Nancy and Steve told me that I should be sure to visit Ruby Beach and Kalaloch in Olympic National Park. Therefore, I made that my first agenda item for my first full day of sightseeing. I was extremely impressed! It was gorgeous and quite unique from other beaches I have visited.

Sections of the beach were rugged and there was more river rock that sand in a number of sections of the beach.

Sometime there was a hazy mist that would blow onto the beach from the ocean that created some fun scenes.

The mist drifting in from the ocean made interesting scenes.

I especially liked seeing the “sea stacks” made of rugged rock on the edge of the beach. Some of the settings were spectacular.

The surf was powerful.

As I was heading back to the Jeep, two teenagers were pointing into the water as there was a seal swimming nearby. I wish I had a larger telephoto, but if you use your imagination, there is a seal swimming in the water!

Use your imagination and you can see a seal in the wild swimming along the beach.
