wasn’t that exciting.

1-DSC00510These next photos show the enormity of the logs scattered on the beach.  Look closely at each photo and you’ll find two little rat terriers.

1-DSC00512Bridget and Spike are my handy, four-legged props to give proportion.

1-DSC00516One more . . . I know, I know . . . I’m fixated on this mammoth piece of wood sculpture!

1-DSC00519Now we go from huge to tiny.  If I can’t tell a duck from a goose, I’m certainly not able to identify this . . . this . . . this little thing in the sand.

1-DSC00509The beach edges a cove.  At the end of the beach, my attention is drawn to the waves crashing against rocks.

1-DSC00551It’s fun trying to catch the most dramatic moment.  Crash, waves, crash!

1-DSC00547Some of you may be thinking . . . Gee, enough with the photos!  Get back to telling stories!  Where’s the info on RVing?  Is this blog going to be an endless travelogue?  I want to learn about boondocking!  Golly, how many waves do we have to look at, for crying out loud!

1-DSC00541Put a good camera in her hands and it’s photos, photos, photos!  Give me a break!

1-DSC00538-001Well, dear reader, please bear with me.  The crew and I are traveling through magnificent scenery.  I want to capture these sights and experiences.

It won’t be long before we camp in southern California and Arizona in order to keep warm through the winter.  We won’t move around much.

I’ll have time to write stories about the adventures of the bone-headed boondockers, one human and two canine!  There surely will be exciting stories about trips to the grocery store, tense moments over dumping the waste tanks, and funny anecdotes about the dumb things I do.  No shortage of material for the latter!

1-DSC00532At the far end of the beach I let Bridget and Spike run around loose.  They aren’t bounding, sprinting, jumping kind of dogs, so it doesn’t make much difference if they are on-leash or off.  We walk together like people do.  I enjoy their company throughout every day, wherever we may be.

1-DSC00503By the time we return to the PTV, Bridget and Spike are exhausted.  I drive down to the La Push Marina.  I leave them in the PTV while I walk around.

1-DSC00570I don’t know why these fishing boats are in dock.  Is it because of high seas?  Are they in for repair?  Is the fishing off?  Have their owners given up?

This next vessel is in fine shape.

1-DSC00567And this one is ready for covert operations.  I bet the skipper of this ship wears camo, doncha’ think?

1-DSC00568I admit, when the crew and I get back to camp, we eat and hit the sack.  All three of us sleep for a couple hours.  Sea air will do that to ya.’

Tomorrow we leave Mora Campground, Rialto Beach, and La Push to move southward.  The weather is in charge of our days.  No matter.   It can be stormy or calm, drizzly dark or sunshiny bright — I love, absolutely love, the vagabond life!

    I will never, ever say “enough of the beach photos!” I am hooked on this part of the country now and I’ve never been there. Love the huge mountain with trees on top out in the water. AMAZING piece of drift wood!!! Love the waves and the rocks and the salt air that I can almost smell, almost taste just from your photos! I’ll be sad when you move on…like I am when you move from many beautiful spots…but I can’t wait to see where you end up next. Have to say though, this was pretty spectacular. It felt like you were on a vacation! And that we got to go along. THANK YOU!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      You’re welcome, Dawn.

      You know, you’re right. These past few weeks have seemed like a vacation. A vacation within a vacation, because that’s what my life is.

      It’s good to know you’re a reader who hasn’t tired of the sea photos, although I suspect some are missing the other types of entries. I’m like you… I love all this. That’s why I can’t stop taking photos of it!

    • Susan in Dallas says:

      Ditto what Dawn said!

      • Cari in North Texas says:

        Me too!! 🙂 Living so far inland, I always thrill to see photos of the ocean and coastline, and yours are breathtaking. Like you said, you’ll be parked soon so you can do your writing. Who knows if/when you’ll be returning to this spot? The size of that one driftwood tree is amazing – thanks for including the crew so we can get a true perspective!

  2. Barbara says:

    Traveling is a wonderful experience. You will always have the photos to remind you of those wonderful times, regardless of what happens in life. I hope I get to enjoy this experience someday in the future.

  3. gingerda says:

    I won’t tire of seeing all your pictures, either. You take such gorgeous shots. I also get a kick out of all your commentary that goes with them.

  4. Brian says:

    Hi there. Did the crew drink seawater while you were at the beach? I’ve often wondered if dogs would dislike the taste of salt water. Great blog and pictures, safe travels to you and the crew.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Brian,

      Thanks.

      No, neither one of them would drink the salt water. Spike drinks water more often than Bridget. It rains so much around here that he easily found pools of rainwater in depressions in rocks and logs, like I showed in yesterday’s post.

  5. John K - Mobile, AL says:

    I’m glad to see the beach pictures, those trees and waves are really something! I haven’t been out that way since the early 70s. Maybe one day soon….

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, John K,

      Oh, it would be great if you could come back here after forty years. It would be quite a change from Alabama.

      BTW, thanks for letting us know your location.

      • John K - Mobile, AL says:

        It sure would. I just revisited Yellowstone after 50 years!!! Not much new there though…hehe!

  6. Val R. Lakefield On. says:

    Fabulous pics…so clear on this I Pad that I feel like I’m there. Zoomed in to see the crew looking so cute beside that huge log pile. Great shot of the goose/duck. Safe travels, can’t wait to see where you go next….

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Val,

      Good to know the photos hold up to scrutiny on an iPad. Thanks for the compliment.

      We’re not leaving the Pacific just yet!

  7. Xavier says:

    Nice day on the beach … I am probably completely off but I would have guess a cooked stone crab for that unknown semi buried animal …

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Xavier… I don’t think you’ve commented before, so welcome!

      The color does make it look cooked. However, they were in many different places on the beach, none cracked or damaged in any way, which I would expect if cooked and eaten. I didn’t want to disturb them. Every one was that side up.

  8. carol from Olympia, Wa says:

    It’s a goose, and the top of a crab body.
    I love your pics, so glad you are enjoying our beautiful state. Weather can be
    unpredictable in fall, sunny or rainy. I look at the
    skies each morning and pray for good weather for you.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Carol,

      I do believe you’re correct on the goose. See my reply to Xavier re the shell. It does look like a crab body.

      Thanks for the compliment on the pics and I appreciate anything you can do to bring clear skies. 🙂

  9. Sue, the duck/goose is a Canadian Goose and the shell is a Dungeness Crab back shell. You’re in our back yard! Beautiful photos!

    Juley

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Juley,

      Well, you’re not the only one who says it’s a crab. I didn’t realize Dungeness were so small (less than 3 inches across). I wonder why they all were embedded in the sand like that, always back side up, not like trash on the beach.

      So I wonder if the goose is a female or a juvenile or both.

      Thanks for the compliment on the photos. Glad you like them!

  10. Gaelyn says:

    Once again I have to thank you for sharing one of my old stomping grounds. A friend taught school in La Push for many years and I visited often. Used to love how storms rearranged the ‘furniture’ on the beach.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Gaelyn,

      I’m glad to bring back memories of your visits here. The logs are like beach furniture. . . very handy.

  11. Connie & Mugsy (MN/AZ) says:

    I don’t think that’s a Canada Goose as they have black heads with a white bit near the bottom of their bill. There was a whole gang of them crossing the road when I was on my way to the gym today. They had traffic both ways stopped as they went along at a parade walk in single file… from a little pond on one side over to poop all over a few people’s yards.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Connie,

      I take it you’re not a fan of the Canada Goose. 🙂 Could it be a juvenile? Hmm…

      • Connie & Mugsy (MN/AZ) says:

        I thought it might be, but when I googled photos, the head starts turning black before all those flight feathers show up. And no… I’m no fan. Many call them feathered rats these days as they have taken over so many parks and walk paths and even mall parking lots. Big birds leave giant poops… everywhere. If sidewalk pooping was an Olympic event, they would win hands down. Then while you are trying to dodge the poop, and the adolescents sleeping on the sidewalks, you have the parents hissing and attacking you. The mallards and other ducks stay in the water… they don’t occupy an area, cover it in poop, and attack all who enter.

        • rvsueandcrew says:

          I didn’t know the “dark side” of the Canada goose. It sounds like too many in the wrong environment… well, an environment that used to be okay, but now there are people living in it. I can see where it would be a problem, not to mention scary at times.

          To me they’ve always been a harbinger of autumn, flying south in V formation over my childhood home in northern NY state.

          From your description I gather that the Canada goose is more territorial than mallards and ducks.

          • Connie & Mugsy (MN/AZ) says:

            They are lazy birds who have figured out if they invade a park, there are humans who will feed them… and there are no predators or hunters to be found. It is not that they are territorial so much as that they have adopted the city life to raise the kiddies. And they are very protective of their babies. (I hiss back at them) Fascinating creatures, but their pooping everywhere can get tiresome pretty fast. I too have always loved watching them migrate both ways from ND/MN area. In fact this year I was driving from MN to ND during the peak – in mid April. The sky as far as I could see in all directions was large V’s of honking birds… a mix of different kinds. Quite a sight to see and even growing up in this part of the world, I had never seen anything like it before. This went on for a couple hours.

  12. rvsueandcrew says:

    I think I found it! It’s a Greater White-Fronted Goose! See the photo at this link.

  13. Jeff says:

    Goose kinda looks like a greylag. Or perhaps a domestic goose gone wild.

  14. mockturtle says:

    Glad you are enjoying our beautiful state! 🙂 Did you see any puffins on the rocks? Last time I was at La Push there were puffins but it might have been in the spring. Great photos, Sue! Spectacular shots.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, mockturtle,

      Thank you! No puffins, no seals. . . It must be the wrong time of year.

      No puffins, no seals… It must be the wrong time of year.

      • Anne H says:

        If you want to see the most seals, sea lions, and elephant seals on the Oregon coast – check out Simpsons Reef (Cape Arago – a few miles south of Charleston, Or). Simpson reef is home to thousands of pinnipeds – you can hear them barking as you drive up to the overlook. The south Oregon coast is spectacular! Lots of sea stacks and tide pools and water gardens to explore at low tide. Might be a bit chancy this late in the year (could run into scenery obscuring fog), but if you have time, it’s definitely worth it.

  15. Pat Hall says:

    Hi Sue, love the pics. The waves always amaze me and I plan on spending the winter on the Oregon coast this winter to enjoy them. I am working as a camp host a.nd so far really like it. Enjoy southern Cali and Az this winter………

    Pat at South Beach State Park

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Pat,

      You should see some powerful waves if you spend the winter on the coast of Oregon. I’m glad there are people in this world, such as yourself, who find camp hosting enjoyable. I wouldn’t last a week.

      I hope you have an outstanding winter at South Beach!

  16. Caroline near Seattle says:

    Ah, hah, so those blue sinkholes I saw over the Olympics indicated a beautiful day afterall !
    Fantastic photos, Sue! You’ve really captured the WA ocean experience, from the driftwood, to the surf to the seastacks and even the fishing boats.
    If the next 2 days are as as nice as predicted, please stop and smell the roses, or surf in your case. Don’t rush down 101 and pass up some great scenery. You’ll get to AZ soon enough. Safe (and scenic) travels ….

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Caroline,

      Thank you. I know I’ve only experienced a small portion of all things Washington. I do feel like this loop around the state has given me a good introduction though.

      Gosh, when I think of it all… from Spokane, across the dry land of golden grain, the green water of the Tieton River, snowy Mt. Adams, Takalach Lake, the road to Mt. St. Helens, Spirit Lake, White Pass, Hood Canal, the best fresh fruits and sweet corn, wild blackberry pie from Chimacum Cafe, trendy Poulsbo, the ferry ride from Kingston, the beach at Edmonds, Spike soaking in Puget Sound, the fog horns of Port Angeles, sea creatures, crab cakes, rocky seaside cliffs at Salt Creek, serene Crescent Lake, a rainstorm, Olympic National Park camps, rainforest (ferns, huge trees, moss, and ghastly banana slugs), wild Rialto Beach, sea stacks of La Push, fishing boats, the waves of the Pacific . . . and there’s more to come!

      • PNW alison says:

        I think you’ve managed to get a pretty good overview of the state! You’ve got some pretty great high points. I’m glad you love it as much as we do.

  17. Cinandjules (temp in CA) says:

    Wow. Your photos capture the thunderous crashing of the waves. The tree is awesome!

    That is a Dungeness crab. Did it have legs or was it just the body? They moult. They are the best tasting crab! I checked out the fish markets here and all the crabs are from wa state. Ahem. $9 a lb! Crab season down here (sf) is around thanksgiving.

    Have a wonderful night!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, cinandjules,

      You solved the mystery for me… the shells are from molting!

      The crab cakes I ate in Port Angeles were delicious… mostly crab, rather than breading soaked in crab juice. The flavor was exceptionally good. Most of the crab I’ve eaten has been those big legs of king crab. Dungeness is entirely different.

  18. Nickie (OR) says:

    You will find a lot of empty crab shells all along the coast here in Oregon. It looks like the one that you found was empty too. A lot of times you will also come across the broken off legs. Beautiful pictures! We spend a lot of weekends at the coast, and never tire of its awesome beauty!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Nickie,

      What a resource you have for splendid weekend get-aways! I’d like to stay here for a couple of weeks because, like you say, I would “never tire of its awesome beauty.” I want to come back and see the Pacific coast in springtime.

  19. Diane says:

    Dear Sue, Had to say to you …Your photos in Rialto, tree and waves in La Push are fabulous! Your abilities are growing with leaps and bounds, especially Rialto Beach shots! I love this for you. You can tell your apreciation for the Natural Scene through them. I’d say Happy photographer. Thanks for sharing them with us. Please… no apologies for shooting the things that catch your eye with such excitment. Shoot the waves all you want. Go girl!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Thanks, Diane.

      Yeah, the Rialto Beach shots were the best. I had the camera setting wrong on some of the La Push photos, so they aren’t as clear.

      One thing I love about photography is it enables me to take Nature home with me. I can take my time appreciating the beauty of a breaking wave, for instance… something that’s gone in a second.

      I appreciate your encouragement!

      • This new camera seems to have a much higher shutter speed setting than the other camera! This is why you can really capture all the water drops falling from the speeding cresting waves! Good Job to both you and to Mick, you for composing such great photos and Mick for supplying the means to capture such stunning images! I am enjoying this journey!

  20. mary strasser says:

    I was going to say , “Duck, duck, GOOSE”, but you already got that info. Yes, don’t be in a hurry to leave this beautiful area. It’s a long winter in AZ. Just love the photos.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Mary,

      Like I wrote, it’s all about the weather now. It determines how long we stay. I have to consider also that a lot of the campgrounds I want to camp in (mostly in OR) will close at the end of October.

      I’m glad you like my photos. It makes photography more fun when you have an appreciative audience!

  21. Linda says:

    Coming out of lurkdom to say how much I am enjoying traveling along with you! I love all of the photos, and camping tips are a wonderful bonus!

  22. Mindy Reed says:

    Great photos and yes goose and crab…LOL. Your at the famous La Push beach! Vamps and Werewolves galore made famous by the Twilight series. It’s also part of the Quileute rez. Lots of wonderful NDN history there. The PNW beaches are all magnificent and unique, I love every one of them very different from the Atlantic and even Southern west coast beaches. Have you been to one at low tide where they have lots of tide pools – stunning sea life to be photo’d.

    Enjoy!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Mindy,

      No, I haven’t seen the low tide pools of the Pacific coast. Both afternoons at the beach were at high tide or near high tide. Today the crew and I will drive through Vampireland (Forks). I skipped investigating the Quileute culture while here. There’s so much to do, see and learn!

  23. rvsueandcrew says:

    Hi, Jool,

    My commentary is pretty elementary… haha. Right now, this morning as I drink my coffee, it’s “Sleep, Crew, Sleep!” That walk on the beach wore them out.

  24. Chuck Hajek says:

    Another set of gorgeous pictures! Thank you, Sue.

  25. Laurie says:

    I love all your pictures!! I live in Washington, near Seattle, and do get over to the peninsula frequently, but I NEVER tire of pictures of our coast. You have a real eye for photo composition, Sue! I wish we would have been on one of our Scamp adventures while you were here and that we might have run into you and the crew somewhere along the road. I can’t wait to see where you go next! If you stop along the southern coast, Long Beach and others just north of the Columbia River, you will see completely different and beautiful ocean shots. Take care and enjoy!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Laurie,

      What nice compliments! Thank you. I’m looking into Long Beach and trying to decide how we will enter Oregon, too.

  26. New Mexico DesertHawk says:

    No! Ya’ can’t have too many neat photos. Especially Beach scenes.

  27. I am loving your pictures. I never get tired of West Coast Pictures and living in Oregon, we spend more time at the Oregon Coast. There are state parks here open year around. I hope the parks you want to stay at are open for you when you get there. We will be in Newport a month from now. Look forward to more pictures as you go down the coast.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Betty,

      You remind me to check closures before choosing destinations. I’m glad you are enjoying my photos. I’m certainly having a grand time taking them!

  28. Jean/Southaven, MS says:

    I love the photo. I get to visit that part of the country while I am at work and it lightens my mood. The area is beautiful. The colors are wonderful. I love the Pacific Ocean. The water may be cold, but it is beautiful to look at and the waves can be very dramatic, much more so than the Atlantic. Keep wearing that camera out!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Jean… Thanks for the feedback and compliment. I see now why people love the Pacific . . . I’m enchanted by this coast.

  29. DesertHawk - Las Cruces, New Mexico says:

    Your have really been doing a great tour of WA state. So many great photos, neat places. It has taken me several days to catch up with your trek.

    Yesterday, I got back to where you spotted ‘the’ first Elk in the Mt. St. Helens area. Back in ’86, we saw a herd or herds in the Tillamook area. If I remember correctly some of the New Mexico elk were brought into the state from Washington.

    We did a fly up to Fairbanks in July to see our son & his family. Three little granddaughters was the treat. Stayed 3 weeks & got to go camping with them (9 days). Son rented an Aliner for us from the Air Force.

    Finally was able to get the Scamp out for some camping, Sept 3. Just to Cloudcroft, NM, but had chest pain on second day there. When home next day. Ended up having more on Friday morning, Sept 6. Long story short, on Sept 11, I had quadruple bypass surgery. It has taken a little time to get cough up with your adventure.

    I was extremely lucky as it turned out. I’d had signs warning me for many years. But had blinders on to them. A few Good ones in March in Newport Beach, CA. A few more in July in Alaska. The ticker didn’t explode, so all was OK each time. Dumb. All need to take heed to the warnings.
    http://www.casitaclub.com/forums/topic/22125-back-home-early/

    Have been to Washington about 4 times (twice with an RV). Have found memories of the place. But you are exploring it much better than we had it seems.

    Those beaches up there are certainly different than the Gulf Coast beaches where I developed a taste to camp.

    My goal is to once more be able to do journeys with the Scamp & see more of our great country. I was granted a second chance. I am Thankful.

    Enjoying your journeys.

    • mockturtle says:

      Wow, you’ve had quite a month! So glad to hear you are on the mend and hope you continue to enjoy many camping years ahead.

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, DesertHawk,

      What a close call! And what an ordeal!

      I’m glad you went to Fairbanks and had some adventures with your family. Quite a time of contrasts for you. Thank God you went in for “repairs.”

      I like that you are looking to the future with gratitude. It’s easy to become depressed after major surgery. It comes with the territory. I’m happy to see you here and on the forum, doing what DesertHawk does… 🙂

  30. Anne H says:

    Glad you’re enjoying the coast – when it’s sunny, there’s no prettier place!
    BIG rainstorms expected over the weekend on the coast of Oregon (10-12 inches of rain) – not sure if it’ll affect you- but you might want to check the weather reports for your area!

  31. Eileen P. says:

    So, what I said last week about wanting more of the day to day? Uh…….never mind. 🙂

    Seriously, outstanding images. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

  32. dawn moore says:

    We just got home from 5 wonderful days at Moclips, a little town just south of the Quinalt Nation. I hope you & the crew get the opportunity to pass through & stop for a walk on the vast expanse of sandy beach there. You’re in a part of Washington that many residents have never seen–their loss! You captured the beauty here perfectly, Sue! Your photos are absolutely stunning. And oh yes. We’ve had several beach naps this week–they’re very refreshing, aren’t they? About the fishing boats–whether or not the boats are out may depend on what’s in season, ie what they’re fishing for, the weather, & maybe they’ve already been out & come back in. When we were at Moclips in March we had a great view of the ocean & were surprised to see several boats out at night. Not sure what they were fishing for but there they were. Happy trails as you & the crew journey south!

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Dawn,

      You’re explanation of the boats at dock makes sense. Thanks for the compliment on the photos!

  33. Gayle says:

    I remember you passing through WA last year, but I don’t remember you being as enthusiastic about it as you are this trip. If I remember this correctly, Sue, what is the difference to account for your infectious enthusiasm on this time through?

    • rvsueandcrew says:

      Hi, Gayle,

      Maybe you’re thinking of another blogger who passed through Washington last year. This is our first year here.

      We camped in Oregon last year and saw the Pacific for the first time, although it was pretty foggy.

      Maybe I didn’t sound as enthusiastic then (although I was in reality!) because of my concern for Bridget. It was difficult to travel, keep up with the blog, and figure out where to take her to a vet. The decision whether to put her through surgery weighed heavily on my mind and many readers had strong opinions one way or the other.

      I loved Oregon! That’s one reason why I’m moving southward… so we can spend some more time there.

      To read about Bridget’s injury and our Oregon camps, go to rvsueandcrew.com and click August or September 2012 in Archives.

      • Gayle says:

        Now I remember! You were pushing the stroller around Florence. You really liked Florence, as I remember it. Hope to see some pix when you hit Florence. There’s a wharf, a farmers market, a beach, a vintage downtown. Can’t wait!

  34. Victoria says:

    Hello Sue!
    I just love your posts! I have been following your recent posts for about 2 weeks now, however last night I was up until 4am reading from your very first post on your .com address, and had to make myself stop and go to bed! All of the information you have provided is so helpful for those of us planning to do the same, Thank you SO much!
    I see you are headed through Forks… If you are still in the area when you read this you may want to check out a local author there, Chiggers Stokes, and the Flying S Farm just south of Forks. He built his own Hydroelectric system over x amount of years and it is the only power source there. http://chiggersstokes.com/ It seems like something you may find interesting. My daughter and I have been to Forks and the surrounding area, but I didn’t read about the farm until after we had returned home (Midwest).
    PLEASE keep all of the Fantastic pictures coming! It keeps me (and I’m sure many others) glued to the computer screen in awe, daydreaming.
    Safe Travels!

      Hi, Victoria!

      Welcome to my blog! You gave me a chuckle… stayed up until 4 a.m.? Wow! Thank you for the compliment!

      You’ll find information in my blog posts, but the treasure trove is the comments section below each post. I’ve learned a lot from my readers’ comments. They’ve helped me over “the rough spots” so we sail through our adventures!

      Thank you for writing. Happy daydreams!

  35. We do live a wonderful life! There is just so much to see in this beautiful country.

    Sue, you post all the wave photos you want. I love them, especially since I am not near the crashing waves. Every one of them is gorgeous. I felt this way about the rock photos when we were out west. There were just so many magnificent rock and mountain photos that I needed to share so many of them.

    Wow! Those are unbelievable tree stumps. Redwoods, I assume!

      Hi, John and Pam,

      Some of the logs are red, others aren’t, so I don’t know if they’re all redwoods. I’m glad you enjoy the photos.

        The red logs are cedar. No redwoods in Forks area. While visiting Forks see the Logger’s Museum just at south edge of town. My brother Don Hutt memorialized there.

    Hi Sue,
    I wanna go there! I love the ocean and beaches. Does anyone see a kneeling elephant in the first picture? Maybe I am nuts, but I think I do! Love all of it! Patti

    Sue,
    If you go out to Long Beach take a drive on the beach. I stayed at the SP and Lily & I hiked out to the beach….way way out to the beach and way way back. Once I got to the beach I found that I could have driven out there. If I ever go there again I’ll be sure to drive and not walk.

      That’s good to know, Joy. I have to be careful how much I attempt with Spike. Thanks for writing.
