By the Sea

By the sea, by the beautiful sea

To my way of thinking there is nothing more captivatingly majestic than the seaside.  Here’s just a few pics of the views as we enjoyed our recent visit to the Oregon Coast.

These floats decorated a fence at Seaside, more proof that we were at the ocean:

The bridges across the inlets are marvels of engineering:



And proof that we were actually there:





  1. Great photos and post. I have always loved lighthouses too and love to paint seascapes with a lighthouse. I had never seen an beach but the southern ones until I got to go to Mass. once years. I love the rocky coasts and the flapping of the waves.

  2. Lovely lovely photos. We have cousins in Newport but haven't been for a while - maybe this summer.

  3. oh we love going to the beach...so peaceful just to listen to the waves...and of course the scenery...great pics!

  4. Love the photos. There's something very calming about being at the coast. I love it

    Love and hugs Gina xxx
