We went out to the Washington Coast to dig razor clams at the end of last month. Clamming was good the first three nights (yes, clam digging at night, in January) but then it slowed down for us. Still we managed to eat lots of them. I even made razor clam ceviche for the first time (yummers!) and we brought some home for the freezer. It was a good time.

During the day, we enjoyed long walks on the beach and Ken did some fishing for surf perch. The first two days we had some sunshine and a little bit of rain and then the last two days, it just rained. Oh well. It was January on the coast. We tried to see the Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse but a thin and then a thick overcast mostly obscured it.

Once again, the girls were thrilled to be at the beach.

I was without a computer for four weeks so I got a little behind with this blog. So bear with me as I add a few posts.

This is from the trip to Oregon five weeks ago. I was able to get some quality time on the beach near Florence. I was particularly fascinated by the action of the water and sand as the waves washed over a sand dollar.

The best place for sunsets.





A few birds from the beach. We also saw Marbled Godwits, Bald Eagles and a Peregrine Falcon that dived on a flock of peeps.
