On my birthday, we drove to the Quinault Rain Forest and enjoyed a lovely walk in the green, green forest. Everything was lush and growing, growing out of everything else it seems. Trees were tall and covered with moss and lichens. Water dripped off of every surface despite the fact that we had partly sunny skies. Luna particularly liked the smells of the rain forest. For the first half of our walk, we mostly had the place to ourselves but later in the day, it was busy and we all returned to leashes.

The girls and I had a windy walk yesterday. I know, I keep complaining about the weather but this wind gets on my nerves. Some days though, I just need to make myself go out in it. It did not take away from the beauty of the late spring flowers and the green, green leaves. It did make them harder to photograph. Wild roses are at the peak of flowering and filled the air with vibrant scent.

After digging and cleaning our razor clams one day we went to the Quinault Rain Forest. It rained. Not too much while we were outside but it did rain. It probably rains there most days. How else would it ever be so green? And how many shades of green are there? It’s really amazing to wander in these green places and feel the moisture and breathe the clean air. We enjoyed the songs of Pacific Wrens and Varied Thrush. On the river we saw Harlequin Ducks.
