Beautiful flowers flourish in the daily mist that the sea provides and the temperate climate soothes and ensures a steady growth.
What a great place to bring your chair and curl up with a good book.
The Pacific Ocean on a peaceful summer's day. Can't you just hear the gulls and the crashing of the waves against those rocks?
The Yaquina Bay Lighthouse perched on a jetty of rock overlooking the crashing ocean just below. Completely restored, you can climb the spiral staircase inside and have a look from the very top. It's a lovely view.
The tidepools below harbor a world teaming with life. The day was cool with a stiff breeze coming in from the ocean and the fog never quite receded.
The rock that juts out from the shore is a favorite perch for the marine birds as is evidenced from the mass quanitities of their droppings. See all that white stuff on the top of the big rock? That's not frosting or seafoam...
Have you ever imagined what it would be like to soar through the air like the birds? Oh, the sheer joy and the freedom they must feel would be amazing! Just catch a little current of air and soar above everything!
The beach has always been a place of peace and relaxation for me. A great place to visit and just let your senses go and let your imagination run wild. Feel the spray of the ocean on your face and breath deep...glorious!
And the sensation of the cool water swirling around your feet and the sand disappearing beneath your toes. Heaven!
And just before you head back inside to warm up with your favorite hot mug; one last look over your shoulder at the sun sinking low on the horizon...a smile passes your lips at the farewell of another perfect day...
at the beach.
