Even in the winter we have to hit the beach.
Looking through our adventures you would think I have a thing for lighthouses. I do not, they just happen to be at beaches.
Hansville, Washington is home to Point No Point.
I love to having access to rad beaches so close to home. We don’t have to pack or plan anything, so I don’t feel as bad when I’m tired and am ready to head out.
We usually just walk along the beach and watch the waves roll in. Tucker loves to fill his pockets with treasures. That just happens to be rocks the size of baseballs.

Point No Point has a tall staircase that leads into a beautiful wooded area and a lookout over the water. It’s hard to convey just how daunting a simple staircase can be. I managed to slowly climb it with three stops for rest. You just have to keep moving forward.

I live in NorCal (Humboldt County) and can actually see the beach from my living room window – it’s really a 5 minute drive for me. I love the ocean so much, it brings me such peace. I’m not a super-emotional person, but reading this post made me cry. I didn’t even realize that I’ve avoided the beach since I got diagnosed in December. I think because I’m afraid that I won’t love it as much now… walking through sand will be more difficult than it should be. Climbing dunes might feel like climbing mountains. I miss the beach and I didn’t realize until now how much I’ve missed it, or how much I just let MS interfere with that. I’m glad I read this. I’m going to make it a point to go to the beach today or tomorrow. Thank you. 🙂
I am so happy to hear that you are going to the beach. That right there is why I started Wheels & Red. The sand can be tricky but I just take my time. This trip was before this current flare got all uppity. I hope you have an awesome trek to the beach!

So happy to see Hansville in the spotlight! Also, if you are having a “good walking day” be sure to check out Foulweather Bluff Nature Preserve. Located on Twin Spits Rd. (about 3 miles past the Hansville Store), this 500 acre plot of land features a bird marsh and one of the most beautiful sandy beaches in the area. The trailhead is marked fairly well. The trail is about a quarter mile long and the ground is precarious in places. The Nature Conservancy keeps the area pristine. I was once a volunteer steward for this project but due to the progression of my MS had to let it go.
