Back to the Beach

Miss Freckles and I took a nice long walk on our favorite beach today... the weather was warm and a little windy, but no rain. It is so nice to have our 'private' beach back, where I can just let her run off-leash because there is no one else around. A nice long trip to this beach really rejuvenates my soul, and gives us both some much-needed fresh air and exercise. There was a lot of washed-up mussel shells and kelp today. I think it's beautiful. This mussel shell was about 6 inches long.
Lots of interesting colors and textures to be found.
Miss Freckles the mountain goat - she really loves it at the beach.
We saw lots of seagulls, pelicans and some chirping oyster catchers.
More pretty flotsam...
Last week the weather was perfect for a road trip down south, with some trekking thru the woods to find a bagfull of chanterelle mushrooms. The scenery is just stunning.
A short stop to check out the fly-eating plants at Darlingtonia Botanical Wayside... very interesting plants, and there were hundreds of them.
Another short stop at beautiful Cape Creek. Very tranquil and serene.
And along the way, another stop to watch this elk herd graze. Beautiful!!
I sure do love living here on the beautiful Oregon coast. :) No shortage of photo ops here!
