Beach Things (and Stuff)

This past weekend, we visited several of the beautiful beaches around Olympic National Park including...


Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge


Second Beach


and Ruby Beach.

While wandering these beaches, we found things (and stuff) that we could not identify. And so we call upon you, dear reader, to help us!

Take a look below and ponder what we found. Then, leave a comment here on the blog if you think you know what you see. Even if you don't know, we'll give points* to the best guesses.

Exhibit A


Ok. That one was just a warm up.

Exhibit B


To what type of creature did this vertebra belong? Van keys included for scale. Redaction included to prevent a Diebold incident.

Exhibit C


These stone-like forms were all over the beach. At first, we thought we were handling petrified wood, but then the shapes were too varied for that. The exterior has a hardened clay-like texture, but these things were almost as dense as stones.

Exhibit D


My guess is cow. Your guess?

Exhibit E


Some of these 2-4 inch tall sand hills had the squirts on top while others just had a hole. What lives inside?

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Our latest DIY adventure... Homebrew!

After participating in a few different brewery tours around town, the Curious Souls wondered "how difficult can this brewing thing really be?" Today, with a few beers (for inspiration), a few friends, and an extract kit , we decided to try it out for ourselves. Enter (stage left) End of the World Brewing... ( Vid link for the iPhone impaired ) Easy, right? Just like making stew... or tea... or stewing tea... or something... And now, we wait (quite impatiently) for the little S. cervisiae to do their job.
