Banks Lake rock, September 2010

Made a couple trips out to the Banks Lake/Grand Coulee Dam area to soak-in some end-of-summer rays and explore the scenery and nearby rock climbing. If the setting alone, not to mention the limitless climbing potential here isnít enough to invigorate your soul, then might I suggest a visit to your psychiatrist? Granted, the drive out here is a fair bit longer than your tried-and-true Leavenworth weekend getaway. But if are looking to escape the autumnal Seattle rains for the weekend and have tired of the same old same old, you could do worse than spend some time climbing granite in this unlikely desert oasis.

Ocean Shores surfing, September 2010

Agata and I spent a rainy labor day weekend out on the coast, staying at Lupo's vacation house in Ocean Shores. Didn't do too much except check out the local scenery and spend a couple hours flailing about in the surf adjacent to the jetty. I had always been told that the surfing across the bay at Westport is better than Ocean Shores, and now I know this to be true. I also wanted to check out a supposedly classic break near Point Grenville up north along the coast, but we never got around to it. Supposedly the surf is now off limits to anyone except maybe with the approval of the Quinalt tribe.
