The Olympic Peninsula (and Olympic National Park) is just a short ferry ride across the Straight of Juan de Fuca from Victoria, and somewhere I’ve been meaning to visit for years. I’m glad that I finally did!
I arranged for a small group from my local photo club to go on a day trip to Botanical Beach. The beach is best seen at low tide, when the many unique features can be more easily observed, and the water doesn’t keep you off the beach. This took a bit of coordination to get the timings right and as the day approached, it looked like we might be more in danger of getting wet from the rain than the ocean.
