Beach cottage fence harvesting, and a dead sealion..

You really wouldn't believe the weekend we had here at the beach.
The air.. crisp and clear, the wind..nonexistant..the temperature, nice.. in the mid 70s possibly higher..we need to get a thermometer out there. Really.
It was gorgeous. So, bright and early on Sunday, we headed out on the traditional family fun loving beach walk. This is what we found..Waves were crisp and clear- and white. Sometimes its not that way, you know.. The Washington Coast is notorious for the "Brown Wave" lots of gunk, doesn't make for such a pretty picture, not today. Only gorgeous "Hollywood" type waves.The sky, blue as the bluest crayon in the box, along with gorgeous green beach grass. Someone would think Lisa might be a photography buff or something..
Beach cottage fence harvesting.. you will have to wait and see. Hi, my sweet little children!
"MOM!!! HURRY UP!!! DEAD SEA LION--COME LOOK!!"
oh my gosh what.have.they.found.now....eeeew..
Little smarty pants, all of them.. Maybe a petrified dead sea lion, kinda looks like a creature of the sea, but for sure-- no dead sea lion. Thank goodness.





My parents came out for a BV bbq dinner on Sunday night, fun.. Great weekend at the Coastal Nest..
What did you do?

That too me looks like the PERFECT weekend! You know what I love most about your photos???? I have been there. Your phots bring back the best memories. It's almost like being there for me. I know that sounds corny but I really loved our trip to Pacific Beach this summer and I love seeing your photos. It just makes me want to go back.
Thank you
Timi

The only time I visited the Northwest coast, it was just like your weekend. I refuse to believe it is ever not perfect there. Thanks for the pix, esp. the "sealion".
