Weather forecast called for partly cloudy today, but again we enjoyed another all blue sky with temperatures near 80 degrees. Taking full advantage of the warm day, we took a short hike called, “Heart of America” at the National Dungeness Wildlife Refuge (located about 4 miles out of Sequim). The path leads you through a cool thick forest down to the waters of the Straits of Juan de Fuca. You can continue to walk another five miles along the spit out to the lighthouse. But, we elected to sit on beached giant driftwood and enjoy the sunshine, surf and sand. (The number of people walking on the spit toward the lighthouse in the picture above makes it look almost like they are making a pilgrimage of some sort.)
Oh, and supposedly there was a 3.7 earthquake here this morning. Honestly, did not feel a thing.
