Cape Disappointment Again

Here's part two of our July adventures...
After our hike and before we headed up to Colville for the mission trip, we took a family camping trip to Cape Disappointment State Park. It doesn't disappoint. :-) I think this was the fourth time we've gone there to camp. There are some really nice camping sites we enjoy using--lots of space, surrounded by trees, and just couple minutes' walk from the beach. It's a great place for pictures, so here's a selection of things that caught my eye.

We had a lot of fun with this piece of driftwood.

Something new this year was seeing a nest of baby swallows in the cliff side. It was fun to watch them come to the edge for food, then go back inside their little "cave."

The campground is surrounded by lots of evergreen trees. The ground below them is just a continuous carpet of thick moss.

The last night Christina and I took a walk on the beach after sunset. We could see lights from several boats on the horizon. 

One thing we really enjoy about Cape Disappointment is North Head Lighthouse. It's fun to see it shining at night.
