February was just one sunny weekend after another! On Sunday, three weeks ago, M and I headed up to San Juan Island for the day. Tough day.
San Juan is mainly bedrock, so beaches are scattered and usually fairly small. But at Cattle Point a thick pile of gravel has been eroding for centuries, spreading itself along the shore to form this beautiful long beach.
The beach faces across the Strait of Juan de Fuca towards the Olympic Mountains - a little hazy on this particular day. The back beach is probably one of the larger accumulations of drift wood on the Salish Sea.
