I ♥ Faces: Beach Fun

This summer has been crazy busy with lots of traveling and visitors!  I’ve taken countless pictures, but haven’t had much time to go through them all.  I did, however, manage in a little time to post a picture from earlier this week.  We took our friends from Spain to La Push, and in true Olympic Peninsula style, it was beautifully overcast and a little chilly… in August!

This picture was taken on Second Beach in La Push (for the Twihard fans, this is Jacob Black’s territory!).  I think, of all the beaches on this peninsula, this one’s my favorite.  It’s a short, but beautiful, hike in; you have to climb over some driftwood to get to the beach, but at low tide, it’s a wonderful place for kids to play in the soft sand.

Valentine’s Day on the West End

For Valentine’s Day, we decided to head out to La Push for the day, hoping the rain would subside and the sun would come out.  Boy, did it ever!  The tides were insane, though; First Beach was blanketed with huge, pounding waves in the early afternoon.

We took a drive around the prairie and let the girls play for a while at a dead end road.

We headed to Rialto Beach, and the girls were fascinated by the waves and seafoam!  Despite all the solemn looks on their faces in the photos, they really did have fun!
