T'was he Night Before 4th of July

It is late night July 3rd and all through the area, not a creature is stirring. Every pillow at Hi-Tide Resort has a head on it.
Children do not have visions of sugar plums dancing in their heads. They are dreaming of the shells they collected, the waves they jumped and the games they played today.
At dinner, every picnic table was filled with families devouring hamburgers and hot dogs hot from the barbecue, dollops of potato salad, and later followed by ‘s'mores stuffed with chocolate and mashed melted marsh mellows.
For moms and dads, grandparents and friends, beer was preferred. For some, it was fine wine. Cocktails for others. Children gulped fresh-squeezed lemonade as their libation of choice.
Kids and adults alike stayed up late ‘round the campfire spinning yarns and trying jokes. Campfire songs were sung, although no one knew all the words laughter erupted for no good reason. Smiles were everywhere.
Now it is late and every person here is dreaming of another dreamy day on Moclips Beach, or wading through the Moclips River, or playing horseshoes or just strolling through the dunes.
We can’t claim that jolly old Saint Nicholas will soon be here, but maybe Robert Gray, the namesake for our area, will appear for just a moment to proclaim "And to all a good night."

104 Degrees at Moclips Beach

Summer weather on the North Beaches of Washington State is always great, but the TV news tonight says it will be 104 degrees tomorrow Sunday. Yikes.
A little more sleuthing shows they mean 105 in Aberdeen, which is just 25 miles away and about 10 miles from the ocean. So we will probably see a nice tidy 84 degrees at Hi-Tide Resort on Moclips Beach.
Even if that is a bit too toasty for you, never fear, the cool crisp Pacific Ocean is just a hop, skip, and a jump away. Or cool off where the Moclips river merges with the ocean just feet from our north building. You can't get any closer to nature than right here.
With luck, we'll have a little onshore breeze and the most stunning sunset ever. With luck, we'll even glimpse that last-minute green flash when the blazing sun slips right into the seas.
We wish you were here. But better yet, come soon.
P.S. It is midnight as I write and still 81 degrees. Lovely.
