$15: South Beach Campground, Olympic National Park (Washington state)
Weather on the Olympic Peninsula is fickle. One day it’ll be glorious, the next…
When it rains, people sometime leave campgrounds – even the coveted water-side spots.
You can then take that spot.
The woman with the fabulous blue vintage trailer was pulling out, and I asked her if she had promised her site to anyone. She said no, and I put my red folding chair on the picnic table.
Later, it stops raining, and the clouds begin to clear.
I don’t know if she was leaving because her trip was scheduling to end, or because of the weather.
Does it matter?
So, we burned some flame-retardant wood bought at the Kalaloch Lodge Store. Mostly smoke. Not much fire.
But who cares, with a view like this?
Fifteen dollars well spent.
