Yesterday was the first hike of the year and it was, in theory, an easy one. Dungeness Spit is an 11 mile round trip hike out on a bird sanctuary to the lighthouse at the end. It isn't unusual to see seals playing in the kelp by the lighthouse and large freighters in the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We saw both. And, yes it was cool, but at least there was a breeze.
