Last weekend my daughter Amber came home for Easter with her boyfriend Carl. The weather was perfect, and the tide low, so we headed up to Dungeness Spit. It's my favorite place to hike and I was surprised at the wide expanse of sandy beach. We walked out to the lighthouse, which is a short 5.5 miles :) It was sunny and warm, with gorgeous views of Mt. Baker and the Olympics. The sign at the end of the beach reads "welcome to serenity" and I couldn't think of a better name for this heavenly place.
