Our World Tuesday: Oregon with a friend

We were on the shady side of this stream in the middle of the rainforest...

...where the moss grows on all sides of the trees.
These two shots were taken on my birthday, December 1,
and the others a day or so later during my visit with my
longtime friend Maryann at her fabulous ocean-view home.

Waldport, Oregon. That's the shadow of Maryann's
Mini Cooper on the right. I took a shot of the car but
it isn't in focus. Very cute transportation, however!

Low tide at the estuary, taken from Yachats Ocean Road State Park,
with the town of Yachats, Oregon, in the background.
Many trees on the Oregon coast are distorted during their battle with offshore winds.

A little farther along Yachats Ocean Road, a seagull posed for me.

Devil's Churn at low tide. With the combination of
high tide and a storm, the spray can come right up to
the spot where I was standing.

Much of the coast of Oregon consists of sand dunes.
Wise men build their houses farther uphill.

Lovely captures for the day! I do love Oregon, I lived there for 15 years before moving to Seattle! Hope you have a wonderful week, Kay!

So many spectacular scenes, Kay! Love the mossy buildup in the forest and the twisted limbs on the embattled trees. Your shot of Devil's Churn certainly shows you have a good eye for perspective. :)

In 1976, I went up and down the Oregon coast a few times - spectacularly beautiful. I hope to travel along Highway One one more time this lifetime and stop at every wonderful vista.

You captured the area beautifully Kay. That area and the southern end are my favorite parts of the Oregon coast. We lived in the Newport area for awhile and loved it.

Your shot of Yachats, I have stood in that exact same place. It is a gorgeous view.

A beautiful wild coastline. The trees do tell of the strong winds.

These are such gorgeous photos, Kay. Art just passed by and said, "Wow! Great shots! We've never been to Oregon." Hmmm... maybe we should?
