Total Miles - 975
Still on Oregon Coast - heh, heh
One day we are in the last day of 8 months in dry desert, the next day we are on the beach, Well, to be precise, 2 days later, but, when you are on the beach, hey, you lose track so easily. Know what I mean?

Well, er, uh, ok, no excuses, like being a beach bum. Perhaps that is why I haven't written in several days. Sometimes you just need to take a little break which we have here at Nehalem Bay State park on the Oregon Coast.
One thing about the Oregon coast is how favorable the climate is for plants and flowers. We admire some of the local gardens as we walked around town.

Only minutes from the beach I monitored the sunset possibilities, and dashed out to find a good place to watch. Much of this time of the year is clouded in with fog banks so you have to shoot these when you can.

I found a nice little dune which gave off some reflection of suns rays and spent a good 45 minutes watching the sunset and taking photos. I ruined the shots from regular camera but managed to get a couple with the iPhone. Never leave home without it.
Today we drove to Cannon Beach about 20 miles north. We ate some lunch at local places, I had pizza and she had fish & chips.

This few days of R&R have been fun. We spent the mornings walking and also researching and making some reservations for next winters trip to Florida. Have some fun places booked. It gets crowded down there so wanted to make sure we have some places to stay during peak season. Mid December through March 2 is now booked. The rest, we will wing it.
If you have read this far, I will let you in on a big secret......Promise not to tell anyone? We get to spend my 65th birthday next January in......
wait for it.......
|The Florida Keys!! Woo Hoo|
Off to Ananda Laurelwood for a few weeks. So I won't post daily but hope to put up some photos and some fun things.
