Winter at the Beach
Here were some marvellous visits we made during the 2007-2008 winter:
December 1, 2007
There was an unusual snowfall at the beach with a dusting of snow down on the
sand. Up on the bluff, people made snowmen. The snow lasted just that afternoon -
long enough to enjoy, but not long enough to delay anybody's travel home.

A storm the previous night and a high tide combined to completely swallow the
beach. The seagulls moved into the Pacific Beach State Park RV campground and
the sandpipers dodged the foam on the last small strip of sand. The waves kicked

On a day trip north of Moclips, we had dry weather all day with a high overcast at
Kalaloch and Ruby Beach (1 1/2 hour drive one way) and sunny inland by Lake
Quinault. The Kalaloch Lodge's restaurant was near empty, leaving open the table
by the best picture window to enjoy the lodge's fantastic view of the river gorge,
log-strewn beach, and ocean.

the beach to Copalis Rock, further across the Copalis State Airport (on the beach), to
the bank of the Copalis River, and back by sunset. As long as I kept moving, my feet

Another sunny day on the beach on a day trip to Kalaloch Beach 2 and the Hoh Rain
Forest (2 1/4 hours one way from Moclips). We saw a bald eagle on the beach and
200+ foot long logs. Hardly anybody was to be found on the beach or in the rain
forest. The forest had a very light rain, which was appropriate to the scene.
