Elvis is in the Building

Ocean Shores may be a tourist town, but it has its little town foibles as well. One of these are the "off season" shows, events and festivals that occur. For example, the Ocean Shores Food Bank hosted an "Illusion of Elvis" that was performed by "tribute artist" Danny Vernon. The show was actually quite good and the Food Bank raised a fair bit of money.

One might wonder just how seriously an event should be taken that is held on April 1st. No kidding!

Ocean Park Present

Nancy's parents lived in the Ocean Park house, shown above. It is a double-wide with a detached garage. It was yellow when they lived there. Once or twice a year we go to visit. The neighbors and Nancy are shown below.


Tree of Life at Kalaloch Beach, Washington State
A week ago, my daughters and I went up from Ocean Shores to visit Kalaloch and "The Tree of Life." Along the way, we took a short detour to see the World's largest SpruceTree, which is on Lake Quinault.

One BIG Spruce!
As we left Kalaloch, we saw some migrating Gray Whales. Mostly, you could just see when they spouted air, but you could also see an occasional fin. They were pretty close to shore, so it was a real treat.
