Maybe you thought I forgot to post about the rest of our trip... or maybe you thought we got stuck somewhere. Nope, I've just been distracted since we've been back... more posts to follow.
We drove through Amanda Park on our way to Kalaloch... so naturally, we took a picture.
|At the tide pools|
One of the rangers at Kalaloch (we still don't know how to correctly pronounce it) suggested we check out the tide pools on Saturday morning. So we headed down on a rainy Saturday morning and were not disappointed with what we saw. We were at first excited to see a starfish or anemone in a little pond - but as we walked further out it was so fun to see them covering rocks. We got there at just the right time (thanks to the ranger's tide chart) and were able to see a lot of sea life that is usually hidden in the ocean.

|For all of the Twilight lovers out there|
We left Kalaloch after seeing the tide pools and drove north to Sol Duc - the hot springs were tempting after the cold, wet weather. We drove through Forks - which apparently is in the Twilight books (haven't read them). It seems that they've been able to generate some tourism from the books (there were multiple stores and tours based solely on these books - crazy).

Next up... Canada.... but I left the rest of the pictures at home, so there will be another delay before the next post.
