Road Tripping – Days 9 & 10

There’s so much to update you on,

And so little time (since I’m still on the road).

I left my parent’s house and drove to the Oregon coast to shoot for a few days.

I’ve been getting some great photos.

The Oregon coastline is beautiful and very dramatic.

Of course, I’ve had almost no time to upload and/or edit photos.

I can’t wait to tell you all the great stories from this trip, but I want to do so WITH the correlating photos.

Here’s a shot of me (my ass?) my son took yesterday.

My son has been shooting my Sony RX 100 III on this trip.

And, in case you think road tripping is all fun and laughs ….

Here’s a photo I took out of a hotel room I had in Eureka, CA one night:

There were flies in my hotel room when I arrived.

There was a man outside my window discussing his parole officer.

I’m sure there are very nice areas in Eureka, but I wasn’t in them.

Road tripping – it’s an adventure!

    You weren’t kidding when you described sketchy hotels, um flop houses?

      Ha ha!
      Some of them have been okay, but definitely not all of them.
      It’s budget traveling … it adds up when it’s a long trip like this one.

        To answer your qsitueon to Jenny P., in my opinion there is a lot of natural shade in Austin. Our trees are not as tall or broad as those in your region, but there are lots of them, especially live oaks. Shade is a necessity for enjoying the garden in summer in our region, whether from trees or man-made structures (interesting that no one wrote about that, eh?).

    Try staying in Arcata on your way home… After living in the area for about a year I’ve found there aren’t many nice places in Eureka (there is Sequoia Park which has a very nice garden area and a quaint little Zoo). Arcata is very “colorful” in town and the Arcata Marsh is a great place to shoot (photo) birds! Plus lots of budget hotels along the highway! Happy travels!

      You’re the second person to mention Arcata.
      I will definitely make a note of it!

      Susan, I agree, shady spots are much more interesting than sunny ones. As a kid, I grew up aosrcs the street from a area where all the vegetation had been removed to make room for the town basketball courts, baseball fields, pool, playground and golfcourse. But, next door to our property was a wooded, undeveloped area that held much more fascination for me and my friends than the typical’ play areas. We’d spend hours climbing trees and digging for buried treasures. For me, shade gardens are so interesting because they seem much more natural and less contrived than many of their sunny counterparts.The biggest adventures I had as a kid were in those woods behind our house. I didn’t value that experience then as much as I do now though. s

      Douglas, I liked your comments about lnivog enclosure , comfort and trust I think that a sense of safety and trust are important intangibles in a contemplative space. I also think that creating these types of spaces is highly personal and requires a higher degree of commitment and involvement on the part of the owner than average.

    I’ve thought about the Oregon coast and its beauty, would love to visit and fill my files with photos someday. Looking forward to seeing yours.
