The text and paintings on The Trowbridge Chronicles are taken from the illustrated journal of Violet Trowbridge, a shrew that once lived in a village deep in the Olympic Rain Forest. Each new post will represent a portion of Mrs. Trowbridge’s journal.

If you continue hiking Shi Shi Beach southward and pass beyond the Point of Arches, you will enter a new mystical almost unearthly realm. The above picture is of the first cove below Shi Shi Beach. As we plodded through the deep sand and navigated the ancient craggy black boulders, we could easily envision an unknown species of prehistoric monster suddenly appearing from behind a nearby sea stack.

We hiked at a greatly stepped up pace into the second cove beyond Point of Arches because we were feeling tension about the tide coming in and trapping us against a sea cliff. Fortunately, we found our way back to Shi Shi just as the  waves were beginning to break onto the rocks on the upper beach. If you are fortunate enough to be able to visit Shi Shi Beach, make time to explore the ancient sea coves below Point of Arches.

Today, I went to the beach with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
