During Lindsay’s visit we were able to drive over and spend a day on the Oregon coast. As it was LAbor Day weekend, sunny, and clear, it seemed that about 3/4 of the rest of the population of Oregon had the same idea – it was pretty crowded – but beautiful, none-the-less. Here are some of the pictures I took that day.
First stop was Ecola State Park, about 95 miles west of Portland. Here’s a series of 4 pictures I took there.
While I was processing the final photo in this series, I noticed people on the sliver of beach in the shot. Double click on the picture, and then hold down the Control key and hit the (shift) + key, and you’ll see ’em, too.
Because the parking lot for that beach was full, we weren’t able to access the water from Ecola, so we headed south and drove to Manhattan Beach, which was more sparsely populated…
Here’s Seth, Crystal and Lindsay…
Lindsay, Crystal, and Callie…
And one of Seth and Crystal:
We came across the leavings of someone’s crab feast on the beach, which was worth a couple of photos…
On the way back up the coast, Seth shared this lovely seascape view that he and Crystal had discovered one weekend while hiking a trail in that area:
Here’s a picture of the two hikers (Crystal and Seth) who led me to the spot.
I would have loved to linger long enough to get some sunset shots, but we were pretty worn out, and headed back toward Portland, stopping for dinner at an old logging camp turned restaurant. The first pictures are of some of the old equipment there.
I call these next two photos

…and Steam Punk #2:
And finally, a self-timer picture of 5 tired but happy campers ready for dinner:
More to come as soon as I get the time to put it together. Honey in the Heart!
