Ruby Beach at Sunset

August 12th, 2003 · 10 Comments

Forks, like many of the small towns in the peninsula is tiny. Many of the people living there are loggers or are working in shops and restaurants that serve the tourists. There’s not much money in these small towns.

Stopped to eat in Forks, WA.

Driftwood was piled up all over the shore – near the woods.

The rocks on the beach were all rounded.

What makes Ruby Beach unique are the sea stacks.

This rock formation had a hole in the center.

This other formation had a hole also. It was much bigger than the hole in the other one. Probably about 8 feet tall.

After hiking to Marymore Falls and enjoying the sun around Lake Crescent, we headed to the coast to see the ocean and to drive down to our hotel in Ocean Shores for the night. We stopped in Forks to eat at this restaurant.

Stumbling upon Ruby Beach on the Washington coast at sunset was one of the best parts of my entire vacation. It was one of the most beautiful and amazing things I’ve seen in my life.

    Negril, Jamaica had some pretty awesome sunsets. Its on the west side of the island, so every night we got to see the sun set over the ocean.

    I was at Ruby Beach year before last, and I’m thinking about going back this year. It’s a great place. I’d really love to get out to Destruction Island out there. =)
