Cape Flattery & Neah Bay

Happy Thursday, everyone!

I have a some Washington State photos to share, these are from our visit to Neah Bay and Cape Flattery. Cape Flattery is the most northwestern spot you can visit in the United States and it is part of the Makah Reservation.


You will need to buy a special permit from the Makah  to hike on the trail to see the Cape Flattery Lighthouse.



A view of the Cape Flattery trail.


The beautiful Pacific Ocean, seen from one of the Cape Flattery overlooks.


A look toward toward the Makah Bay and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.


Some of the birds seen Western Grebes, various Gulls, Harlequin Ducks, Rhinoceros Auklets, Red-necked Grebe, Red-throated Loon, Cormorants and a Bald Eagle with a fish.



While we were in the area we ate lunch at a restaurant called the Warmhouse in Neah Bay. We had eaten here before back in 2015, they have great milkshakes.  We also enjoyed watching the Bald Eagles right outside the restaurant windows. On this day there had to be 20-30 bald Eagles both adults and juvies. They put on a show for us while ate our lunch.


Neah Bay Bald Eagles. I think one Juvenile Eagle had a fish which attracted all the other eagles. The juvie eagle  held tight onto his fish and was not going to share.




Back at our Ocean Resort and First Beach for the sunset.



"May every sunrise hold more promise and every sunset hold more peace."



My thankful list for today:
I am thankful for good health to hike on trail like the Cape Flattery Trail.
I am thankful for blue skies and lovely weather.


I hope you enjoyed my post and photos.  Thanks so much for visiting and for your nice comments. Have a happy day!

Thank you Michelle for hosting. Thankful Thursday



Thank you to the hosts of   Skywatch Friday

  18. Looks like a wonderful place to visit, Eileen. Bald Eagles are not uncommon here, but we never see the kind of concentration you show in your pictures. Regardless of how often one sees this species it remain spectacular and to see so many at one time is very special.

  52. Great idea, Thankful Thursday. Beautiful pictures too, specially the last two. Thank you for sharing.

  53. Incredibly beautiful photos, Eileen! Just breath-taking! How cool to watch the Bald Eagles while eating lunch too. Lovely post. What a great trip this must have been!

    I had to comment on something you said on my post...Mt Washington, which is the second highest mountain in Oregon (Mt. Hood being the tallest) is also a volcano, and they haven't studied it much and don't know when it's due to erupt. I can see the very tip top of it from my front porch! Most of the Cascade Range are volcanoes. It doesn't leave one with much confidence! :-) And going down into Deschutes Canyon would be a big mistake...heading east would be our only hope! :-)

  54. Sounds like my kind of place but I bet up there the ocean is too cold to swim or wade in? So many birds and eagles right outside the restaurant, wow. I adore the shot looking toward Makah Bay and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
