Sea Coast of Oregon


Ok, I have a new like it is SOURDOUGH bread, no matter what you put on, it is so good tasting. However I've found a decetant cheese by black diamond and with the sourdough toasted to excess but not setting off the smoke detector it is amazing. Enough of food, all that weight I lost has found some of its way back after sitting in the co-pilot seat for what? 9 weeks last Saturday we have been on the road.

We got an early start today and hugged the coast of Oregon.


The ocean was amazing

We found many spots to walk down with interesting names like, Seven Devils, Devil's Punchbowl and Pistol Point.

However it was a wave crashing day



The beaches were sand covered without pebbles and that doesn't make for good beachcombing, we were skunked but not for the lack of trying.

With the memories of a few days ago still lingering we still felt rich



Then one of the pullovers (sounds like a sweather) maybe they are called pull offs, anyway I happened to spot these board surfers waiting on that perfect wave.


The landscape was incredible

The Devil's Punchbowl

Imagine this if you can it is the size of an 8 story building with a tunnel in one side and out the other side. I didn't happen to catch the picture of the wave rushing in the tunnel but I think you can imagine it.


The ride around the coast was wavy just as the sea and all of a sudden you come to something like this in the middle of the road way, if you look to the left you can see a bit of road veering off, that is where we went. Sometimes the guard rails had no pavement under a few posts and the drop was 60 some feet. You can tell the shore line has a lot of erosion from storm happening.

I found a glass blowing shop to stop at today and watch for a few balls, I've always been interested in that, but no. Then off to two bead shops and some wonderful finds


According to the lovely lady in the shop she told us we were going to find some amazing bead shops along the way,

Ohhh, I can hardly wait.

I'd better start to use these up or I may not be getting others. I love beads, these daggers are for my lady dragon fly earrings and zipper pulls.

Well I should go, seeing I have a little bit of internet and check out a few of you lovelies and find the next beading shop, tootles.
