And I missed you? lol...

That place was a ZOO yesterday! We stopped by on our way back from the coast to meet up with my friends Ldyblade and Rumidude. Yeah, they got a parking spot, we didn't. mad.gif

(Of course it was my fault. You don't start hiking the spit after noon on a sunny warm weekend!)

And that campground is nice, I like it even in rain biggrin.gif

oh no!!! Claire and I were walking through the parking lot back to our campsite at about noon. We just missed you sarbar!

on a side note, we stopped at Deception Pass to take some photos on the way back to Vancouver. Gosh I can't wait for the April GTG now. What a beautiful place!

It was gorgeous yesterday!

We ended up stopping at the Kitsap Memorial SP for an hour or so on the way back so Kirk could take a nap. The Hood Canal was quiet and pretty, lots of birds out smile.gif

More Cowbell found the chiton.  At first I didn’t care a whole hell of a lot about it – I had thought she said “hey, there’s a kite on the beach.”  BFD, I thought….but I wandered over to see what everyone was looking at, and lo!  There was a deceased chiton.

I think my photos pretty much sucked due to the harsh lighting.  I only took about 50 or so, and some of them were half-hearted and half-assed, knowing they wouldn’t turn out.  Haven’t reviewed them yet.

I'm leaving the fancy photos to the pros but here are a few from my vantage:

I've been to the Dungeness W.R. before but never all the way to the light house.  This was a GOOD LONG walk and we had the luck of the tides as they were going out for entire trip.  Be prepared for slushy sand, ankle twisting cobblestones and sneaky attack waves.  But the payoff at the end is worth it, the weather was perfect and I was with a great troupe of comedians.

Nice Pütz-in-Boots!  up.gif  Looks like the Spit has been quite popular recently. Areas that are usually snow-free (Middle Fork of the Snoqualmie River, South Fork of the Skokomish River, etc.) have been hammered this season. Looks like the beach is nice and clear!

Here it is!  My filmmaking debut!  I'd like to thank my cast, asst. film crew (prompters) and BPJ (for his inspiring contributions to NWHinkers).

Was great meeting up with everyone. Thank to PiB for the ride from Kingston and hauling me all the way back to my car in Edmonds!!

So here's my choice pics from nearly 400 that I took. They still need some post processing but with my MAC on the operating table I'm without my Photoshop.

So here we go...

Beginning of the day at Port Gamble

Lighthouse at Ft Warden

Coastal Battery from WWI

Hanging in there

Coast at Ft Warden

Shore and bluffs at Dungeness County Park:

Sunset at Dungeness

Moon at Sunset

Moon goes Supernova!!

Ice Halo

The Olympics in all their glory

Mt Baker was out, with our Lighthouse destination in the distance

Next stop, Human Brains!!!  eek.gif

Seagull trying to look cool

Our ship, unfortunately, did not come in

Quark, eats lunch, can't get up

Close to our destination, the Dungeness Spit Lighthouse

The motley crew from L-HR: Quark, More Cowbell, Putz-in-Boots, raz2sea (kneeling), JimK and bcfc53

The Sun's out and the HOTNESS begins!!!

Quark shows how HOTNESS is done correctly

A happy Seal wishing us a lovely 5 mi hike back to the cars

I'll probably post more later.

Thanks again to all who showed up and sorry we missed even more people out there!!!

Sorry I missed you all! I figured you were gone by the time I arrived, or I would have paid more attention to the people out there.

Hey Canyonwren, what time were you out there? We left the Lighthouse around 2:30, back at the cars around 5pm.
