Another sunny day at the beach in the middle of winter along the Washington coast. There’s nothing quite as nice as a winter beach walk in the sun.
I sorta wish I knew who these two were, but I was shooting with a long lens and had no way to contact them. I’m sure they would have used this for their Christmas card, or something.
A beach walk on a winter day on the beach at Kalaloch can be wet and windy, or you can get lucky and have a sunny day and mild weather. But there’s always stuff to see.
Kalaloch is in Olympic National Park. It includes a lodge and rental cabins, which are available year round. If you stay in the small lodge, one of the fancier rooms includes newspaper clippings from when First Lady Laura Bush stayed over.
Of course, the crowds are much thicker in the summer … and the weather is more chancy in the winter … well, I guess it’s more predictable: it’s likely to be raining. But with luck, you can get sunny weather in the middle of winter. The coast here is remote. There’s not a large city for a couple hundred miles.
The sun is setting on 2021 … and can’t say I’m all that unhappy about saying goodbye. Political craziness, pandemic restrictions, loss of loved ones, and the list goes on. Not that there weren’t good times… but here’s hoping that 2022 raises the bar a little bit on the ratio of good/bad.
