Oyster Shells and the Oregon Coast
We took a trip to the Oregon coast last week and visited Brookings, Gold Beach and Bandon. I was surprised at the huge rocks along the coastline. We spent some time at Harris Beach and I was able to find a few things to draw. Compared to some of the northern beaches, these beaches didn't have a lot of shells and such to draw this time. Wildflowers were in bloom everywhere though ~ bright pink sweet peas everywhere. I loved it.
We had fog and clouds the whole time we were there, but it was nice and calm and cool at 55. No wind really. I was thinking about it and I'd rather have fog and no sun than really strong wind, so I was happy.
I think maybe the gulls like to have their pictures taken. They seem to be a pretty relaxed bird and do their thing. A bunch of them were behind this rock bathing and fluttering about in the water. Fun to watch.
I always like to take photos of the boats when I visit the coast. Boating and fishing is such a different way of life than what I'm used to and I find it really interesting.
I liked this photo for all the shades of grey in it.
