Grays Harbor – North Beach

 

 

Beachcombing may be an effort to find items to collect and bring home. Some people may be out to do a minor or major beach cleanup project. Some may be out to get a few photos or to take a look at how people are living their lives near the water.

Shallow water beachcombing is also an activity I enjoy. There can be a lot to see in the part of the beach that is not on dry land.

There is a lonely stretch of beach between Perego’s Lagoon and Fort Ebey. Less people can mean better beachcombing.

Hatch cover from a yacht. I found this item in the Port Townsend area.

This works well as an elevated table top when placed on sawhorses during a backyard bbq. Also great when set up like an outdoor coffee table.

This item was crying out for a little TLC when I found it.

Out back by the fire pit.

A good spot to add to your collection.

Sometimes the outing is just a chance to take a look around.

Maybe a chance to see something from a time gone by.

Maybe a chance to work on a project.

A chance to see how people are living their lives near the water.

Starting a new day at Port Hadlock by rowing ashore:

WA State Parks tell us not to collect driftwood for a campfire.

Sometimes firewood becomes driftwood.

We’ll save our picnic for another day.

Marvin took us out to the Grayland/Twin Harbors area for razor clams. This was the first time in my life that I had ever been out to dig razor clams.

When done right, razor clams are the best seafood I have ever had.

We got to the beach about two hours early. We had a really good outing. Left the beach before dark. Weather was great.

Was not aware, until today, that Mount Rainier can be seen from this beach.

East winds out there today.

The wind and rain has eased up for a bit. Out to the beach before daylight, and it was a really good morning for clams. First outing for clams since living in Port Hadlock years ago.
