For 33 years, Michael Muller, from Edmonds, worked for the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.  So naturally, when he wants to take a weekend away, he heads out to the coast.

Visiting Moclips for the first time, he came to Hi-Tide Resort in October 2023, hoping to avoid the crowds but still have the great weather the coast can provide.

------

Hi-Tide: What brought you out to the coast?
 
Michael: I wanted to visit with friends in the area.  I saw Hi-Tide was there, and I could bring my Husky/Malamute mix, Yuka.  I was debating about going to Lake Cushman or the coast, and I decided I wanted to get Yuka out to the ocean.
 
Hi-Tide: What did you do while you stayed with us?
 
Michael: We did a lot of exploring of the area.  We also enjoyed the solitude and quiet of the beach.  Yuka was a busybody on the dunes.  At night, I loved looking up at the stars and I could see the crabbers with their lights on way out in the water.  The weather was perfect, since it was the tail end of summer and it was still warm.
 
Hi-Tide: Were you upset there was no razor clamming during your visit?
 
Michael: No.  It’s hard to keep track of Yuka and dig for clams at the same time.  I talked to other people at the resort about it and liked that there was a cleaning station right there for people to use.  Not many places have that.  
 
Razor clams are one of my favorites, though.  I stopped at Duffy’s in Aberdeen on my way out to the coast.  They were some of the best razor clams I’ve had.  
 
Hi-Tide: What was the best part about your stay?
 
Michael: On our first day there I discovered that Yuka would not go up the stairs.  I had to carry her the few tries we went up those stairs. I called the front desk and Jerry there was able to get us moved to a ground floor unit within an hour of my phone call.  
 
Hi-Tide: Would you come back to Hi-Tide?
 
Michael: Absolutely!  I’d like to come back at about the same time of year later this year.  I’d like to take my daughter and granddaughter, and Yuka’s littermate Kavic.

We stay there every Sept for 3-4 days. Been going there for the past 4 years. We like to hike along the river and the beach. Out of the way and every thing you need. Oceancrest resturant is in Moclips and the food is excellent. Not much more you could ask for. Manager is great.
