Pictures for Pam, Day 193: Beach on Our Coos Bay Hike

Pictures for Pam, Day 193: Beach on Our Coos Bay Hike
(+2 insets!)

Today was another travel day! After we had a delicious breakfast, we each did our parts to pack up the trailer. Both of us have lots of little things to do but it adds up to a lot of stuff if only one person was doing them. As a team, we are getting faster and more efficient at the break-down of the RV and the hookup of the trailer to the truck. It's fun to see how we're improving as time passes.

The weather was perfectly dreadful with rain coming down in a constant torrent and wind gusting against our rig. Big deal! We didn't care...no amount of bad weather could ruin the gorgeous scenery that we enjoyed as we drove along. The rugged coast was accented by incredible waves crashing against the rocks. The rain made the green of the pastures and forest positively glow with vibrance and lushness. The droplets pattered on the road, making beautiful reflections and interesting textures to appreciate. Water peppered the truck, the windshield wipers were such fun to watch as they wiped away the constant splatters of water... We had no worries as we drove along. Pumpkin was in her travel cage on my lap and she was as happy as could be, munching on her fruits and veggies and twittering at us. What a doll! Molly was content to sack out in the back seat. Our family loved this travelling thing...bring on the rain, it didn't bother us at all! :)

We headed up the coast from Coos Bay with an eventual destination of Devil's Lake State Park. On the way we stopped at the charming town of Florence where we shared a jalapeno and bacon burger (without the bun!) and a little salad at a popular local restaurant. We had time to stroll down their main shopping street and enjoyed our visits to a fantastic gallery and a specialty bead shop. What a delight.

We pulled into our campsite at about 5:30 and got everything set up in about an hour. Soon we had our yummy espressos-with-cream and then steaks with veggies along with an unbelievably delicious "fauxtato salad" made with cauliflower instead of potatoes. Better than any "real" potato salad we'd ever had. NOM!!

After dinner, Steve had to do some other stuff but afterwards we had just enough time to walk to the lake...what an incredible campsite and what a stunning lake! My goodness, it's going to be an amazing place here!!

Today's main picture is from our hike a couple of days ago, along with insets that show the forest and the view out to the water from the beginning of our hike, which was over the top of our campsite at Coos Bay...totally amazing views!! The ocean view in my main picture was just one of the dozens upon dozens of jaw-dropping sights we had the good fortune to see on our hike. Best Hike of the Trip!

Pam, I hope that you enjoy the pictures...you're certainly in our thoughts on our adventures! Hope it was an ok day for you...maybe a bit of improvement? Wouldn't that be grand? *BIG HUGS from DEVIL'S LAKE*!

Yet again you have delighted us with your gorgeous photos, Janet. The beach looks amazing and the insets are fabulous. Is that woodland scene with wild garlic on the ground? I'm having a lovely restful time here, only been to the beach once as the weather hasn't been all that good, no rain, just rather overcast!! Still next week we can expect full sun, so that's when we'll be swimming etc.

A magnificent coastal landscape shot Janet - with wonderful wave action!

The view of the sea in the second PiP is beautifully done, with excellent natural framing. The colour of the sea is sublime and I love the wispy cloud formations.

The image in the first PiP is brilliant........the light is absolutely gorgeous, especially the magical patch on the edge of the path. I love the carpet of green leaved flowers as well. I though at first they were wild garlic, but I don't think they are now.

Anyway, I'm running late tonight..........been a busy day of gardening.........so 'nuff said for now!
