|Springtime at the Beach|
What interesting Spring weather we've been having...actually, everyone seems to be having extreme weather conditions around the globe.
Don't get me wrong, our Washington shoreline is normally very rainy which provides beautiful lush evergreens, grass and huge flowering shrubs; however it's been overly rainy and cool the past six months. I must admit that it's been a bit tough getting motivated to get outside when it's so cool and dreary so I was ecstatic when the sunshine came out last weekend!
Springtime always holds unique weather actually..hail, wind, sunshine AND rain. Liz and I enjoyed some beach time recently. Even though it was windy and cool we had the beach to ourselves (one of my all-time favorite things about living here) and had a delightful time breathing in the fresh sea breeze.
Stormy springtime clouds make for picturesque views of the ocean...

Oh, here's a ray of sunshine on a dreary day! Liz's smile always lights up the world (can you tell I'm a bit biased? LOL!)
We were seriously the only ones on the beach that afternoon!

We both fell in love with this huge tree trunk...it looked especially pretty with the ocean in the background.
The clouds really came rolling in quickly and looked very ominous...

...but the clouds broke up a bit and Liz captured this amazing shot on our drive home.
Oh yeah, as mentioned above, the sun came shining brightly last weekend and it was GORGEOUS!
People were digging for Razor Clams over the weekend...
...and we were searching for seashells at the seashore...
As you can see, Springtime along the Washington Coast can change from day to day (or minute by minute) and it's one of the things that makes living at the beach a very special thing. We hope you have a lovely day AND come back tomorrow for our Beach Cottage Kitchen reveal. We're sharing today at A Rosy Note's Photo Feature Friday.
