What is that saying – all good things must come to an end? Well, our vacation had to end too. If you’ve been following these posts then you can probably tell that it was a memorable one for us. On the last day we walked on the beach one last time and then checked out of the Sandpiper and headed back to civilization. But not before walking on another beach! We went to the south end of Ocean Shores – to a long spit that extends southward into Grays Harbor. It was an unseasonably warm day for the end of March. Snowy Owls spend the winter on this beach and last year reports indicated that they stayed til nearly mid-April so I thought we might have a chance to see them. I was not SO optimistic that I carried my big camera and long lens though. That was a good indicator that we would see something interesting. And indeed we did – three Snowy Owls and a Short-eared Owl! What fun.

Can you see the Snowy Owl flying through the beach pines?
