Olympic National Park
After my last blog post, I couldn’t resist adding a more personal view of the Washington coast. While framing this sea stack shot at Rialto beach, a wave drenched my “water resistant” shoes.
Sharing a vacation more than doubles the fun, provided that you enjoy the same things. Photography, companionship, sun, sand, sea, snacks and sea stacks, all else is irrelevant today.
A walk down Third Beach, which is also the third beach we visit. Is Strawberry Falls, a horsetail waterfall from an unnamed creek, still running this year? I can see it!
And here is Strawberry Falls closer up, dropping gracefully into the Pacific Ocean. Promontory rocks form a scenic point that fishermen avoid.
The rocks at the point bear witness to our change in direction and retracing of steps. The sun is heading towards setting and the light is changing.
Onward into the bright sunset! Even in the middle of summer, Olympic National Park’s beaches provide freedom from crowds and respite from civilization. We will return.
