A long walk on Long Beach

In honor of summer winding down, I headed to the coast with Dana and her dog Dodger again.  This time we went to Long Beach, Washington.  It was my first visit to Long Beach.  Despite the forecast for the day, we had the most amazing weather- summer is here to stay in the Pacific Northwest.  Here are some photos along the way.
