We just got back from a weekend trip to Copalis Beach where Max's family has a cabin by the ocean. We had some fun out there in the middle of nowhere, showing Joscha and Justin (our visiting friends from Amsterdam) a little bit more of the Pacific North West. We occupied ourselves with things that locals do, like drinking, target practice shooting, dice games, beach combing and playing shuffle board. Unfortunately there was no clam tide, otherwise we could have done some clam digging as well, which would for sure have been a 'special' experience for our city guests.
It's really becoming a bit of a nuisance that I don't have a digital camera (our last one died on a sandy beach in Sicily), but I can share a few cell phone pictures mixed in with some recycled pics from a previous trip there.
