Rialto Beach

Olympic Peninsula, Washington

We packed some books and headed for the beach this morning. I'm reading "Little Big Man". Mrs. Phred has "Rainbow Six" by Tom Clancy.


It's a beautiful day...sunny blue skies...about 65 degrees...we walk about two miles down the beach studying the lovely polished rocks and gigantic bleached driftwood trees...


After a few hours we have lunch in "La Push", the Indian reservation featured in the Twilight saga.

I have an Alfredo pasta with shrimp , scallops and steel head trout. Mrs Phred has fried clams, steel head trout and scallops...It's  all surprisingly good with a great view of the harbor and breakwater...


We'll be heading for Port Townsend on July 4th...Fort Worden has been turned into a State park...The old army base still has tennis courts where the officers used to play...


We would like to spend some days exploring Seattle before we head north to Alaska or east toward the Great Lakes....
