west coast diaries - part ten: exploring cape disappointment



















May 22. After breakfast, Katie and Dad went for a little hike up through the woods somewhere in this campground to explore an old WWII battery. The trail looked horrid unpleasant so I asked Mom if she would be interested in taking a walk on the beach with me and the dogs instead. So we did that while Katie and Dad went on their hike. After they were finished with that, they came and met us on the beach and told us about their adventure.

We drove up to some cute little towns where we got out and walked around. There was this one store called The Wooden Horse and the lady working there was so friendly and nice and she was fascinated by how we drove all the way from Vermont to get here. And she offered to take our picture outside in front of the store. So we all stood outside and she snapped a picture of us.

Next, we drove back to the park at Cape Disappointment. We walked up to the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center which was like a really cool walkthrough museum thing and it was all rather fascinating but we had to kind of rush through it because it was getting near closing time. After that, we drive down a North Jetty road and saw the sea caves which were kind of awesome. We also saw a deer on the side of the road, playing in the grass. She was so pretty.

After that, we drove back to the campground, took a walk on the beach with the dogs, then Mom and Katie made dinner while me and Dad took a bike ride to find Waikiki beach. It was super cool. Almost like a cove thing, and there was a dude paddleboarding and another dude filming him. We also saw a seal. It was wallowing around in the sand and looked up at us and we just kind of stood there and watched it, then we moved onto climbing up on the rocks. I had never been so close to a wild seal before.

Maybe I’ll have more time to note my thoughts tomorrow. While we drive, or something.
