Fog to Blue skies at the beach

Took 2 1/2 hours to drive to the coast through Tacoma with at least half the drive in thick fog. Once the fog cleared there was beauftiful blue skies ( the first I had seen in a week!)

We found a fish and chips place to eat lunch and then headed to the beach.

The snow capped Olympia Mts were to the north & Mt Ranier to the south

We found we were able to drive up the beach as it was low tide and the sand was hard enough until we got to the end and got ourselves bogged!

Blackish wet sand, wild waves with big surf breaking out the back. The high tide mark was covered in logs and driftwood and there wer lots of shells on the low tide mark. We walked along the beach looking for shells with the kids and up to the big groyne. The waves were breaking on the inside of the groyne were massive and at least 8 feet!

It was in the big harbour opening and looking south we could see snow covered Mt Ranier. There were houses on the eroded cliffs and dune grass waving in the wind. It was just lovely to be outside and in the sun, even though it was still cold!!!

Brad & I stopped in at the Cheesecake Factory at Renton and shared a Bang Bang Chicken and shrimp. It was only 5 pm and we were told there was a 40 minute wait, so we grabbed a seat at the bar and got served staright away.

Stunning sunset views from their back deck at Issaquah Heights over Seattle city

Back home to Issaquah to babysit the yummy grand babies while Adam & Kristtna met some friends for dinner.
