Love Lavender

In July of every year Oregon holds lavender festivals all across the state. This lavender farm, though small, is very close to home so made the perfect, short afternoon outing on a very warm day.

More Beach Day Photos



"What is this magic place?"
 I answer "Why, this is the Beach my love." 




A lifetime will not be enough to gather, move, pile, play with all this sand.

Thank You For The Day At The Beach

I'm so glad I didn't miss this one. 




Beach Day

Safe to say,
not one of us has had
a milder, more magnificent day
at the Oregon beach!

Fort Stevens Oregon, and Astoria

Our camping trip to Fort Stevens included an array of activities. Truly something for everyone; 
a nearby beach with an old sunken sailing ship, bike trails, hiking trails, lots of military history at the Fort, Sunday market and shops in Astoria, the usual eating way too much, and last but not least sitting around the blazing campfire consuming s'mores. (I almost omitted the huge and ravenous mosquitoes. Not really unexpected this time of year.) Also a Nice time with family and friends.

Humming Bird


The time for sitting on the patio, camera poised, in the early morning light, to possibly capture a humming bird photo. I was checking my focus on these flowers when the hummer literally appeared  in my view finder. Right there, perfectly in focus. Magic. He didn't stay more than two seconds while I snapped three shots.Then he was gone as quickly as he came.
