Vacation 05' Long Beach...

This boardwalk extends for almost a mile and meanders through the salt grass across the dunes. It is a pretty neat thing. Has benches and drinking water fountains every couple hundred yards. I bet it's a great place for some storm watching.

Another look at North Head from across the dunes.

Long Beach, WA looking South towards the point that North Head light, sits on.

A few years ago a whale had washed up on the shore, dead. They buried it in the sand for a couple, three years to let nature strip it to the bones.. These they dug up and put them together for for all to see. A very nice bronze sculpture graces the spot.
