So, I boarded a flight from OKC to Seattle and arrived a little after 9 p.m. pacific time and that was a little tough to start off with because of the two hour difference in time that my body clock was used to. I had about an hour drive to my hotel in Olympia so by the time I got to my room it was after 1 a.m. Oklahoma time, well past the time I usually head to bed.
I got some sleep and woke up early the next day ready to hit the road. I chose to drive west on my first day to get coastal shots, I didn't want to be too obvious and drive directly to Mount Rainier which would have been the easy thing to do. I went through the town of Aberdeen then headed for the coast up Highway 109 finding Roosevelt Beach along the way. I was there fairly early in the morning so there was no one else on the beach and it gave me a lot of time to explore. The scenery was pretty nice with the forest coming up to the shore while fog made its way inland. I love shots like these because it's not an obvious subject and can easily be overlooked. But, not this time.
Be sure to check back for my Day Two post very soon.
