Washaway Beach & Willapa Bay

Willapa Bay is fairly shallow, half of the volume of water inside it enters and leaves with every tide and creates a dynamic ecosystem that includes mud tidal flats and salt marshes. These, in turn support vast beds of eel grass and shellfish. And during the spring migration over 100,000 shorebirds stop here to eat and rest before continuing their journey north. Additionally, there is a large year-round bird population.

A hundred years ago, the community of North Cove was on Cape Shoalwater. Since 1911, the shore has eroded 100-150 feet per year. During the 1920s, over 30 homes were claimed by erosion or relocated. In the years that followed, erosion destroyed a lighthouse, a life-saving station, a clam cannery, a school, and a Grange Hall. Erosion also forced the relocation of a cemetery and State Highway 105. In recent decades, erosion has destroyed 20 homes, private property, and part of the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. In 1976-77, the pioneer cemetery and Washington highway 105 were threatened with erosion and moved to their present location. In 1995, WA-105 was again threatened by erosion and the Washington State Department of Transportation constructed a $27 million submerged groin and beach fill to protect area cranberry bogs as well as the highway.



During my exploration of Washaway Beach and Cape Shoalwater on August 21, I found two homes on the short stretch of what is left of old Highway 105. Since my return home, I discovered that one of the residents has a photo journal of Washaway Beach here on WordPress at http://washawaybeachthisweek.wordpress.com/ with much more detail than I was able to manage.



In a way, it is fascinating to see the power of Nature. From another perspective, it was sobering to realize the forces that are continually at work here, reshaping the shoreline, destroying wildlife habitat as well as homes. I find it remarkable that there hasn’t been a program on PBS or the Discovery Channel; there is so much here to explore and learn about.

I came to Willapa Bay on my way to Westport to buy fresh albacore. I chose this route to learn more about Washaway Beach. I did learn quite a bit along the way and had the added bonus of seeing lots and lots of birds. My only frustration was the lack of places to pull safely off the road to get a closer look.










If you would like to see more information about how Washaway Beach earned it's name and what I saw there, visit my Word Press blog at:
http://briarcraft.wordpress.com/2014/08/23/washaw ay-beach-and-willapa-bay/


But wait! There's more. You can have two blogs from one day trip. In a week or two, I will post another blog about what I saw in Westport.

In the mean time, something smells fishy around here.

I now have 54 half-pint jars of delicious albacore tuna to share with my parents and brother. Each canner load has to process at 10PSI for 110 minutes. What with heat-up and cool-down times, I finished last night (or early this morning) at 1:30AM. The pressure canner and all those jars are coated with a thin film of fish oil. The house reeks of fish, though I can no longer smell it unless I go outside for at least 15 minutes. I have had a leisurely day so far, but I simply must go clean jars and canner and my work area to get rid of that lingering fishy smell.

WW: I am here on a mission to see who has the migraine? You? or Pros? Or someone else? I could not figure it out even though I was trying to read between the lines over on Pros's blog.
I picked it up in Prose's blog, comment 17 and 18, where Ylee was inquiring about her migraine. I don't currently have one, but get one or two every month, so I can sympathize with her.

I have made pies from home grown sugar pumpkins. First cut the pumpkin in half (easier said than done sometimes) and scoop out the seeds. Put the halves cut-side down on a baking sheet and bake at 350° until the meat is soft. Depending on the size that will take an hour or more. Cool. Then scoop out the meat and press it through a sieve to remove any strings. I have tried steaming and microwaving the pumpkin at various times, but the resulting pulp is too wet.

As to the pie filling, I use the Libby's recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/libbys-famous-pumpkin- pie-101104 except instead of 3/4 cup white sugar, I use 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. And if your pumpkin puree comes out a bit runny, reduce the amount of evaporated milk.

One secret I learned from my mother to avoid a soggy pie crust when making pumpkin or custard pie is to freeze the pie crust (in a non-glass pie pan) first. Pour the liquid filling into the frozen crust and pop it immediately into a hot oven.

Sandi: You peel the apples before turning them into puree for applesauce? I never do more than wash and quarter them, removing the core and any bruised spots. Then I steam them in a large kettle and press through a sieve. Puree without the bother of peeling. Try it, you'll like it.

Ylee: I want a t-shirt, too!

Okay, Briar, I am back on a mission to check on you? Are you down from a migraine and can't get up? I surely hope that is not the case. I never got anyone to say whether it was you with the migraine or someone else. Hope you are feeling better if so.

"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get"

Ain't that the case!!

When I was working I usually managed one "extra" job a week, like sorting out the kitchen drawers, or laundering the cushion covers, or cleaning behind the fridge etc, but now I am retired I try to do two a week.....except when I am busy writing, which take precedence. I got so far behind, that yesterday I picked the apples, puréed about 50 of them, (peeling them made my hand ache otherwise I might have done more.). I then set to and cleaned out the crockery cupboard. I had ordered a new everyday dinner set from Amazon, which arrived and had nowhere to go until I "recycled" many of the odd plates and dishes that had accumulated. Once that was done, off to the charity shop to take the bag of clothes which I did last week, and the odd crockery! When I had finished, I realised the day was almost over!!

Thanks, Briar! I did draw that one night last week after I got in bed. I had been caught without any rabbits before. So I decided to draw some spunky looking ones and included those red flowers similar to the impatiens we had been talking about around the blog.

I am here on a mission to see who has the migraine? You? or Pros? Or someone else? I could not figure it out even though I was trying to read between the lines over on Pros's blog.

Speaking of bumpkins - pumpkins - I have a cute little pumpkin pie pumpkin just waiting to be baked up in a pie. Does anyone have a simple recipe? I probably need to cook that cute little thing very soon.

Or is there something better than pie that I could make?

Okay....bedtime on my side of the country. Have a great evening.

WW: I don't care much for rabbits, since they are very destructive to my garden and flowers, but I have to say that your White Rabbits graphic is the cutest I have seen in ages. I know you drew it, so that makes it even more special. And I am NOT just saying that to be nice -- I mean it!

GG: There was a lot of action on the wildlife cam over the weekend. I got 4 good 20-second videos on Saturday, plus 5 more that were triggered by the breeze. Then on Sunday, there were 10 videos all with zero bytes, so I popped in 4 new AAs and put the cam back out. Now I have 4 more to play with. And the mystery is solved. All that is needed is 3-4 hours to put it all together. Having a cam with a motion sensor and infrared is a great way to solve mysteries -- as long as the batteries are good.

Hey there, Prose! I hope you have a good month, too.

Sandi: Even though I'm a country bumpkin, I do have an appreciation for public art, especially life-sized bronzes. And thanks to making this month-long challenge, I did some research and discovered Vancouver, WA, has some nice art, too, that I didn't know about. Definitely gotta check that out.




Okay, so I have part 2 of my recent trip to the coast to blog about. I've got a video to edit. And I haven't been around to visit WU in the longest time. Fall is definitely in the air. This morning and yesterday morning, the low temp was 45°. There is no denying fall is on the way when the overnight lows dip below 50°. And tomorrow will be 3 minutes, 12 seconds shorter than today. Yikes!

The hurrier I go, the behinder I get, so I had better get to getting, but I did want to let you know I have not fallen off the end of the earth -- I am just out playing in the dirt. And now and then, when I stop to stretch and look around me, I see something worth shooting, so I quick grab the camera. I've got a few dozen photos in my camera right now, but they won't spoil.

Hi Briar! HOpe you are having a great Sunday afternoon. I just went out for a 93 degree flat mile walk since I skipped walking yesterday and early morn today. Well, if you count walking through the cow and horse pature down to the pond and back plus a zillion stairs, guess I did walk a bit yesterday. At any rate the heat was not too bad until I stopped to talk to a friend. Then suddenly my body realized it was hot. I was planning to just walk to the end of the street and back. Since it did not feel too bad I went on and walked the whole mile as I don't think it will really cool down before dark for a second walk. I really liked the naked lady flower and how special is that, that it came from your mother, she got it from her mother who knows where hers came from. A generation heirloom - that is special. Thank you for sharing.

GG: The Double-Clicks named 5 games we like to play, Settlers of Catan being the first. Cute song.

Ylee, Sandi, Poppy: The wildlife cam has been on the job for almost 36 hours now and I'm curious to see if the mystery will be solved.

Prose: "And you travel, write, photograph, etc., today's version of a Renaissance woman!" Thank you!!! When I have paused to wonder how others think of me, I have described myself as eccentric, ecclectic, odd-ball, independent, or a variety of other descriptors, depending on my mood. I am honored that you have named me a Renaissance woman. That seems like something to be proud of, and definitely preferrable to most of the adjectives I have thought up.

Sandi: We picked the Asian pears today. To me, they are crisp like an apple, but taste like a regular pear. The box of them weighs about 20 pounds, so I estimate the pears alone at 18 pounds (8 Kg). They are not as large as the ones in the supermarket that cost $1.50 to $2.00 each. They keep fairly well, so as they turn yellow, I will put them in the fridge to enjoy fresh and to share with family. Enjoy your apples!

YOR: The tuna in jars would keep for years, if given the chance. In fact, we have found that it is tastier a few months after canning than it is immediately. The natural oils separate from the meat in the pressure cooker, so my theory is that aging allows the meat to marinate and absorb back some of the fish oil.

WW: You were the first to read my latest blog on WP, before I posted the condensed version here, and you did leave me a nice comment. Thankyouverymuch!

I knew your son would come back from his trip to Africa just fine, but I am glad that your mind can be at rest about it now. Feelings and maternal instinct don't always agree with logic, nor should they.

Yes, that is my brother's music.

Mike: If you ever make it to visit the Washington coast, I would love to show you Washaway Beach and Float 20 in Westport (you'll see about that in my next blog).

WTS: I managed to navigate to my latest photos through the blog sidebar and deleted them. WU still thinks I have -1 series and when I go to My Photos, it says I don't have any. I think the problem may have been that I uploaded the maximum of 10 at a time, sent them for approval, and then uploaded a map "for my blog" before the first 10 had been approved. That probably jammed up the works, but still lots of NUWU malfunctions. to contend with or work around.

WTS, YOR, WW, and future viewers: I have used the wildlife cam with its motion sensor to capture photos before. This is the first time I set it to take 10 second videos when it sensed movement. Once it captures a video, it then goes to sleep for 10 minutes before it will take another video. For the next chapter of What's in That Hole?, I have set the camera to shoot 20 second videos. We'll see what that reveals.

Stock up on popcorn!

Mike: Since you only other drive up US-101 was in rain and snow, you really ought to try it once in nice weather. There is so much to see, not just on the coast but in the Olympic rain forest. You probably missed the famous rose garden in Victoria, BC, as well.

Briar, I have been up 101 in spring and summer as far north as Seaside, OR. But not Washington...only once in the rain and snow. I have seen Butchart Gardens in the autumn and spring. The autumn trip I flew up and spring trip drove. Went inland on I-5 through Washington to get to the ferry to stay on schedule. Yes, I hope to someday get back there and see more of Washington.

I got a kick out of watching these women trying to get their lucky toss shot in Butchart Gardens. It took about three takes, lol

Good Morning. Heck almost afternoon. Not sure what possessed me to sleep until after 10am. Need to get outside and refill the bird feeders. My summer pictures are going to be the open beaked panting birds during our hot afternoons. Am hoping to catch them splashing in the water pan I put out for them.

Hi Briar, Glad you have come up for air after all of the canning and tripping and before the apple/pear job. Thought I had left first comment here but think I must have left first comment before you got the blog up here on WU! Not too much going on with me other than just usual stuff. My son had a safe to, during, and from the CONGO. He returned on Sunday. He came down yesterday - Tuesday - for a visit. It was good to see him and hear all about his adventures and accomplishments while there.

I found beautiful moneky grass blooms in a friend's yard on Monday. After seeing it, I have noticed it in bloom all around town. Don't think I had ever seen or noticed blooms on monkey grass ever before. Nature is all around us and so much of it we never even see. Have a wonderful rest of the week. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving commnets.

I looked at all the apples on the ground after the last three days of rain and wind.... yes, it is time to pick and peel and stew and freeze! My pears are Concorde, a very hard version, so they will be a few more weeks, yet. 
But I have sun today, so I might just be able to get a summer shot!   Also the wasp man is coming again today.  He never got them all last time... they are still there!

I am amazed that you processed 54 jars of tuna! I always thought that tuna came in a can off the grocery stores! You are amazing, a modern woman with homey old fashioned canning ideas! I do not mean this as a criticism but as a compliment. And you travel, write, photograph, etc., today's version of a Renaissance woman!

Is it time to pick the Asian Pears?

Maybe so. I found a pear on the ground this morning. With most tree fruits, when the first one falls, that means time to pick the rest, even though they may not be entirely ripe.

GG: Since you are a B&W master, I'll take that as a compliment. Not quite a point-and-shoot image, though. I took several shots with the Fuji HS20 using different shutter speeds.

Mike: Since you only other drive up US-101 was in rain and snow, you really ought to try it once in nice weather. There is so much to see, not just on the coast but in the Olympic rain forest. You probably missed the famous rose garden in Victoria, BC, as well.

Poppy: Sequim is very close to the Olympic mountains and not that far from the rain forest. You have the potential for lots of exploration and photo ops on your way to/from visiting son and DIL in Sequim.



Tomorrow, it's off to visit brother, who has put his Longview house up for sale and moved into his new home in Vancouver WA. It was built in 1910, but has been fully updated with vinyl siding, central heat, a modern kitchen, and a full basement. This will be much better for his organ refurbishing and sales business because many of his customers are just across the river in Portland.

With these great pics I can hardly wait for my son and DIL to buy their house up by Sequim. Since they won't be moving up there for a couple of years it will be a great excuse for a vacation up to Washington to help them with the fixing up of their home. And see your beautiful coast!!!

Enjoy your albacore, sounds like the work is worth it!!

Another interesting tale of erosion, Briar. Nice tour also! I drove along Hwy 101 in that area about 25 years ago on an afternoon winter day. It was raining and we were also trying to get to the car ferry at Port Angeles to go over to Victoria, BC. So only just got glimpses of the views as we sped along the highway. We ended up the travelling day in a blinding snowstorm in the Olympic mountains which was beautiful also despite it being dark most of the way and literally slid into Port Angeles. The next morning we took the ferry over to BC in some rather raw weather. Then parked the car in the Empress Hotel garage and watched the snow coming down out the windows next to a warm fire whilst enjoying their High Tea service, lol.

Sandi: BTW I see all the five bird photos in your WU photo section, where it says you have 390 photos? Perhaps WU was having a "Bad Panda" moment!!
The problem is, I posted 10 photos and sent them all in for approval at once. I can only access them through the recent four in the sidebar and then I do not get to see the rest of the series. I went to upload the missing photos again, but they appear to be waiting for me to send them for approval. When I click that button, the little rainbow circle spins forever, but nothing happens. WU photos are still broken for me hours later.

Yes, you and I were linked on our recent trips to the shore. At times, I even felt that I was consulting with you about camera settings and composition.

GG: If I had gotten one of those polarizing circular filters like you have, I could probably have shot that silhouette scene if full, vibrant color, but I am not unhappy with the B&W.

WTS: It's good to know I'm not the only one who sees that I have -1 series. At least now I know I'm not delusional.

As I understand, the last couple of houses at Washaway were purchased for something like $10,000 several years ago. They are uninsurable, of course, but people bought them as temporary vacation or retirement homes with the idea that it was cheaper than a time-share and they would enjoy it more while the homes lasted.

Ylee: Thanks for the confirmation. I thought you should be able to see them, since you can post on WP. That means I don't have to bother trying to post blog photos on WU any more, which is a relief since they have either messed up photo uploading big time or decided to get even with me for complaining about all the "improvements".




Well, I scrubbed out the pressure canner and used extra Dawn detergent cleaning the outside of all the jars. The house itself has aired out fairly well, though when I go into the kitchen and stand near the jars, I still smell something fishy.

Two jars failed to seal, so they have been refrigerated for now. Tomorrow, I will make some tuna salad so it won't be wasted.

But wait! I recall another tagline - Why wait! (call now) ;)

Nice blog - coastal erosion is a hot topic. Should nature maintain its course or should people intervene (temporarily, usually, depending on your time scale). Here most of the discussion is about sea walls to protect the expensive houses people want at the cliff edge - but what a view, for a while ;) I am somewhat inclined to let nature do its thing, but then I don't live at the coast.

Nice catch of the heron, he's after something! Maybe the 54 jars of albacore, yum..

BTW, I see the problem. You have -1 series! Come on WU.

Impressive blog and canning day. Love the shot of the great blue heron and back lit pelicans.

Sea, beach, grasses, erosion and birds....are you sure there wasn't something strange happening on Thursday, some invisible link?

All I can say is your erosion is happening faster then mine:-(

BTW I see all the five bird photos in your WU photo section, where it says you have 390 photos? Perhaps WU was having a "Bad Panda" moment!!
