A Beach House Treasure
During my most recent shoot for Washington Coast Magazine I had the pleasure of meeting Charlie and Billie Hay and got a fun tour of their home. They fell in love with their Tokeland beach home when they purchased it ten years ago. You could hear the love in their voices as they pointed out details and shared stories...so many things to photograph. You'll have to pick up your very own copy of the Fall issue to soak in the whole story but, as always, I had to share the photos. Bob McCausland, "a legendary cartoonist for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer and, in retirement, for The Daily World in Aberdeen," and his wife Ruth built and lived in the home for many years. You can find Bob's cartoons and carvings throughout the home as well as other locations on the property.
Take a look at the photos below for your own tour of the home. :) Scroll past the magazine spread to get a closer look at the images.

As a photographer, it's always fun to see your work published for all to see. I like to photograph the spreads and share the photo story the magazine creates to compliment their articles.
Below you'll find a closer look at the images in this story.
Above: A wall made of buoys the Hays found on the beach.
Above: Details are found everywhere around the home.
Above: There is something to catch your interest in every nook of the yard. Above: The fireplace and shelves surrounding it are all hand-carved works from Bob McCausland.
Above: Billie's favorite piece in the house...a message-in-a-bottle she found at Myrtle Beach in South Carolina.
Above: This was my favorite piece in the house. This little guy had so much character! Also, notice the very cool stair risers in the background. Bob carved openings into the risers so that the light from the storage space underneath the stairway could shine through.
Below: Here are some close up looks at some of the cartoons that adorn the wall in the master bedroom. Below: Charlie and Billie Hay enjoying the view from their deck over a glass of wine.
Well done Julie, as always.
