This weekend, we took Maggie out for a (child-free!) road trip, circumnavigating the Olympic Peninsula. The weather was only sort of cooperative – it didn’t rain, but it wasn’t particularly warm and sunny either. It’s a beautiful trip, and the winding road along the coast is a lot of fun to drive – I recommend it!
Maggie at Crescent Beach, just west of Port Angeles, with the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island in the background.
Sekiu, Washington – further along the road west. Again, the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Vancouver Island are in the background.
Maggie at Neah Bay, Washington, with Cape Flattery in the background. Neah Bay is the center of the Makah Indian Reservation and there’s nothing much there but a marina.
Highway 101 South hugs the Pacific Ocean for several miles; this is Kalaloch Beach.
We stayed at the Quinault Beach Casino in Ocean Shores, and both dinner and breakfast were good (if slow). The room was quite comfortable, and just beneath the balcony was this very pregnant deer.
