I must admit that I love the beach. When I eventually stop my travels, getting a place near the beach so that I can walk along the shore on a daily basis is something that I would love to do. There is simply something incredibly intriguing on how beaches change with each storm and all of the wonderful things that can be found while wandering the beach (obviously this doesn’t include the increasing amount of trash and plastic).
Beach #1 at Olympic National Park at Kalaloch was one of those wonderful beaches to explore that had so much more than sand and surf. The beach was protected by a line of trees on the hill above the dunes. Below the trees at the top portion of the beach was lined with driftwood that ranged from huge trees to small pieces as far as the eye could see. Below the driftwood was one of the largest assortments of perfect skipping stones that I have come across in all my travels. The beach was mostly the perfect sand beach that you imagine visiting, but sections had the skipping stones mixed in making a wonderful contrast. Here are a few of the photos I took that should make you want to take a visit as well:
