The Oregon Coast

When I was a child, my family vacationed in Oregon for a couple weeks most summers.

One of my dad’s best friends had moved to Oregon after college.

He owned a lot of acreage with rivers, and streams, and forests, and animals.

We’d go visit and camp out on his land.

It was kid heaven.

(Apparently it was also adult heaven.  My parents decided to retire there.)

Many of those trips also involved a few days of play on the Oregon coast.

It was often cold and foggy, but that didn’t stop the beaches from being magical.

I was fortunate to re-visit a lot of the Oregon coast while on my recent road trip.

I was extra-fortunate to be there when it wasn’t cold and/or foggy … definitely a rarity.

I thought I’d share a few of the photos I took as I traveled up and down the coast.

I really like this long exposure shot because you can get a concept of how huge the rocks are, by noting how small the man standing on them appears.

The Oregon coast changes in appearance, of course, at different locations.

Still, I found it beautiful everywhere I went.

I took this next photo of a beach path in a small coastal town named Yachats.  (Pronounced yah-hots.)

Nearby, Cape Perpetua was amazing.

I spent a few hours hiking while I was there.

(Did you know hiking with a  shitload  lot of gear on your back gets very tiring?)

I could have stayed at Cape Perpetua for weeks hiking and photographing different areas.

It’s such a beautiful location.

I’m sure I’ll have more posts about my visit to Oregon in the future.

But, hopefully you got a nice overview of the coast from today’s photos.

      It is.
      It’s so calm compared to Southern California!

    Hi Suzanne,

    Wow! Those photos are great! If you are ever back on the Oregon Coast, I would love to talk to you about taking some shots of the Lincoln City area. You can reach me by phone or email.
