The ocean side of our home town

 The other side of Sequim. Our mountains south in the background.

On the 5 miles long Dungeness Spit. The cliffs in the distance. Big ships passing by.

Protected waters inside of the Spit.

Our new canoe. A joke of a boat for us seakayakers, but we like it for these kinds of trips. ($20 on Craig’s List.)

I always loved canoes.

Having our tea in style is always very important!

The famous Dungeness Light House at the end of the Spit.

On weekends one can see the huge cruise ships go by. Mt.Baker in the distance.

The Spit from the air. (from an Ultra Light)

The mouth of the Dungeness River. (from my Paraglider)

Paddling down the Dungeness River toward the mouth.

Where this short river ends.

Lots of wildlife at the mouth.

The Dungeness River about a mile further up.

Port Williams

Sunset over the Strait of Juan de Fuca. We sometimes sit here on top of the cliffs in the evening with a glass of wine. The wind gets diverted vertical by the cliffs, and we can sit in total calm only inches from the edge.

Or we float far out on the bay

The name Sequim means ‘calm waters‘.
