Oregon & Florida – Beaches

If you have been following my blog, you know that my posts have been absent for the past couple weeks.  My 81 year old mother had hip surgery and I have been busy assisting her.  Fortunately, she is doing well and on the road to full recovery.  (However, it may be weeks before I am photographing our beautiful country again.)

Here are some beach photographs of Florida and Oregon.  Two very distant areas – and equally beautiful!

Milwaukie, Oregon –

My 5 and 7 year old friends and I like to give flowers a little more life when they are wilting.  So we remove their stems, fill their “Kiddie pool” with water, and place the flowers in.  We call it the “flower pond.”

Oregon – near Otter Rock

As I drove along the coast of Oregon, I stopped along the Pacific ocean (near Otter Rock).  (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Otter_Rock,_Oregon)

The views were magnificent.  The sun was beginning to set.

Oregon – Newport

On my way south, down the coast of Oregon,  I stopped in Newport.  It is a large city for the coast, having approximately 10,000.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newport,_Oregon)

I drove through the city and down to the docks area.  The smell of fish was in the air.  It was a gorgeous summer night.

DSCN9543DSCN9532I walked into a bar on the docks.  I told them that I was a professional balloon twister and wondered if they could gave me some work.  The owner gave me $20 and asked me to make as many balloons for his customers as $20 would take me.  So I had some fun twisting balloons and made a little gas money.  (It was a late night bar setting, so some of  the requests were obscene.)

I was planning to camp out that night and asked where it would be safe to car camp.  They told me to sleep in the big lot outside of their bar.

It was a good night’s sleep.

Before I left Newport, I snapped a few more pictures.
