Our work - protecting Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary for future generations - means that
on some days, "the office," is being on a boat to watch the sun rise over Cape Flattery, or a
secluded wilderness beach monitoring intertidal life. We feel fortunate to live and work in one
of the most beautiful places anywhere. So, we’re happy to recommend some of what we think are the
best places on the Olympic Peninsula and the Olympic Coast.
