A Walk on the Beach

I had planned to blog more about Halloween today , but after a walk on the beach, I changed my mind. This was a beautiful day in the Pacific NW. It was sunny and between 65 and 70 degrees. The sky was such a bright blue! We decided to go for a walk on the beach. I blogged about the lighthouse a month or so ago. This beach is the same one that has the lighthouse. It's about 45 minutes from our house. There were very few people on the beach. For a long while we only saw a man and his dog. As you can see in the photos, there is a high cliff along the beach. This keeps houses and cabins away. It's an amazing beach to just walk along.

Notice the high cliffs.

You can walk very far down this beach especially at low tide.

It looks like the kids had a fun week-end building houses out of the drift wood.

We love to collect sea glass. In fact we have bags of it. This is a very pretty pale blue.

A pretty green!

And a fairly rare blue!

There are tons of drift wood along this beach.

The SBA(super blog assistant) agreed to pose so you could see the size of the drift wood.

He's about 5 foot 11 inches.

As we were walking , he looked up and spied this large eagle. We see them fairly often out here, but it is still a thrill. Notice the blue of the sky!

Well, I'll have more Halloween tomorrow. Thanks for taking this walk with me!
