Sequim Bay

sunriseHi Guys! It’s Liv (aka Girl). This post is about Sequim Bay. I hope you like it!

Sequim Bay (pronounced Squim) is amazing. There are many opportunities to hike, bike, boat and be outdoors. Our camp site was really close to the bay. So when I got to take Stella on walks I took her down to the bay. I was looking at the ocean with binoculars and saw an otter. One morning I woke up really late and my dad told me that an otter was teasing him. I told him I wasn’t surprised because otters are funny.

I went on a hike and it was so beautiful. When we got back from the hike we went to the river. There was a really good swimming hole. The water was the prettiest color teal and I liked that I could cross all of the river rocks. My mom did something amazing. She built this tall rock pyramid. She put tiny rock stacks on the rock pyramid. It looked like a rock castle!

After the hike we went biking on the Olympic Discovery Trail. There were many different color leaves on the trail and we could peek at the bay through the trees. At one point we got to get off our bikes and pick blackberries. Everyone of them were a different flavor. They were the best blackberries ever! I felt like a black bear grabbing blackberries and stuffing them in my mouth. It was so delicious. When we finally stopped eating blackberries we kept on riding. After a few minutes down the path we saw some people picking blackberries and putting them in a bucket. It was a great idea!

Not everyone can visit Sequim but if you go to Washington go to Sequim Bay!


Mount Lassen and my first fish

Hi Blog followers! Liv here (aka Girl). This post is about Mount Lassen. I hope you like it!

When I first got to Mount Lassen I noticed that the trees were mossy. I loved the sound of the river rushing. It sounded like it was going really fast. I’ve never seen blackish and orange-ish lava rocks before. I learned that these rocks are in the area because a long time ago there was a volcano that erupted. When the lava cooled, the rocks were formed. The lava rocks had lots of holes in them.

We went on a really cool hike and after the hike we went down to the river to cool off and fish. It took a lot of casts, but I caught my first fish! But the truth was, I was really creeped out by the fish once it caught my line. It was massive! You’d be surprised! My fish was one foot long. My dad held it, and I did my best to stay away from him. My heart was beating so fast and I was whimpering to myself. It was cool to catch my first fish, but scary to see the fish flopping around.

The morning we were leaving I peaked out of my tent window. I saw two big animals. At first I thought they were coyotes but they turned out to be jackrabbits. They were big with huge, tall ears. They had a little, fluffy tail.

I loved this place. I wish we could have stayed another day.
