To celebrate our first Valentine's Day as husband and wife, my love and I took a four day trip to Long Beach, Washington. One of those days was spent hiking around some of the beautiful parks and lighthouses. Upon arriving at the North Head Lighthouse, we saw the bright orange of a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter. It was far off, but we soon realized that it was headed right towards us...
To our surprise, a gentleman nearby signaled the aircraft to aproach! We were able to observe as they rescued a practice dummy from the waters below.
I kid you not, we literally happened upon this. It was such an impressive and exciting sight to see. I thank every member of the U.S. Coast Guard for their hard work in keeping people safe.
This was truely, an honor to witness.
We took a look at the lighthouse and explored the surrounding area in peace, thankful for our surprisingly eventful morning.
