The Salish House
Gig Harbor, Washington
(low tide)

This is where we stayed this past week. We were on an inlet that connected to a bay. The tide came in and out twice a day. At high tide, the water level almost touched the bottom of our deck. At low tide, you could walk out onto the mudflats and go exploring.

Standing in the Kitchen - One whole side of the house was all windows looking out into the inlet. The other side of the house backed up to a forest.

Brooklyn and August's Play Area - the windows and sliding door opened onto a balcony the entire length of the house. It was beautiful!

Hard to see, but those ripples in the water are actually seals!

Rising Tide behind our house - at high tide, all that mud was underwater.

View of inlet from our back deck. See why it was hard to leave?
