Lest you think I spent all that time on the coast and never saw the beach, here are a very few photos of beach time.

Hubby and I went with our daughter and her fam.  It was late afternoon, and we were looking direct into the sun.  The sun was extremely bright, but the beach was also extremely cold and windy!

Truth be known, by this time I had a sore throat, and didn’t particularly care to get the settings right on my little power shot camera to take photos.

But it was fun to watch the grandchildren play, and I am always mesmerized by the ocean!

Beach Walk – Fort Worden State Park

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient.

One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.

A Walk on the Beach

The spring afternoons have been so beautiful!  Hubby and I took advantage and went for a walk on the beach. 

I thought I would share a little bit of that walk with you.


Sunlight streaming on Lake Roosevelt.


The willows are coming out of dormancy.

That’s me.  Hubby thought you should have some perspective.  Those willows are big!

This driftwood looks like snakeskin!  This is great texture inspiration for free motion quilting!


A gorgeous afternoon!  Just look at that blue sky!


Someone built a home in the willows.


Probably not whoever made these tracks!


The crocus weren’t at the beach.  They greeted us when we came home!

The boys greeted us too.  Four cats wanted some attention.

Here’s one of them:

Wonder what he was thinkin’?
