365 Inspirations—89: Bright Sun and Low Tide Beach Walking

"The land was not the arctic waste commonly envisioned, but a fertile paradise; Puget Sound, said one rhapsodic report, was 'the Mediterranean of the Northwest'"— David Lavender 

Today we went down to Richmond Beach in Shoreline and the tide was so far out that we could walk on these amazing sandbars. Normally the walk is quite short on this beach due to high tide, but today it seemed like we could walk forever if we wanted to.

We saw barefoot prints in the sand and seagull prints too.

The Olympic Mountains seemed HUGE. It felt like we could reach out and touch them.

Today I felt like Hawaii had followed us to Seattle. It is on days like today that I reconsider my thoughts about moving.

There is absolutely no place like Seattle or Washington State when it is sunny. The air is so fresh and mixed with the smell of salt water and seaweed. The sights, sounds and smells were overwhelming today. We even saw an eagle take flight over our head.

I'm so happy we ventured out today and got to walk in the bright sun at low tide. It was a beautiful day for beach walking!

Have you gone beach walking lately?

  1. What a data of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable familiarity concerning unpredicted feelings.
