Great Report! I'm planning a trip there in May and I've never been before so now I'm extra excited to go. I may end up in Oregon which is my second home but I may have to give this a try.

Thanks BeerSnob for posting a wonderful report. Great job!

This was my first beach hike and it certainly is much different experience than hiking on mountains. Our progress was very slow on rocky beaches as we had to watch every step. I even got discouraged a bit (that's why the "The "trail" - smile Rada” comment by BeerSnob). I'm just not used to being so slow. I can still hardly believe that I was more tired after 16 km of beach walking with 0 m elevation gain than after 32 km of hiking to Panorama Ridge in snow with 1590m elevation gain!

Nevertheless, I really enjoyed the trip, it was easygoing and relaxing. I loved those long sandy beaches, strange rock formations, big waves, relaxing around the campfire, looking at the starry sky and beautiful sunsets. It was all worth it! Thanks a lot Tash for organizing the trip.

Awesome trip report!
It great to hear that you guys had a good time and the weather held out for you for most of the trip.

I thought a lot about you guys when doing my own beach hikes in the Semihamoo/ Birch Bay area.

Sorry for posting so late but I wanted to sit down and give it a good read.
Hope to see you on the trails again soon!

Very nice. Looks like you made a great choice of weekends. Quiet this time of year and you lucked out with the weather. Thanks.

it's nice to revisit this trip report again.

My favourite CT feature is the Top10 with the Year Ago...Three Years Ago retro-CT trip reports.

After checking the new posts, I go to Top10 every day to check out top photos and check out trip reports from days gone by.

What an awesome feature.

Oh, just noticed it was 3 years ago, and I was thinking, "Hey, nobody told me about this!!"

Beautiful pictures. I've been wanting to go down there for years, but I never have.

When I did this in 92, we did it north tpo south and there was a dead whale on the beach. Strangely enough the dead whale is the part I remember now. But when I read about the sand giving out north of Hole in the Wall some memories came galloping back, cause when you go the other way and you hit that sand at HitW it's home free, no more boulders!!

Tracy, I had the same reaction. I didn't notice TR was from 3 years ago, and was wondering how come Alan didn't tell me he went to Olympic Coast when I saw him yesterday.

This TR brings back good memories. I was wondering couple of weeks ago where it was that I broke TNF frisbee, and couldn't remember. I thought it was somewhere during my travels. This TR explains... I'm getting old, I keep forgetting things.

Did you get special permission to use the word "Olympic" in your post? If not, you would be advised to rename it before a beachful of 2010 lawyers descend on your post.

I saw this Trip Report, and thought "That's weird, it's posted by me [:0]".

Ohhhh right - it's all coming back now []
