Spending a few hours in Sequim raises a myriad of options. On this particular day, February 28th, 2015, I finished my breakfast, armed myself with my camera, and took a walk around our property. It was delightful to see hundreds of Daffodils, glistening in the sunshine.
There were snow white flowers surprisingly abloom in the shade.
It was an ideal day to take pictures around Sequim! My first stop was the John Wayne Marina. After parking, I walked towards the Pitship Pocket Estuary.
A short time later, I headed towards Sequim Bay. The seagulls, ducks, and blackbirds were basking in the sunshine.
After concluding the seagull photo session, my next stop was the iRealty Virtual Broker office “hub,” where I dropped off my computer. Snapping a quick shot of the blooming Azalea, I headed towards the Dungeness Recreation Area.
These deer were all happily eating grass on a property across from Voice of America Road, the entrance for the Dungeness Rec Area. After presenting the Annual Pass for the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge, I completed the envelope, and tucked the Permit portion in my camera bag. This pass entitled unlimited visits to this refuge only, at a cost of only $12.00. Otherwise, all the following passes are accepted: Interagency Annual Pass, Refuge Annual Pass, Golden Age/Senior Pass, Federal Duck Stamp, and Gold Access/Access Pass. A Pass entitles entry for up to (4) people total (16+). The Daily permit, without a pass, is $3 for up to (4) people total (16+). Children under 16, enter at no expense. I hiked down to the Dungeness Spit and allowed the beauty to take me away.
After hiking back up to the Dungeness Rec Area, this shot was taken from a pullout. This trail is currently along the bluff. Erosion issues may cause this to be moved soon.
A vision not unlike that of a soaring bird…
Majestic eagles top their perch.
Sequim is a rich agricultural area.
The Olympics are illuminated in the distance…
This is truly an adventure you can experience in just a few hours. Stay tuned for more!
