South Beach to Makah Bay, Olympic Peninsula
Sunset at Hobuck Beach

Hobuck Beach

It stopped raining for about five minutes so we went for a walk on the beach. Glad we brought the GoreTex. Here's our spot at the Hobuck Beach campground:

When we first got here, there was just the older Airstream there next to us, a small small generic trailer, a newish fifth wheel, and a super sketch motor home with a bunch of junk outside and torn curtains. It made me have second thoughts about staying here, but since then maybe 4 more newer trailers and motor homes arrived and now the place doesn't feel nearly as sad. It's amazing what the clientele will do for a place's image!

The beach is prettty but it was mostly raining so I didn't take many photos. Here's what I got before it started raining:

More kelp...there are PILES of it all over the beach:

Hobuck-12

Okay and we probably saw fifty or so WHOLE sand dollars on our short walk. This is DEFINITELY not like the beaches in California. :)

I love the perfect little star in the middle of this one:

I'm roasting tomatoes now and I'm going to make some roasted tomato and garlic soup for dinner, along with a couple of duck legs confit (I brought them, frozen...don't worry...I'm not making my own duck confit in the Airstream tonight) and a salad. Nice warm meal for a cold rainy night. We finally have gotten on campground Wi-Fi, so we may watch the second episode of Orphan Black. The first one we watched last night was quite good!
