Bell's View in the Cape Disappointment State Park, is one of the prettiest lookouts in the State of Washington! From this vantage point you can see the glorious view of the 28 mile-long Long Beach Peninsula (and on a clear day, the Olympic Mountain Range can be seen in the distance, north of the peninsula.) Obviously Red being the big lighthouse fan that it is wanted to check out the nearby North Head Lighthouse and Cape Disappointment lighthouses too. This immense park is one of five state parks on the Long Beach, Washington Peninsula. Cape D is the location of Maya Lin's Confluence Project that honors the local Chinook Indian Tribe encountered by Lewis and Clark Corps of Discovery when they arrived at the Pacific Ocean. It was exciting for Red to learn that Clark and the Corps walked on what is now the Boreas Bed and Breakfast Inn property on November 19th, 1805! One last little tip, make sure you check out the innkeeper's favorite spot, Waikiki Beach at Cape Disappointment State Park, Ilwaco, WA, you won’t regret it!
