Saturday at Fort Worden

My friend Lise is visiting for a few weeks. She now lives in Haugesund, Norway, but for many (and many and many more!) years was my neighbor in Shoreline. Our children grew up together and our families have shared many experiences and good times over the years. She is here now for her son's 40th birthday. Here she is pictured above with darling Nonie. (Lise is the one in the red jacket.)

It was a beautiful afternoon and although a jacket felt good, so did the sunshine.

Some unknown beach goer had amassed a large collection of flat stones into a collection of cairns, all stretched out along a piece of driftwood. It was really quite beautiful.
We spend a happy few hours just beach combing and strolling. I got to get my feet wet and dig my bare toes into the sand for perhaps the last time this summer. Nonie scored the big find of the day when she discovered a whole chiton.

What a lovely way to spend the day with a treasured friend.

Great shots of a wild coast. You sure need jackets there. I didn't realise how close to Canada you are. Shame we couldn't have met up. You will have to come here instead.
