FALL AT THE OCEAN

Home » BLOG » shaula's news » FALL AT THE OCEAN
| Late November, 2014 |
I spent this fall on the Oregon Coast, an adventure that is rapidly receding in the rear view mirror at this point, but I wanted to share a few images before they get shelved.

This is looking down on the ocean town of Manzanita, a sweet, small town, rather like Twisp in the Methow Valley where I am from. I rented a place two blocks from the beach, and most days walked the beaches a couple of times a day with the poohound.IMG_3877

A dewy, early fall morning after the rain.IMG_3832IMG_3872

Manzanita is a very dog friendly place, the beaches welcome freely romping, well behaved dogs.IMG_4478

My penchant for smooth beach stones was well sated.IMG_3893

…and hand made stone buttons abound from the loot. (Check out the previous blog if you want more info. on buttons: http://manitoubeads.com/button/)IMG_4363

I’m not exactly sure what these are, but they washed up on the beach by the thousands in September.IMG_3781IMG_3804

…as did the dead seabirds in frightening numbers, once the winter storms began in October .IMG_4414IMG_4415

The aforementioned wilder sea and skies of winter.IMG_4330IMG_4343IMG_4342IMG_4466

 More mysterious beach detritus. The inner inhabitant had evacuated by the time this house floated to shore, but the remaining crystal-like, spongy husk was most intriguing.IMG_0198

Monster kelp piles also rolled in with the turbulant wind and waves.IMG_4425

 I felt blessed by my time at the ocean, and the gift of this farewell sunset.IMG_0107
