One of the great things about the Puget Sound area is that there are so many beaches. They're usually rocky and muddy instead instead of sandy but are still a lot of fun for kids.
One of the the highlights of visiting Olympia is getting together with my friend Carol. On this last visit Carol packed a picnic lunch which we took down to her neighborhood beach and let the kids run around.
There was a little stream that ran under a bridge and down to the sound. The kids had so much fun exploring and splashing in the water.
We were the only one on the beach; it was wonderfully relaxing just to sit and chat with Carol and watch the kids play--so much so that I didn't notice the time passing and ended up with an impressive sunburn.
