We stopped to view beaches but were on a mission to head up to Mora Campground in the Olympic Peninsula. We had heard via her blog that Kim of The Travels of Kimbopolo would be there and it would be a good base for hikes and beaches in the area.
We arrived late in the afternoon and snagged one of the last spots. We quickly set up across from Kim and discovered were right in the middle of a Lazy Daze and blogger convention. Next to us was Suzanne at Take To The Highway and next to her was Jim and Gayle at Life's Little Adventures . Also with the group was Chuck and Carla and across the way was Debbie. It was fun to meet the group and we enjoyed our time together.
Jim was able to fix the newly flat tire on the bike and Chuck addressed some electrical issues with the trailer. The tire is holding air now and the flickering lights seem to have stopped although we won’t know about the electrical hook-up until we try shore power again as we have been completely solar. Many thanks again guys for your help. Sometimes, I do know when I’m over my head and leave it to the experts!
We were anxious to get down to the beach and so headed down after setting up our camp.
It is a beautiful beach, littered with gigantic logs which either fell on the beach or are washed on to the beach .during violent storms. It is clear that the beach is constantly changing with the tides and storms.
During our time at Rialto Beach we spent most of the time playing peak a boo with the sun. During most of the day, the sea mist hugged the coastline, snaking in and out among the trees.
Yet, a few hundred yards away the sun would be peaking through the mist.
We remained ever hopeful for the perfect sunny viewing providing perfect photo opts….. and were forever disappointed as the mist crept in and out especially near the beach but remained during most of the day.
It was delightful to see families and watch as the children would discover a new ‘find’ and point it out to their parents. How wonderful to see this education in action.
In the end, I believe the mist added to our experience though the sunsets I dreamed of, elude me.
