Pictures for Pam, Day 199: Natural Bridge at Whaleshead Cove 

(+3 insets!)

I'm running late again but I blame the beauty of the hike we went on today! I had to process pictures to share and one was just not enough! :D

This morning turned out to be heavily overcast but no rain was forecast so we moved ahead with our plans for the day. We hoped to visit the last day's festival vendors as well as go on a hike. So, after our delicious bacon and eggs late-breakfast, we packed up and headed out.

We found some of the vendors near our RV park and enjoyed visiting their stalls. One of them was selling lots of stuff that was useful for the RV crowd and we picked up a bunch of fun things…a pair of telescoping weinie roasting tines, some extra large carabiners to attach stuff, a bbq grill brush and a few other assorted things. All very inexpensive, three cheers! :)

Even though almost all of the vendors were gone we didn't mind because we can always find these vendors wherever we go. What we really wanted to do was go on our hike!

Off we went to the trailhead for the Thomas Creek Whaleshead hike, just a few minutes north of Brookings. The hike turned out to be yet another spectacular adventure, brimming with gorgeous forest and rugged coast views. Both of us had a great time with our photography and enjoying the lovely scenery all around us. I even got some super pictures of a Stellar Jay who sat in "full fluff" on a branch where I was able to get a wonderful view. (I'll post another day as a main image, what a lovely bird!) We got pictures of cool mushrooms and forest views, lots of flowers and many other pretty subjects. What a day for photography! :)

We stopped for a late lunch at the half-way point, which happened to be an incredibly gorgeous view looking north. It featured craggy shoreline, a remote beach and huge boulders rising out of the ocean. What a sight! Sitting there and looking out at the ocean, the fog rolled in and drifted out and it was fun to watch the visibility increase and fade as we nibbled on our tasty fare.

This loop hike took us down nearer to the water, though we were still high above the crashing waves. The highlight of this hike took us to a stunning grotto which featured a natural bridge in the rocks under which the waves rolled in and out. It was so beautiful and we felt so delighted that we got to see this awesome rock formation.

My main picture today is the natural bridge, and my insets include some of the rugged coastal views we enjoyed, including a view from where I sat eating my late lunch! :)

Pam, you are not allowed to NEED to wear the Ruby shoes! :D Glad you enjoyed my pictures of the darling seals! :) I would love to see grey seals too. Actually, I hope to some day have a collection of different seals that I've photographed over the years, I simply adore them! :) Hope your day was good, you were certainly in our thoughts today! :D *BIG HUGS*

A stark, yet beautiful coastal landscape image Janet! I love the dark and rugged rocks (and the natural bridge).

PiP No.1 is really lovely. I like the natural framing from the trees, foliage and fallen tree in the foreground. The diffused light gives the scene a mystical and magical feel. I especially like the way the horizon blends almost seamlessly into the sky.

PiP No.2 is the best of the shots for me..............more great natural framing in the foreground, a beautiful beach and some dark rocks which lead the eye into the distant mist! Awesome!

There's worse places to enjoy a meal "al-fresco" :-)

Bad weather is often, as here, a big advantage for photographers. Great coastline shot!

When I see these photos then I can't wait to be off to the Oregon coast and other parts of California and Oregon. Great place to enjoy your lunch and the overcast weather really accentuates the starkness of the coast. No need to apologize for not writing more. Enjoying yourselves is far more important than sitting at the computer.

I can't believe how similar the coastline there is to ours here in the UK. The pictures could have been taken just down the road from my home. Amazing.

You are so lucky to have a partner who loves doing exactly what you love doing. You are sharing your happy times and interests - it is so very special.
