Last week I got to enjoy one of my all time favorite things - go to the Oregon coast! I just LOVE the coast.. the smell, the mist, the fog, the sounds of the surf rolling in... there is just something about being there.. it is so calming, so relaxing.. so serene.
I had a week to myself and I thoroughly enjoyed doing whatever I wanted to, whenever I wanted to.. or nothing at all.
You are the only one....
Who gets to....
Set the rules of your life.
|First trip from the house to see the waves.... the house where I stayed was a few miles from the actual water. Can you believe it??? dirty surf!|
|More dirty surf - but oh so outrageously wild and beautiful!|
|Trip up the coast to see the Heceta Lighthouse - it was a bright and sunny day.|
|Beautiful cliffs of rocks and moss. Highway 101 is unbelievably picturesque.|
Now look at the next pictures. What do you see? are those rocks? what are those things in the water? I could hear it but couldn't see it at first.
Closer look - can you see them? hundreds of them!
Cavorting in the water and barking.............
Yup you guessed it............... SEALS! Unbeknownst to me, I was just a mile south of the Sea Lion Caves! Wow is all I could say. What a surprise!
|It was such a breath of fresh air to see some flowers starting to bloom. Where I live, there is NOTHING blooming or even beginning to peek up from the ground yet.|
|An old fashioned drinking fountain. You don't see those very often anymore. There's even a spigot for Fido! Growing up in Portland, Oregon, these were on many of the street corners in downtown.|
|Colorful flags and geraniums!|
