For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge I considered the beaches in Washington and decided to share two of them with you – Rialto and Long Beach. I don’t know if you could find two beaches on the same coast as different as these two!
On Washington’s wild and rugged north coast, I only discovered it a few years ago and was so enchanted, have returned many times since. A true wilderness, it has ghost trees, giant drift logs, sea stacks and miles of solitude.
But for pure fun, head south to –
The longest in the world? Who really knows! But according to Wikipedia, “The Long Beach Peninsula is known for its continuous sand beach 28 miles (45 km) in extent on the Pacific Ocean side, claimed to be the longest beach in the United States.”
Longest or not, I love visiting this gorgeous beach to walk, ride, and bicycle on its shore. You can even bring a vehicle if you want to drive in for sunset! There’s room for all!
It’s even got a kitschy town where you can have fresh donuts in the morning and licorice ice cream in the afternoon, my favorite!
So there you have it – a study in opposites! And with that, I’m taking a week off from the blog. Hope you have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
