If you haven't ever been to the Washington (or Oregon coast) then you are missing out! The beaches are HUGE and WIDE and you feel like you could walk forever.
Another neat thing about certain parts of the Washington coast is that you can drive your car out on the beach. Since the span from road to water can be quite a trek with chairs, picnic, toys, etc, taking your car out onto the sand is a fun way to go. Wee-boy thought that was pretty funny.
Jamie Oliver; pesto salmon in a foil parcel. Delish. This is wild Alaskan sockeye salmon, which is why it is *so* beautiful and dark pink.
In the morning, at low tide, we wandered down to the water's edge for some beach combing.
