Favorite thing: visit Dungeness Spit, a long narrow length of sand and beach at the foot of the Dungeness River. The Dungeness Spit reaches out for miles into the water. This is the region famous for Dungeness crab. When you first arrive at the Dungeness Spit and you park your car in the parking lot, you have to walk down a large forested trail to the beach. Surrounding the trail are a variety of large evergreen trees, and swordferns which make their homes on the forest floor. Here's a picture of that trail.
visit the nearby wineries. Here's a picture of me and my sister infront of the Neuharth Winery. Our dad is a huge wine fan, and therefor if there's a winery located nearby during our vacation, our dad will make sure he stops by for a quick wine sampling or tour.
Neuharth Winery has since changed its name to Olympic Cellars. It's located in a huge barn on Hwy 101, 9 miles west of Sequim.
Fondest memory: is being on the actual sand spit at Dungeness. Here I am with my mom and my sister. Keep in mind I was 12 years old and very tall for my age in this picture! It was taken back in 1992.
Fondest memory: getting to the actual beach at Dungeness. Here's what it looks like when you finally emerge from the trail. The atmosphere is amazing, especially if there's a bit of fog.
