We live here!





Every day, rain or shine, we walk
Around the lake, down to the dock, to the beaches
The Pacific calling with rumbles and splashes. 

First thing in the morning, we look out
and see this.
Then, we  breathe in deeply
and
Thank God
we are alive.

That second picture is breathtaking and the reason I loved visiting Oregon. I wish we'd been blog friends last fall. We drove through your town! I would have loved to stop and say hi, or meet you somewhere for lunch!

The Oregon coast is very beautiful. We never quite made it to your neck of the woods though. The Pacific air is always invigorating :)

Linds said...

So beautiful! One day I want to visit Oregon. It is on the list. Walking beside the sea is one of life's great pleasures, isn't it - watching waves break, and listening to the rhythm of the ocean. Sea and mountains.... my favourite places!

Sophia said...

OMG - I TOTALLY want to jump in that second photo and stay there a few days...or weeks...or years!!! hahahaha. Seriously! :)

Thank you for your continued support and love! It means alot.

Hugs!

Eleonora said...

The second photo, that's simply awesome - I'm guessing the tide is out? What a way to start the morning!
I thank God for such places too.

Cloudia said...

This land locked midwestern magpie is envious of your seaside walks!

Fire Byrd said...

What a blessing to make that walk every day. To watch the changing sea and weather. To be part of the changing seasons so close to the water.... sigh!

It is so very important that you enjoy where you live. Great views and fresh air compensate for any aging we may face.

And what a gorgeous place to live! I love the rock formations on the west coast. You are so lucky to be able to walk to the sea from my house – it’s a bike ride away for us so I can’t complain.

Sarah Laurence said...

Funny typo -I meant "your" house. I must wish it were mine!

Natalie said...

I love the rocks too. I could never,ever get sick of the Pacific Ocean. A little slice of heaven in your own backyard. :D

Hi Rosaria

Your stretch of the Pacific coastline has great charm. Walking is a great time to let go of the old and remind ourselves of the beauty that surrounds us. I like to think of my walks as a meditation in the now....and I like to use that time to feel gratitude.

Happy days

You are in a beautiful area, that's for sure.

Beam me up - Scotty.

becky at abbeystyle said...

Lovely way to start the day. It seems that your beaches are black...as in Hawaii...? Surely, not volcanic ash...isn't every day a wonder?

the walking man said...

No waves calling and no sights left to see but then everyday I still have the same gratitude.

NitWit1 said...

Beauty and great shots.

I try to show where we are I love and privileged to be here in this moment in time.

Poet I am not, but love reading it.

Polly said...

This is an absolutely perfect place to live...

The second snap is the show stopper ;) wherever we live we all thank God for one more day!

cheshire wife said...

You live in a wonderful place. The sky is blue and there is no snow or ice!

Dimple said...

The smell of morning along the Pacific is something I remember well. Tangy, green, and salty all at once. Thanks for the memory!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Stunning. I would never leave!

Rob-bear said...

What a beautiful view that greets you daily! Sometimes clear, sometimes cloudy, always interesting.

WOW! I wish I were able to just visit all my blog friends in person, so many live in wonderful places. However being able to see your part of this planet via the blog is the next best thing! Thanks for sharing your life with me Rosaria!! XOXO

Reasons said...

Oh stop rubbing it in!! (says she who has moved to the midlands)

Just kidding. Beautiful beautiful shots and keep enjoying it...and blow me some sea air!

Nancy said...

Oh yeah! Love the Oregon Coast. We had two special nights in Cannon Beach over Christmas. You are very fortunate to live in such a beautiful and special place.

Terri Tiffany said...

Oh wow! They are beutiful! You are certainly blessed to live where you are. I have driven through ORegon but we didn't go near the ocean. Wish now we could have.

Love the photos, especially the last one and the blue sky. Driftwood is amazing--I used to make windchimes out of it...
