2018 Yearly Return to the Northwest Part 1, Olympic Peninsula

 2018 Trip back to the Washington Coast, So much to tell and so little time while preparing for our KICK STARTER!! 

We made a great circle and made time for our favorite spots along with a few new discoveries. We visited our secret sand dollar spot, Ocean Shores Coastal Museum,   Hoh Rain forest,   Rialto BeachCrescent Lake,  Olympic Game ParkSan Juan’s,

Hidden Find
Mom is in heaven when she gets to walk along the beach and collect sand dollars.
Ocean Shores Damon Point
Gathering “special rocks”
Lake Crescent
Stopped for Lunch and found a adventure at Crescent Lake. I always try and plan lunch somewhere that will also provide a little activity. Today we were going to like to a waterfall, however we saw the lake. It was such a fun spontaneous activity. Rented two Canoes for an hours and everyone had a turn around the lake. The water was so clear you say the reflection of the canoe in 50 foot deep water. After our Canoe trip we did some swimming and skipped our sand dollars. Someone might just find a few sand dollars on their canoe trip.
Hole in the Rock
Early Morning walk on Rialto Beach to Hole in the rock. We love the Northwest and especially the cool coastal weather.

 

Making a Fairy House at #Seabrook   Another Accidental/planned find.  As usual before the trip I had reviewed all the Geo Caches in the area.  This one looked fun so one day while driving to Ocean Shores we stopped.  We loved exploring the old forest the stumps, caves and crevasse.  Everyone enjoyed using the natural material around to create a beautiful fairy house, complete with a garden and well.

The Olympic Game Farm in Sequim was a rather expensive (for us) stop. but ended up being worth it. First, plan plenty of time, you can drive through again and again. In the summer there is a small petting zoo but for us the best part was seeing the animals.  We loved feeding them! But also liked observing their behavior and talking about the differences.  It was really exciting to have the Elk and Buffalo eating right out of your hand and sticking their snouts in the van.
