Rialto Beach and Hole-in-the-Wall — Saturday, Mar. 18, 2023

Olympic Peninsula

What can be better than a spring-like sunny Saturday at the ocean shores!

Parking lot was quite busy at 3 pm, but plenty of space was available to the south of main parking lot. Restrooms were open and stocked.

Tidal pools had less starfish than I experienced before, but plenty of anemones and crabs as usual. All in all great 4 mi RT trek past Hole-in-the-Wall, taking 2.5 hrs - with lots of time to explore tidal pools.

Unexpected cancelled and significantly delayed ferry sailings unfortunately ruined much of the day’s joy. Plan ahead and probably expect later sailings experience issues.
