Olympic Coast Trip - Exploring

We woke the next morning and continued hiking northward, further exploring the coast. We hiked for a mile or two in the coastal wilderness. Some areas were impossible to hike around due to the tide. I spent a considerable amount of time trying to figure a way around a cliff by making timed steps amongst slippery stones as the waves pulled back. I eventually gave up and then noticed a trail up and around the cliff. On the other side I found a rope to climb down which revealed more unihabited beach. We had to return at this point so we could pack up camp and head back before the tide could come in and cut off our way out.
