We just got back from a couple of nights at a resort near Ocean Shores, Washington. It is clear, hot and blue everywhere else in the state, but somehow the beaches of Washington are perpetually a watercolor gray.
Most of Washington beaches are incredibly flat. You can easily get the impression that you are standing on the edge of a great, liquid desert.
But still, the beaches have their own beauty that shifts with each wave.
And even the inevitable dead sea creatures become temporary sculptures.
You never know what will wash up on a beach.
