Tacoma Narrows Park-August 13th

View from the beach
We stayed close to "home" last week in the hospitality of great views, a shady tree that most of us worked from, fresh peaches from Nan's tree and a visit from the sheep. This week we will be laying low in the Harbor before the road calls again. So when I say low I am referring to low tide which allows us beach access to walk the 1315 foot shore that faces the bridge from the GH side at the Tacoma Narrows Bridge Park. Many of you have commented on the nice windy drive down to the park and wanting to paint the woods while many of us want to get that unique sea level perspective of either the bridge or the narrows passage that looks across to Tacoma. Although there is a gazebo overlook most of the ocean side park is sunny and open so bring your sunscreen and a sack lunch if you want to stay for a bite. Shall we meet 9 a.m. or so?
