A Month Of Sundays: Day14 (#542)

I wonder why people spell the name of their town one way but pronounce it another way.  Like the town I am in now: Sequim, Washington.  I said See-quim like it is spelled.  They say Squim.  

“Squim” has totems everywhere.  I felt like I was visiting  a foreign land.

Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge a few miles from Squim encompasses a spit which is a narrow strip of land that juts 5 miles out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

So I drove there and walked down a very steep hill out onto the spit which is basically a beach (about 30 feet wide) that is covered with very large pieces of driftwood, basically whole trees.

I walked along enjoying the warmth of the sun, the sound of the waves lapping against the shore; unaware of the distance I was covering.   By the time I got back to my car, I had walked 8 miles.

Thankful for a beautiful sunny day and a good long walk ~

    This place looks like Alaska. When I lived in Knoxville, they called it Knoxvull.
