Jen Takes on the Pacific/Rainforest.

Tomorrow I leave Ocean Shores on the Olympic Peninsula for Seattle again. I've spent about five days here on the coast for my single woman vacation, and with all this solitude I've had one major breakthrough and a few smaller ones. :) I'd highly recommend going away from everyone/everything at least once in a while to allow yourself time to clear out your head and gather wisdom. Here are some pictures for your enjoyment. :)


Tsunami route sign right on the street beside my hotel. Guess it makes sense. The beach is straight ahead...

Doesn't it seem odd that you'd flee parallel to a tidal wave? Just sayin'... See captions for more scientific explanation.



I didn't realize how close I was to Forks and Port Angeles, but apparently I drove right past them. No, there were no sparkly vampires anywhere to be see.


Seavultures, as I call them, waited in hordes anywhere they felt there was even the remotest chance of food. This was a McD's parking lot.


This is the sand dune trail behind my hotel that would (eventually) lead to the ocean. However, that is only after walking a block's worth of scratchy sand dune brush, and since they are awesome here and let you just drive right up onto the beach, after my first experience with said wilderness, I decided to just drive and park, instead. ;)



Fish and chips! I love malt vinegar. :)


Fish tacos at the beach!















This is the entrance to the Weatherwax Coastal Rainforest. Pretty special, huh? Peek in there and you just KNOW something cool is waiting for you...

A few feet past the entrance and I'm like a kid in fairyland.








This is canopy...
