Escape from the day to day is vital to our sanity, well at least to mine… It’s amazing how quickly time flies and we forget to do things for ourselves. We are focused on our families, friends, careers, but do we pause and breathe? Sometimes… Often enough? Probably not…
This past weekend I did just that. A girl, her car and a couple of cameras = a little getaway and some cool photos. You be thinking, Seattle is beautiful, it’s a vacation everyday, when it’s not raining, right? It is, without a doubt, I love it here. Even though I’m surrounded by that beauty I still gotta get away occasionally.
From seattle I headed south and then west to Ocean Shores, WA. There’s not a lot in Ocean Shores, some houses, some hotels, a restaurant or two and of course the Pacific Ocean.
After checking in to my hotel, I grabbed my camera bag and headed straight for the ocean. Ocean shores beaches you can drive on which is kinda cool, can’t do that many places these days.
There were horses a plenty.
Driftwood, at high(ish) tide
And again and lower tide around sunset
Rocks and views for miles
The horizon seemed so far away… sunsets on the coast are so different than the day to day sunsets I see in my neighbourhood.
A nice way to spend a couple of days.
What journeys do you take when you want to get away?
