It was a sunny day in Seattle. Just as rare as a rainy day in the desert. Joe has a huge test tomorrow for which he has been studying all weekend, and planned on going to school to study for today. He left for the bus stop, and I was kind of depressed because it felt like a holiday and it was sunny, but I did not really know what to do to keep the kids and myself entertained. About ten minutes later Madison said "Dad's here," he came in and we formulated a plan to enjoy the good weather! Don't worry he is studying now, so I think he will still do well on the test.
We took the Kingston Ferry over to the Olympic Peninsula and drove out to Sequim where the Dungeness Natural Wild Life Preserve is and also the home the the largest sand spit (FYI: I hate the words Sequim, Dungeness, and spit so this is kind of hard to write about even though it was a fun trip). The spit is 5.5 miles long with a lighthouse at the end of it. We didn't quite make it out that far, but enjoyed being out on the beach. Madison and Joe went for a walk and found some interesting shells and wildlife. Hayes and I looked for uniquely colored rocks and chased some of the waves. We could see Mt. Baker, the Olympic Mountains and Canada from the beach. It was pretty impressive. We left at sunset and got a nice final view of the water and the mountains.
