After every storm...



This part of the lake could use a good storm to clear the weeds.
By the end of December, this area will all be cleared.

Hubby and I walked to the beach this morning, the waves beckoning.


























This was the scene this morning, twelve hours after the first big Pacific storm hit land and winds clocked in at 60+ at Cape Blanco.

This morning, the sun was shining, and we combed the beaches as the surf  pounded in the distance, collected agates, small, irridescent stones barely visible among the tiny pebbles, as  dog owners chased their pooches on the sand.

My Hubby found a good place to sit.

Tonight, there is another high wind advisory.  From November to June, we get out and walk whenever we can, whenever the rain is mild and the winds are not ferocious.

By January, cabin fever sets in. Then, we drive down to California to visit our relatives and soak up more sunshine.

What wonderful pictures! It has been so nice and pleasant here in GA - bright, crisp days, cool nights, I haven't even paid attention to the weather in the rest of the country! It looks spectacular on the Oregon coast. I am a bit homesick after seventeen days away from the San Francisco area, though. Look forward to being on CA soil early Thursday AM!

Lots of fun seeing your side of the world. I also clicked on the photos to enjoy them better. Oh, the little bird!

The waves remind me of N.C.'s Outerbanks. We once weathered the tail of a hurricane down there and have for ever been thankfull that it was only the tail.

I always wonder what is over the horizon. I suppose that is universal.

Oh, I would love to comb that beautiful beach after such a storm!

The waves crashing among the rocks is a wonderful photo. I spent so much time on the beach when I was growing up. I miss it sometimes.

You really do have a lovely stretch of beach to enjoy. It must be wonderful to go out after a storm and find little treasures that have washed up into the sand. I love what someone has done with the driftwood.

How wonderful to live by the sea!

Journaling Woman said...

Very beautiful, wish I were there.

Bogey said...

Believe me, I am so not looking forward to the very short days. I turned to look out the office window this afternoon just after
5pm and the sun had already disappeard. You are surrounded by so much beauty and life. It is nice to know you are out enjoying it.

Lori ann said...

Good you could get out after the storm. Take care in those high winds!

ds said...

Loved the greys in the photo of the surf pounding between the rocks. The driftwood looks like skeletal remnants (in a Georgia O'Keefe-ish way). What a fascinating place you live in. Thank you.

Following the sun....that sounds like a good plan, xv.

Granny on the Web said...

Looks like a wonderful place to take a stroll. I love the sea.
Love Granny

Gledwood said...

I want to go to that place with the lake and the reeds and the trees... can you tell me where it is..? Please? I'd be ever so grateful. ;->...

the walking man said...

The mysticism of the sea and surf no matter the wind upon it has always been dear to me.

Becky at Abbey Style said...

Gorgeous shots! Loved your hubby's chair and "room" setting. How lucky you are to be so close to the heart of nature.

I love the winter storms the West Coast is subject to. We are planning on heading to Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island in February. The boyfriend surfs and I watch. It's always spectactular. We are also thinking of Canon Beach. We haven't been in a couple of years and it's time. Your photos inspire longing (in a good way).

Beautiful photos!

I am only hours from you and I am already having cabin fever! The rain pours down outside my window as I write.
