The Nutting's had invited me over for dinner, but the weather had turned sunny and warm, so they decided to make dinner a picnic out at Halibut Point Recreation Area. Last year at about this time we had a picnic up on top of Harbor Mountain, but you cannot even drive up to the top because of snow this year.

While we were out there I decided to wander over to a little (10-15 feet high) beach side cliff. The tide was high enough that the water was lapping at the base, and I decided to climb around along it for fun. There were a number of yellow flowers (I believe they are villous cinquefoils) growing on the cliff.
