Fort Ebey Beach Combing

After hiking several miles of the many trails at Fort Ebey, we finally reached the beach and had a great time discovering what had washed up during the last high tide. Having crossed the Cascadia Marine Trail, one of only 16 National Recreation Trails designated by the White House, I would love to go back and hike that trail.

Oak Harbor – City Beach Walk

Back in the days during the early 1970s when I lived in Oak Harbor, they quite simply called this City Beach, but somewhere along the way, someone turned the area into a park. Building a windmill in the middle of the park, now they call it Windjammer Park. One of my favorite beach walks in downtown in Oak Harbor, I still like to stop there for a walk when I’m passing through town.

Upper Skagit Hiking

In the construction field, my father worked on the Lower Baker Dam and helped build that upper portion of Highway 20 when I was a child, so to this day, I always enjoy my visits there. Fall colors were just beginning their show and a rainstorm was on its way. The frequent downpours did not dampen our spirits though as we toured the little town of Concrete, visited the Lower Baker Dam and hiked the Trail of the Cedars on the other side of the Baker River in Newhalem.
