It's not the white sand and warm waters of the turquoise blue Caribe.
It's a different beach with tall pale green grass on sand dunes between the water and condo. Clouds hang at the coast where the cool temps off the Pacific Ocean meet the warm summer air of land.
When we lived in Washington State, we rarely visited the seacoast because we craved warmer temps and turquoise water in Mexico. Now that we live in the Desert Southwest with baking summer heat, there's an attraction to the cool temps and foggy shores of the Northwest! We spent a short weekend earlier this month at a beautiful condo overlooking this scene.
One morning we walked the docks of the marina in nearby Westport, WA. I love these colorful floats! I might have to print and frame this photo.
Fishermen use these crab pots stacked on the dock to collect Dungeness crabs. The photo makes me crave another Crab Louie.
Boats in the harbor at Westport.
I got a quick Zen fix relaxing to the sound of crashing ocean waves for a couple of days.
Too bad the sun had to set on our weekend at the Washington shore.
