Exploring Ruby Beach On The Washington Coast

 Note: this is the third in a series of blogs I have been doing about our vacation in Washington state

A Sunrise Run On Ruby Beach
 One of the things we enjoyed most during our stay at the Kalaloch Lodge was exploring the nearby beaches. One very early morning, my husband and I dragged our teens out of bed to visit Ruby Beach, 8 miles north of the lodge. When they got to the beach, they both decided it was well worth it. The tide was low, the sea stacks were exposed, there were tidepools to explore, pristine sand for running, and hardly any people (Ruby beach can get crowded during summer afternoons).

Here are the photos to prove it:





 

 



If you go: This is definitely not a swimming beach because of dangerous tides and the cold. Also, I recommend swim shoes for exploring the tide pools; they'll protect your feet from sharp rocks and keep them warm too!

For more information about Ruby Beach, including directions, click on the Kalaloch website.

Next week - some photos of "Beach 4!"
