Dungeness Spit Gallery
Strong currents sweep into the Strait of Juan de Fuca from the Pacific, between Vancouver Island and the Olympic Peninsula. Throw in additional northwest winds and waves, and you have the longest sand spit in America. Every year the Dungeness Spit grows by 15 feet. Now over five and a half miles long, the spit not only creates a navigational hazard, but an important inner bay. On the lee side of the narrow spit, seals and shore birds congregate to feed in this rich estuary.
