I saw Washington's Pacific coast for the first time this weekend.
(I know, we need to get out more.)

It was a gray, drizzly day but we decided to make the 2.5 hour drive to the coast anyway. 
There's not much point in putting things off until a 'nice day' out here.

There weren't many people at Ocean City State Park, but that only made the stark landscape more breathtaking.

The slowly approaching surf left the most interesting patterns in the sand.

Self portrait.

You could hardly tell where the sky ended and the ocean began. 
Everything was the same lovely shade of gray.

{ what adventures found you this weekend? }

Pssssssssst! - Last week was the technology week from hell!  I think we had internet access for like, two days.  I'm catching up now that the comcast gods are playing nice.  Thanks for being patient with me! <3

    Girl, you took some absolutely lovely photos. I've never been out to that part of Washington, but it looks like it was well worth the 2.5 hour drive.

    My (26 year old) husband broke his hip this weekend and had to have surgery. :/ We managed to have fun anyway.

    Wow, the first and second photo are my favorites. I love a sunny day at the beach as much as the next guy, but I also love me some gloom. :)

    I love the Pacific Northwest. It is strange, but sometimes the grey beach days are sort of my favourite.

    wow, fabulous pictures!! this weekend i slept, worked a little bit (boo!), and chilled with friends. we don't get out much either (outside of our town), unless it's to a new restaurant haha. or vegas.

    wow, the photos are splendid, it goes to show that you can find beauty in anything and everything - even if it's gray and drizzly outside.

    Really, that was your first time to the coast? Don't you live in the Pacific Northwest? So...What did you think?
