The northwestern most tip

This weekend we went camping in Neah Bay on the Olympic Pennisula. It was amazingly beautiful - our campsite was 100 ft. from the beach - and the boys were super campers.

After we arrived and set up camp on Saturday we took a hike to Cape Flattery.

The views were amazing.

And here Ian and I are standing on the northwestern most point of the continental US (we are several feet away from a 100 ft. cliff AND apparently there was a gray whale swimming out there an hour before we got there).

The next morning we got up and headed to the beach to check out the tide pools. We saw all the typical NW stuff - the kids were most excited about the star fish and the crabs.

(I love this picture of Ian and Curt)

Then it was finally time to play in the sand and the ocean.

The beach had sand dollars everywhere - and I am not exaggerating when I tell you that Ian and Grant collected 100 of them. Also, I think about 85% of the campers at the campsite were there to surf.

The boys got to try out the new beach robes I made them - they worked perfectly!

And of course there was a fire and smores at the campsite both nights.

On our way there we stopped at the most picturesque lake - maybe we will camp there next...
