Cape Disappointment

Liddy posing in front of Cape Disappointment Lighthouse.

Towards the end of February, I was getting a bit of cabin fever. I needed to get away. Get out. Go shoot something.

I studied the weather and it looked like there might be some dramatic weather down towards the mouth of the Columbia River. We had been to the South Jetty before, so perhaps this time we would visit the North Jetty.

The North Jetty is located in Cape Disappointment State Park. The Jetty was closed for maintenance on this occasion, so we didn’t attempt to hike out along it.

We did, however, take a moment to capture Liddy posing on a log above Waikiki Beach with the Cape Disappointment Light in the background. As you can see, the weather wasn’t very dramatic. When the tide and winds are right, the waves roll in against the cliffs forming huge splashes that can reach high into the sky.

Liddy would not be sitting still, posing on a log like this, on one of those days I can assure you.
