Back from the beach

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.

lol at "wash up"

I've been to Oregon beaches and they're very similiar (nothing like Cal beaches). I found them more interesting on some accounts. I spent more time looking a sea life rather than the freaks on the beach.

Glad you had a great time.

Glad you liked my old man and the sea shot. Ocean Shores had it's share of freaks, but they were mainly roaring up and down the beach in their cars. I'll never get used to dodging traffic while beachcombing.
