We spent four days over the Valentines and Presidents day week end out at, what we call the West End, the coast. We were on the beach at Oceanside RV Park in La Push.
When we arrived it was raining just as we were starting to set up our rolling home away from home. As I was setting up Gayle walked back to the office to get someone to come down and turn the water at our site and as she was walking back she noticed I pulled into the wrong site. Sooooo, half drenched and steaming on the inside, I comely hooked up and moved one site over. Reprieve…the sun came out and setup went as it should.
After settling in for a few moments we made the short walk to the beach and this is what we saw. I was a happy camper the rest of that day but, the following three days Mother Nature unleashed high winds and torrential rain. In La Push there’s no TV and no cell service so we were glad we brought some movies.
All in all it was good to just get away and we did get outside between the down pours.
Spent some time down by Westport in a little community named Tokeland.
These are a few from November 2011. For some reason I have a hard time working with Black & White, but I converted these and am trying to find my balance.
Looking out over Protection Island and one from later in the evening.
Yes, It’s been a long time…
A few weeks back Gayle was going thru some stuff we cleaned out of a house a few year ago and found this.
I used the 7D with a 60mm 2.8 lens and an inexpensive flash diffuser that I carry around just in case. Shot in manual mode and focus.
Pics of the 7D taken with the old stand by, Rebel XTi with the 28-200 lens attached, again in manual mode but with auto focus.
Any day you can spent with your Dad (early 90′s ) and Mon (late 80′s) is special.
Took my dad a card and my mom some flowers…
While waiting for our grandson’s graduation ceremony I caught this image through a rain spattered windshield. After parking the car the rain let-up, stepped out, grabbed the trusty iPhone and here you go……
Spent a few hours having fun at this 5th yearly event.
A BIG THANK YOU to my good friend Ray……………
