We got up early and braved the cooler weather and occasional rain to visit Saltar's Point Beach in Steilacoom. We arrived at low tide and our reward was a lot of sea life. We saw at least 20 Sea Stars: both in and out of the water, baby crabs, lots of birds, and numerous critters inhabiting some pretty awesome shells. My favorite was the orange Sea Star and Cheyanne's favorite was seeing so many different shapes and colors of Sea Stars. We were very fortunate to have the whole beach to ourselves. What an experience!

Owen Beach

July 3, 2009

Dona had a setback this week when she found out on Tuesday that she had a blood clot in her right leg. All of her PT appointments had to be cancelled for the week and she was told to stay active but not over do it (Keep your fingers crossed that the clot is reducing in size. She has a recheck next Tuesday). On Friday we left Dona home to rest and Cheyanne and I headed to Point Defiance Park. We ate ice cream at the Marina while watching people fishing off the piers and then headed down to Owen beach. Cheyanne wasn't able to build any sandcastles because the beach was too rocky so we just enjoyed the sunshine and water.

Sunnyside Beach
Today was really fun. I got to build my first sandcastle and play on the beach. I saw a lot of really cool rocks in the water. Can't wait to go back. - Chey

Waiting to board the plane for Washington.

Cheyanne and I headed out on June 28th to help Dona out after double knee replacement surgery.

We had clear skies until right before landing. The view of Mt. Rainer was fantastic. I was so excited that I forgot to take pictures until we headed into the clouds.
