Journal entry – 6 May 2016, Fri – Beaches and Forests

Got up and headed north on the 101, stopping at Ruby Beach, a “don’t miss” in our park guidebook. It was definitely a beautiful location. Unfortunately, with Ashley’s ankle we weren’t able to venture very far. We walked down to the first landing along the stairs. I scouted further on but with the additional steps and the beach littered with a cross-hatch of logs it wasn’t sore-ankle friendly. We sat and enjoyed the view for a bit before heading back up. I carried Ashley up piggy-back.

Ruby Beach Ruby Beach we made it to Washington!

Further along the road we stopped in the NFS station in Forks. Got a couple of recommendations for tonight’s stop. Short drive from there, so it wasn’t long before we were settled in for the evening in a great little turn-about with flowers growing everywhere. Weird to have to level – the last few days have been simply a matter of pulling in and ready to go.
