After six and a half weeks of hanging around our beautiful Seattle neighborhood, the Cascadian Nomads humans and canines packed up and hit the road again. We started with a beautiful drive to the Southwestern-most corner of Washington State, Cape Disappointment. Just before highway 101 winds along Willipa Bay, we stopped in Raymond, Washington and enjoyed part of Lewis County's impressive, leashed dog-friendly Willipa Hills Trail.
It was one of those days where even the Washington State Pacific Ocean water was warm and even if a cold wave hit you, the sun was so warm that it didn't matter. The beach at Cape Disappointment had tide pools in the sand that were as warm as bath water. Even Wilhelm, who is always cold and has never voluntarily swam, jumped in to a warm pool for a swim! Brychwyn also did a bit of swimming during our beach hike but Huxley only had interest in wading or digging in the sand.
When we reached the jetty, the mouth of the mighty Columbia river lay before us. We could see Oregon, the Astoria-Megler bridge and the Astoria pillar (which we visited in February.) But all of this loveliness paled in comparison to my opportunity to photograph all three dogs in the fore ground of two lighthouses from one locale.
