Rialto Beach

We spent a lot of time on the road.  Several hours down to the one place in Washington I've always wanted to see in person.  First we got to take a Ferry across the Puget Sound. It was pretty neat! And gave the girls a much needed bathroom break while still keeping us moving!




Flower Pink LOVED the wind in her face.




  Olympic National Park.  
Oh my word.  It is every bit and more magical as you see in pictures.  We were caught in a fog bank rolling up just as we arrived at Rialto Beach, so we didn't spend nearly enough time there as it was shivery cold and soak you to the bone wet, and didn't do any actual walking or hiking through the forest, so it is on my list of places to return to.  And it totally made up for the crazy spiders Washington has, I've been showing houses in the area to Mr. Man.  He's not opposed to it either!
I don't think I explain just how breathtaking and amazing this place is.  







 The entire beach is rocks.  Rocks galore.  We filled our pockets. The heavy mist from the fog bank helped show off the rocks.  The closer you get to the water the more sand-like it becomes.  Black sand.







 




These ain't no little pieces of drift wood.  They are entire trees.

The contrast of the lush green forest right against the barren rocky tree carcass covered shore was amazing.
