We stopped in La Push between visiting two beaches that are part of Olympic National Park, Second Beach and Rialto Beach. It was a windy and rainy day, so we didn’t see much other than First Beach, which is located right along the town. James Island is just offshore.

River’s Edge Restaurant

The main reason for our visit was to grab breakfast at River’s Edge Restaurant. This cozy place located at the mouth of the Quillayute River has great food and friendly service.

I had eggs and French toast while Marisol had a skillet. We were both very happy with our meals, and the price was reasonable.

We also stopped at the Lonesome Creek Store to stock up on snacks for our hikes. It’s located right before the entrance to the small town.
