Thanks for stopping by today... thought I would share a few pictures I took last week. The first photo is of the Oregon coast taken at the jetty at Ft. Stevens state park. The views of the Pacific were amazing and all the more so because the sun had come out! We were staying in Long Beach, WA which is very close to Oregon so we spent several days making trips to Oregon to visit Canon Beach, Tillamook and the area around Astoria. Ft. Stevens is just outside Astoria.
This next photo was taken at Cape Disappointment state park in Washington. When we got to the park it was rather cool and cloudy, but as we were walking up to the Cape Disappointment lighthouse the sun came out. We came around a bend in the trail and this beautiful little cove came into sight. Just had to take a picture! Cape Disappointment State Park is about 5 miles from Long Beach. If you go to Long Beach definitely head to Cape Disappointment State Park.
As is typical on the Washington coast our weather was rather spotty. Most of the time it was cloudy most of the day and so capturing a sunset is pretty hard. Finally on Thursday the weather cleared up and I was able to get some photos of the sun setting on the Pacific from the boardwalk at Long Beach, WA. The condos we were staying at were just a short walk from the beach and the boardwalk. My little guy, Gabriel, was with me and he was absolutely captivated by the way the sun seemed to slowly sink into the Pacific.
