  • Chillin' on the Beach - Saltwater and Dash Point

    One of the great things about our State Park focus is discovering new places. I’d never been to Dash Point State Park although it’s nearby in King County. It’s actually quite delightful - a wooded park along the banks of the south sound, just north of Commencement Bay. Of course it would have been more delightful if it was sunny and 70 degrees, but six determined members of PAWA each managed to get at least one painting completed before leaving mid-day on Saturday. It sounds like the weather was not much better on Friday at Saltwater State Park.

    Dash Point offers several nice picnic areas and viewpoints. A tree-shaded creek gurgles its way to the beach. The broad sandy beach would have been inviting if not for the wind and scattered raindrops. I thought the creek made an interesting subject so I set up on the sand. (painting photo coming soon). Despite layers of clothing it was not getting warmer as the day progressed. We’ll keep hoping for better weather.
