Sometimes simple is best. At least that’s what I think the namers of Washington’s First Beach were thinking when they came up with that moniker.
There’s also Second Beach. I imagine them being so proud of themselves, sitting around the table, thinking of what to call these gorgeous places on the west coast of the state, and after they named the – wait for it – first one, they thought, hey! We’ve got a good thing going! And Second Beach it was.
But there’s also Third Beach. Now I’m starting to doubt their belief in simplicity, and think maybe there was a big game on TV. “Okay, we’ve got First and Second, so let’s see,” (checks watch), “how about Third Beach? That’s catchy, don’t you think?” (Grunts of agreement, then chairs scraping as everyone gets up and races out the door to catch the kickoff.)
Or it could be that since all these wonderful beaches exist in a place called La Push, Washington, maybe they just figured they couldn’t compete name-wise with something that sounds like a disco move.
Regardless, First Beach is well worth a visit.
