SkyWatch Friday: sky over Oregon

It was my birthday last week. The day I officially became a Senior Citizen found me waking up in Albany, Oregon, after arriving on an Amtrak train the previous evening, then traveling from Albany to the wild and wonderful Oregon coast with my good friend Maryann. We took the scenic route: through the rainforest with a stop at quaint little Alsea and then to her beautiful view home in Waldport, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It was a lovely day, and a great visit! Thanks, Maryann!

While Maryann popped into the Waldport Library,
I took out my camera, above and below.

It looks like a quaint little town but not a thriving one. It does have beautiful sunsets.

Happy Birthday to you, Ma'am! Late birthday greetings though but welcome to the club! We 'golden gals and guys' have a lot going, believe me! One is travels for which you are privileged to have done many times enriching us all with warm pics. The other the leisurely pace (oops!) of blogging.

And not forgetting the dainty little ones (read: grand children) we dote fondly for every time they are around the house! Great!

What a cute little town. Love your collection of photos. They remind me of some of the little towns here in VA where the past meets the present. Lovely skies - wonderful shots. genie

Very happy belated birthday, Kay! I might have wished it to you person but somehow did not remember to do so. I can’t think of a nicer place than this charming town in Oregon, though, from where to reach that magic number. :)
