Here's a relaxing scene. The weather has been fantastic - until today - and I expected there to be boats on the water in large numbers to take advantage of the Fourth of July weekend. Today there's heavy overcast and mist. It gives us respite from the heatwave going on inland and may bring more people to the beach to cool off.
I'm posting this photo to show just how big the piers on the bridge really are. They're huge! The small boat gives a sense of scale as well as carefree abandon as it crests the waves under the huge structure on its way toward the mouth of the great Columbia. The weekend is here, and already as I wrote this on Friday afternoon the roads were packed with visitors from inland who enjoy vacation time out on the coast. We'll see how the day turns out. I've watched fireworks in the drizzle more than once!
