Sombrio Beach Daydreaming

All photos taken May 19, 2022.

After retracing our steps across the bridge, we again turned right and soon found ourselves down at a gorgeous beach. Others were there, but the beach was not crowded in any sense of the word. We all agreed we could sit here for a while and contemplate our day so far.

Beautiful tableau

unfolding before our eyes.

Basking in the day,

time seems to stand still for us.

Sombrio Beach Daydreaming.

Gorgeous beach view as we exit the trail

This day was as sunny as the previous day was grey. Cool ocean breezes stirred the azure waters

A couple of surfers were trying the waves

Our clear blue sky was encircled by a ring of high cumulus clouds over Washington state

This Steller’s Jay pranced along the log in front of us as if to say “Look at Me”. This shot shows him poised for take-off

Not a bad selfie, if I do say so myself


Shining waters

surf’s up….briefly. shortly after this shot weas taken, he was down

from a distance, this appeared to be a wooden tiki statue – Bart, is that you?

After 40 minutes soaking it all in, we walked back to the car

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. Thanks Lynette. This place was idyllic for sure. There are so many beaches along this stretch of coast, but this was the best we had seen. Thanks for reading. Allan
