In 2008, we visited Seattle & the Olympic Peninsula, stopping on Ruby Beach for just an hour. At that moment i knew i had to find my way back to the Pacific Coast to find more time here. Martha & i knew we needed time together this summer as it had been far too long since we had quality time together. i knew the perfect place for our low-key vacation.
So we hopped on a plane to Seattle, rented a car, jumped on a ferry, and headed for the Pacific Coast. The drive out was so much fun. We really enjoyed the scenery and chatted along the way. We planned the vacation so we didn't have a set schedule, just did whatever we wanted to do.
For our first part of this trip, we booked a bungalow at the quaint town of Seabrook. It's a budding beach town nestled up against the Pacific Coast that's a throwback to the old beach communities. Their homes are so picturesque and i absolutely love the architecture with the big porches, wooden shingles, and colorful decor.
The town is so well laid out with beautiful landscaping, lovely walkways, and incredible wildflowers all around. We really enjoyed walking from our beach camp area up to the retail area or to the beach. We loved taking different paths and seeing the many unique houses.
We would walk to the beach every day, climbing up & down those awesome wooden stairs. The days were varied from foggy to rainy to misty to sunny. We came prepared for anything, just knowing we wanted time on the beach. i love the sights, the smells, the salty air, and the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore. It was so refreshing to have just time to do nothing together with my Martha.
There is something so magical about the beach, renewing. We loved each minute we spent there. We stayed nearly a week there before journeying further up the coast to our next spot. We absolutely loved our time at Seabrook and would absolutely go back. In fact, i hope to bring the family there one day.
