We drug Youngest's friend Su with us out to Kalaloch. My family has been to Ocean Shores in the past, but we hadn't experienced Kalaloch. I'm all up for visiting places we've never seen before.
But . . .
my planning skills leave a little to be desired.
There are approximately 4 lodges/motels/campgrounds within a 100 mile radius of our destination. And waiting until 2 days before departure to make reservations? You won't be surprised to learn that the only vacancy I could find was at The Bates Motel.
During check in, Mister started mysteriously--and profusely--bleeding all over the desk. Seriously.
After that little episode, the trip was great. Except for my inexcusable moodiness. Unless you count the hormone peak 2 days prior to my period as excusable . . .
Beach 4 at Kalaoch, Olympic National Forest
Where the continent comes to a lovely halt and the endless, beautiful Pacific Ocean takes over. I am awed by this.

Payback is a wet, cold bitch. Good on ya, Su!
