Copalis Beach

We have enjoyed a relaxing week at Tidelands Campground at Copalis Beach, WA.  Not sure about Pat, but I think beach living would still be my choice for our post-traveling home.  We have had highs around 64° here though, which is a little too cold for me. 

Pat and I took a drive one afternoon and saw the world's largest Sitka Spruce.  It is around 1,000 years old, 191 feet tall, with a circumference of 58'11.

Quinault Valley is home to six champion trees.  No wonder since the Quinault Rainforest receives on average 12 feet of rainfall a year.  Like most places out here, this rainforest is suffering from less rainfall this year.

Our month adventure is nearly complete with Zia, Cyrus, and Samira.  With 1 bath just Pat and I often wish we had an additional half bath.  With 5 of us?  With little privacy, tank conservation when we were at places with no sewer hook-ups, 110° at places where we only had actually less than 30 amps and could only use 1 air conditioner, packing up and setting back up every few days, having to leave early for longer drives, limited space,  and the list goes on we all survived...I think!  I certainly admire and maybe question the sanity of families that do this full-time.

The beach marker to our campground trail.  This Sculpture utilizes many of the items washed up on the beach.

We could walk to the beach.  Thus section didn't allow cars so less people.

Few RV parks allow tents.  Zia's own bedroom.
