We headed to Ocean Shores, Washington to the Western Horizon park there. It's a huge park with most of the sites buried in the trees with nice and flat grassy spots. We found a nice private site where we could put up the dish so we could watch the Mariners play ball. The only problem with the park is that they do not have sewer at the sites and the honey wagon is out of order with no plans for getting it repaired. No problem, we seem to make it work with whatever we are offered. We spent about a week there and then moved down the beach to another park for the remaining time.
We toured various ocean beaches for long walks and gave C C a chance to get out and run, and let us tell you she really enjoys running on the beach. Now why is the back seat of the truck covered with piles of sand?
We drove around the bay and headed to Westport to visit Dick's sister, Doll. It was Saturday but she works 7 days a week this time of the year. She and her husband, Dave own and operate Cachalot Charters and the local kite and gift store. We caught her relieving her employees so they could have lunch before she headed back to the Port Office for her full time job. Thanks Doll for the two birds; we will get them in the air when we get back to some place where there is wind.
If you are ever in Westport make sure you stop at Cachalot charters and say hi for us. And if you need a kite to fly at the beach, that's the place to go.
We did catch Dave, who just came back from a day fishing and it was great to see him again. Thanks for the fish Dave. Not only did we get some fish from him, another boat was selling fresh tuna, if you haven't had fresh tuna right off the boat you are missing out.
With the minus tide we spent an hour or more just walking and enjoying all there was to see. A little overcast but with a light jacket it was great to just enjoy our time together.
The plug got pulled on the marina on this day.
