Yesterday we went to Long Beach which is in Washington. For us it's about a 3.5 hour drive there. I prefer the sandy beach because I can walk barefoot which is nice and the drive is also nice, especially now that my dad doesn't drive too fast lol.
On the way we saw several critters make a mad dash across the road. Each one made it, thankfully, but as we drove they started getting bigger. First was a mouse, then a squirrel, then a larger critter .. I pretty much figured that if this kept up we'd eventually have a bear "scamper" across.
The beach was fun but we won't be returning to that one for a while.
