When Mother Nature is your vacation keeper, your vacation schedule can be as mercurial as she is. So when it rained last week, we drove overnight to make the most of a few days outside of Seattle to visit family.
Not only was the weather in the mid-70s and sunny, the company was pretty great too. And so was the paddle boarding and the beach combing and the seafood eating.
Our visit to Shi Shi Beach, though, was my favorite part of the trip. The eight-mile-round-trip hike was worth the effort to see the most amazing tide pools I’ve ever seen.
