Almost every time I go to the beach, I find myself racing against time. I still always think it's going to be darker than it ends up being, so I'm always rushing to see more of the sunrise. I also saw the ferry start to pull away and was trying to find just the right spot to get a shot of it near the lighthouse.
The beach was lovely, as always.
I think this was the first time I've ever been there when this, uh, cargo thing had a bunch of containers on it.
I recently noticed on a sign that you can walk from the Sounder station platform two different ways to get to the beach. Only one of them has a view of the water, so there's really no reason to take the other one unless you want to go in loops or enjoy the views of big concrete pens, piles of old rusty metal, and strange debris. But I finally checked it out today. On the map, it's the little branch where the mile 2 mark occurs.
