we are tied to the ocean
& when we go back to the sea
whether it is to sail or to watch
we are going back from when we came
John F Kennedy
We spent the last 5 days
in Olympia State Park.
First we hiked 3 miles into Sandpoint ..
part of the Ozette triangle
spent 3 days 2 nights ..
then on to Sol Duc.
Olympic National Park
boardwalk into Sandpoint
first things first
.. set up camp ..
the sea will grant each man new hope
and sleep will bring dreams home ...
the ocean is a mighty harmonist
camp food lifesavers
1. MaryJanes Farm backpack meals
.. very delicious if I do say so myself
organic & full of wonderful tastes
Anna & I love the Couscous & Lentil Curry
John & Dawson love the Chilimac
You can purchase them at REI
but I found better selection on her website
and since there were 4 of us we got the "farmhouse" size .. serves 2 easily.
2. Starbucks instant coffee
hits the spot first thing in the morning
no mess ••• no fuss
3. packaged oatmeal
+ trail mix
+ fresh picked delicious Salal berries
the least movement
is of importance to all nature
the entire ocean is affected by a pebble
beach combing finds treasures of all colors and size
live in the sunshine
swim the sea
drink the wild air
Ralph Waldo Emerson
play is the only way the highest intelligence of humankind can unfold

You can't have photos of the Olympic Peninsula
with out one of the beautiful yet not always loved slug.
This fellow is stretched out to about 6 inches.
