On the way home from Olympic National Park, we stopped to explore Dungeness Spit, located near Sequim, Washington. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
This 5.5-mile-long sand spit juts out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the body of water separating Vancouver Island (Canada) and the United States. (See map below.) The spit is home to the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge.
Piles of driftwood line the shore and provide a good place to sit and enjoy the view.
I zoomed in to capture Mount Baker in the distance and the lighthouse near the spit's end.
We didn't have enough time to walk all the way to the end of the spit and back, but we all enjoyed eating our sack lunches with the swoosh of the waves, salty scent from the ocean, and a glorious view of the Olympic Mountains across Dungeness Bay as our entertainment.
Here's a photo of me in my goofy hat... just to prove I was there!
