The two RV Gypsies (plus one) at
Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge
in Washington state.
June 26, 2015

history clipart bookThe Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is located near the town of Sequim in Clallam County in the U.S. state of Washington, on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The refuge is composed of 772 acres which include Dungeness Spit, Graveyard Spit, and portions of Dungeness Bay and Harbor. Dungeness Spit is one of the world's longest natural sand spits, 5.5 miles long and very narrow. A lighthouse, the New Dungeness Light, built in 1857, is located near the end of the spit. Access to Dungeness Spit is through a Clallam County Park which has hiking trails, picnic areas, and a campground. On January 20, 1915, it was designated as a National Wildlife Refuge by President Woodrow Wilson. Day users must buy a pass for $10. The weather was terrible and the two RV Gypsies did not get to do much in this refuge.

Below is a Decomposition Timeline. It is amazing, and hopefully will wake some people up about waste and recycling.

A very dreary, cloudy, windy day did not allow for great photos looking down onto the beach from Dungeness Harbor Overlook. The two RV Gypsies took the short, but steep hike down to the beach.

Karen asked Lee to hold her hat while she pulled up her hoodie so he wore the hat while on the beach.
