Dungeness Spit, Washington

Monday, May 7, 2007

sunny 0 °F

After spending yesterday trying to catch up on chores ('trying' being a key word), we pack up this morning (again) and start our drive to Sequim Bay, Washington, along the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

The day starts out cloudy but by lunchtime the sun is shining and it looks like we're finally going to have a warm, sunny day. So we pull into a Wal-Mart to pick up an item or two. When I return to the truck, Jere's nowhere to be found, but Joe and I hear a hissing sound coming from the truck. Jere returns to tell us we have a nail in the truck tire and he's just made arrangements at Wal-Mart to get it fixed. So we finally have a beautiful day and we spend the next 2 hours at Wal-Mart :-(

We finally get to Sequim around dinnertime, eat dinner and then head over to the Dungeness Spit for an evening walk. It's a nice area by the ocean, with a view of a lighthouse and snow-covered Mt. Baker in the background. Jere spent much of the time on the spit watching a Navy submarine coming through the strait. He worked on projects with Navy subs for many years, so I think he has a soft spot for subs.
