For a couple years now we’ve taken mini-camping trips to Westport in October. The weather at this time of year can be absolutely stunning, and we were not disappointed this year. The skies were so blue that I thought they looked almost fake in my photos. This year we camped at the Twin Harbor’s State Park because our usual Grayland State Park was full for the weekend. Mid-week we would not have had any problem getting a site at Grayland, but since we had our grandson with us, we were confined to the weekend.
The thing that attracts us to Westport in the fall is the large number of pelicans that you’ll find flying over the water close to shore. It’s also likely you’ll find sea lions sunbathing on docks in the marina. And then of course, there is the Grays Harbor Lighthouse. On this trip, we paid the $5 each to take the tour to the top and had fun photographing the spiral staircase and the lamp at the top.
