More Exploring

The Chinook Winds Casino here has a very nice seafood restaurant with a great ocean-side view. We resisted eating out yesterday but this morning the breakfast menu was calling us. I had the Dungeness Crab Benedict with Salmon Hash. It was delicious! While we were eating this seagull walked up to the window and looked in for a while.

It’s still overcast and sorta foggy but we enjoyed a walk on the beach after breakfast. Only a few other people were on the beach too.

Yesterday we drove north on the Pacific Highway 101 so today we explored south. We saw this Tsunami Debris Watch sign with instructions what to do with debris that you find washed up on the beach. Bag it up and leave near the trash cans, but don’t take it home.

“D” River claims to be one of the shortest rivers in the world, connecting Devil’s Lake and the Pacific Ocean. It ranges from 205 feet to 58 feet depending on if the tide is in or out.

Boiler Bay, named for a freighter that sank in 1910….its boiler can still be seen stuck in a sandbar when the tide is out. This is supposed to be a real good place to spot gray whales, but we didn’t see any today.
