Gleneden Beach, Oregon

How about these rocks with trees growing on them? I found them quite impressive on our drive along the Oregon Coast to our 1st night destination just south of Lincoln City, Oregon. Once we found Salashan Spa we decided to take a walk to Gleneden Beach along a nature trail beside the golf course.

Standing at the beginning of the trail we could hear crashing waves in the distance.

The walk was about a mile to the shore.

It would be great to have some audio so you could hear just how loud these crashing waves were. It was very nice to be along the Pacific again. It’s been since February 2010 that Dear and I have walked along the Pacific ocean. At the beginning of March 2010 we moved from Camarillo, California back to our home in Washington. Our home in Camarillo was about 8 miles from the Pacific. As nice as it was to have our weekly beach walks we are very happy and content to be back in our home in Washington State that is a lot farther from the Pacific Ocean…

Hope your September is starting well. I’m really looking forward to be back to Women’s Bible Study starting up next Tuesday.

 

Something New…

…around every corner. Yard Art is just a walk away.

 

The large fountain with a couple frogs perched and ready.

 

 

The wonderful color from these flowers almost made me miss the yard art in these planters.

 

But this next yard was overtaken with their art. :0)

 

These were all from my walk on Tuesday morning. Wednesday morning I walked around some different corners and I’ll share the art I found in future weeks. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to participate the next two weeks as I’ll be getting some out of state company soon.

Please visit Mary at Work of the Poet to see more Yard Art on Thursday.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

It Was a Great Day…

…for a walk in the neighborhood.

 

The hydrangeas are really blooming dramatically right now. This one is such an intense blue.

 

Beautiful lilies blooming.

 

A lighter blue hydrangea. I really enjoyed how the sun was shining on these blooms.

The next photos are from my own yard when I returned from my walk.

 

My blueberries are getting ready and I have to be fast to beat the birds to the ripe ones!

 

Our pears are getting bigger. They usually aren’t ready until late August or early September.

 

I didn’t plant this Foxglove but it’s blooming in my yard. Such a pretty flower.

It’s wonderful when the weather encourages us to get out and about and enjoy the scenery. I really need the extra exercise and I’m thankful for the motivation I get from the good weather we are having in the Northwest right now. Tomorrow I’ll share the great Yard Art I encountered on my latest walk!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I appreciate it.

Oops forgot to link up to Susan at The Southern DayDreamer for Outdoor Wednesday!
