More Beach!

I know that I said this post would be the Hoh Rain Forest but after coming home and looking at the pictures, I just had to do one more beach post. The rain forest will be tomorrow.   On the second morning we took a walk to a spot called "The Hole In The Wall".  You can only get there at low tide.  During high tide it is too far out in the water.  There are wonderful tide pools out there.  I hope you will enjoy one more day at the beach! By the way, if you are a "Twilight " fan, I have a few fun photos at the end.  The setting of the series was Forks , WA  the town where we stayed.  If you are not a "Twilight" fan , just stop after the last beach photo and thanks for joining me!


 At he beginning of our walk it was dark and foggy.  It is about 11 AM. This weather is very typical of our Northern Coast actually the whole west side of the Olympics.  The mountains block a lot of rain from the Seattle area.



We are now at the "Hole In The Wall."





I thought it was interesting to see the action of the wind and waves on rock!

  Looks like a heart to me!


 There was lots of the pink algae.  Or at least I think it was algae.

The Hole In the Wall!


 On our way back, the sun came out very briefly and the ocean turned a beautiful blue!!

 On the wall of a store, on the way to La Push (home of Jacob) .

This was the area where the Native Reservation started.

Thank you so much for joining me.  Tomorrow will definitely be the Hoh Rain Forest!!

  10. Love the beach pictures too but my favourite ones are the Twilight photos - not because I`m a fan but because it`s great to see the locals` sense of humour. It made me smile :)
