Southern Oregon Coast

Southern Oregon Coast

I walked the beach alone,
in the presence of some deeper soul

  1. Wow! Absolutely gorgeous. I would love to walk alone there. That is Nature Speaks.

    • Thank you, Anna! I had the privilege of living on the Oregon Coast for over 4 years and am missing it since I moved inland to Corvallis, Oregon. On a clear day, the ocean is so serene and expansive, the sand so sparkly and the sun a drifting spectacle afloat as a burning buoy in the sky. There is so much more depth to Nature here – our souls but singular drops in the scheme of all things. Hope you have an excellent day 🙂

    • Thank you! I miss the beautiful sunrises and sunsets on the Oregon Coast. The way the tide sweeps in and out on the shore, depositing sand dollars, kelp, driftwood and shell. The stiff salty drafts of air that weave through my hair, awakening my sense of place. So many sensations are conjured when I look at these photographs. I thought I would share them with you. Glad you enjoyed the view!

    It looks so perfect…as if time itself stood still!!

    • Thank you! When you are near the ocean, time passes slowly, in and out, every six hours with the tide. These tranquil moments give you pause and heighten your awareness. Glad you enjoyed the view! Hope you have an excellent weekend 🙂

    This amazing beauty is why people put up with the rain! The Coos Bay Area of the Oregon Coast is so beautiful and ever changing when the tides come in and out. I have a lot of family that live in and around Coos Bay, so I have visited there many times. The coastal drive from California to Oregon up the 101 is so beautiful. I have yet to drive the coast all the way up through Oregon though. I had planned to do it last July on my way up to Seattle to take a cruise, but we had to fly at the last moment.

    • Exactly! We put up with the long bouts of rain and fog for these serene clear days that lie polished in the wake of several winter storms. The drive along the coast is amazing! I just moved inland to Corvallis, but will be traveling back to the coast over the summer to escape the heat. Instinctively, I still check my phone to see what the tides are doing. My friend from work said to me, “Don’t forget, this place is like a fungus, it grows on you and you will be back!” While I know mold is a common household amenity on the Coast, my memories are more like sand stuck between my toes. The beautiful grit never loses its glimmer.
