We're continuing on our Washington state tour, but with our beautiful mountains in the rear view mirror.
We're off to the peninsula, going as far south as you can go in Washington and as far west at the same time. Along the way I see a sign for the only covered bridge in Grays County. (For those of you that have followed along on this blog, you know of course that I turned down that road in a flash).
I of course, need to fit the truck and trailer through the little opening on the other end of of the bridge. There was no where to turn before crossing the bridge so we inched through the eye of the bridge. It was built in 1905 by the Ahlberg family who owned the land on both sides of the Grays River. The bridge was covered in 1906 because the wooden bridge was to slick for livestock to cross safely.
On we drove on to Ocean Park to visit a long time friend who lives on the Peninsula north of Long Beach. We have been friends for forty years and it is always wonderful to spend some time with her. The weather as been on again off again but we certainly fill in the rainy moments with lots of chatter and beach walks.
This is the first year we have been here for Sandsations, a sand carving contest.. The day of the contest a beautiful blue irridecent shell washed up on shore .
We braved the crowds and made a visit to Long Beach the day of the contest to watch the progress.
