We live in Lake Stevens WA. We want to go to the beach in early August this year. We don't want to drive forever but want a real sandy beach. We have heard of Westport and Ocean Shores...just not too sure how easy it is to get to these beaches. We did not want to spend most of our time on ferries... Is there a beach you would recommend? Possibly a wonderful beach and easy to get to. A place we can spend our 38th anniversary? We will only have a weekend...will want to leave early Sat morning and return on Sunday eve. Thanks and cant wait to hear what you recommend.
