After flying back to Seattle, I left our heavenly spot in Gig Harbor and headed over to the WIN gathering at the Quinault Casino in Ocean Shores, WA. We parked right along the beach. It's too bad the weather wasn't good most days, but we still had a great spot. This is the view looking towards the ocean on a good weather day.
Looking out my back bathroom window, I can see the water! And almost for free! (It's free to stay here during the week, and just $5 a night on Friday and Saturday nights.)
You can drive on the beach here, but weekends can be pretty crowded.
It might be better to go on horseback.
Gulls are everywhere -
Picking up the remains from what the tide brings in.
A couple years ago there was a big tsunami in Japan and tsunami debris has been floating in here off and on ever since.
On the way to our next spot, we stopped in the neat town of Raymond.
Lots of rusty stuff here, including these street cleaners.
