 Thanks to all of you for visiting my blog and for all the great comments about the lavender!  I hope your week-end is going well and you are enjoying the Olympics.  That was quite an opening ceremony. Yesterday afternoon we visited the Dungeness Spit.  This is another place where I fell in love with Washington before we moved here.  The summer before we retired, we spent a week out here in Sequim.  We visited this spit everyday when we could find the time. We now go up there every so often.  We were lucky enough to find our Lighthouse Beach-Point No-Point- so we don't have to go this far to be near the water.  This is about 1 1/2 hours from our house. It is still beautiful and closer to the mountains than the beach at Point No Point.  I hope you enjoy seeing this lovely part of our state. 

 Here we are!

 You walk this heavily wooded path of about 1/2 mile to get to the beach.

Isn't this an amazing tree?  The SBA is taking a brief break so I can take his picture.

 We are still high above the spit. This is the beginning of a 5 mile sand spit.

 Far across the water is Vancouver Island.

This lighthouse is at the very end.  If you are up to a 5 mile walk (5 miles each way that is)  the lighthouse is open to the public. 
 We were up there for the first few photos.

 The beach is full of amazing drift wood.  They ask you not to take any from this beach. This whole area is a National Wildlife Reserve. 

Isn't he cute!!! and what a great sport!

If there weren't so many clouds, you would see the Olympics coming down to the shore.
Thanks so much for joining me.  Enjoy your Sunday!
