I once walked Dungeness Spit by myself to the old lighthouse on a beautiful Spring day. It is a memory I will never forget. This year my husband and I wanted a long weekend away and we chose Sequim. It started with a ferry ride from Edmonds which is the way to start a vacation. We left the city behind and stayed 4 days at Dungeness Bay Cottages which were wonderful. The weather was still intermittent rain but we packed for it and drove our first full day in Sequim to Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge. I forgot it was a national park and had a fee but luckily we have a lifetime pass as we are Seniors. The naturalist/park ranger met us at the trailhead and was a wealth of information and a neat guy. We walked through the forest, admired the different trees, especially the old cedars, and it was a lovely walk. Once on the beach we paused to take a few photos of a juvenile bald eagle that flew to a tall stump and continued to walk until the rain began to get heavy. I put almost 5 miles on my FitBit fitness monitor on that walk and intend to walk to the new lighthouse the next time we are there. Gorgeous woods, wildlife refuge, and salt water all in one location. Don't miss this!
