>Memories of a Snowy Lighthouse


2008 was the year…our first Christmas living along the shores of the Pacific. We had just moved from the frigid cold and hip deep snow of Eastern Washington to, what we thought was, a warmer climate where snow was a rarity. The Long Beach Peninsula  can be found in the southwest corner of Washington and in comparison to where we came from it was certainly warmer! Warmer, but we still got hit by a bit of a snowstorm that year.

One of my favorite spots in the world is Cape Disappointment State Park so we decided to jump in the Jeep and head down to the North Head Lighthouse.

Liz was "stuck" with us for an extra long Holiday visit because of canceled air flights; but it worked out well as we got to share this wonderful experience with her.

    >My husband and I grew up on the Long Beach Peninsula or at the "Beach" as it is affectionately called. We still visit in the summer as his brother and mother still live in this beautiful spot. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures.
