Thanks WAMTB, we actually planned on riding Orcas last weekend. But the weather didnt look good so we headed to Hood River, OR instead.
Still wanting to get to Orcas for some riding. Ill have to check ut Ebey, never heard of it for riding bikes.

To many, the attraction of the coast in late November would be storm watching. Having said that, south of Kalaloch, all the way to the Columbia, is all sandy beach. North of Kalaloch, you'll encounter more rocky headlands, better for witnessing the pounding surf (perhaps not as great for the pooches, if they're water dogs).

Also check out this thread; member BogusBlake went to Cape Disappointment in more inclement weather.


PS - A favourite quote of mine seems appropriate:
Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather -John Ruskin

I second that. Hobuck is our favorite. We have been there on Thanksgiving and New Years. Camp spots are right on the beach (literally just a few steps away) We have been there many times in the winter when there is NO one else there. We prefer to be there when there are big storms at sea. At night, the ground shakes when the big breakers hit the beach. We met a real white wolf while camped there, and she was our best buddy for the weekend, waiting outside our door in the am to go for a walk, chase sticks, and just hang with humans around the camp fire. We came back a couple weeks later and she found us again, great fun. It's a great drive to get there too. Highly recomended.............
