We spent a gloriously sunny Sunday at the beach! There is this little beach near Grayland that isn't accessible to vehicles. I love Washington beaches, but I absolutely hate the fact that you can drive on them. I think it's ridiculous to take your kids to the beach to play and then spend all day telling them to watch out for cars. A friend showed us this part of the beach last year. You park on the side of the road and there's a bit of a walk but it's so worth it.
The water is really calm here and it's shallow for a long ways so the kids can play safely along the waters edge.

Fishing for perch in the surf
Fishing for crab? Crabbing for crab? The Mister was using a crab snare off the end of the Jetty. It is a little mesh box that you put bait in, then there are loops of cord hanging off it. When the crabs come get the bait, you reel in your fishing line and hopefully they get caught in the cord. He caught four but they were all to small and had to be thrown back.
Whiskey also loves the beach
.You can't really see them in the picture, but this tide pool was full of little fish. The Mister thinks they were sculpin
