Respite From The Heat...Remembering Kalaloch Beach

I t is an extremely haot few days for us...supposed to be 104 in Seattle on Friday! Amazing! It will be high 80s to low 90s here on the Olympic Peninsula which is very hot for us! So I wanted to share cooling photos of a weekend we recently spent at Kalaloch Beach in Olympic National Park just a few miles from us on the Pacific Coast...the West End of the Peninsula...beloved of Twilight fans...not many words, but lots of photos of a beautiful place taken over 3 days...





At the Lumber and Woodsmen Museum in Forks...cut from a single tree, now used for a bus stop...


No tea...just a chicken pizza....




The beach at Kalaloch...we stayed at the Lodge here...are littered with driftwood and logs...




The sea mist comes and goes from moment to moment...




There is a lagoon in front of the lodge that ebbs and flows with the tides...




A path takes you down from the lodge for beach access with miles of sand and driftwood....






The gazebo at the top of the path is a quiet, contemplative place...especially early in the morning and in the mist...I spent several early mornings here, mug of tea in hand as the day begun....

I hope you have a place you can retreat to for a bit of peace and coolness in the heat.
