Today, I was busy enjoying the beautiful spring weather by riding my bike in Vancouver, Washington, with friends.
So for this month's installment of Six Pic Saturday, I've chosen to share a recent walk on the beach with my parents. Our objective: To reach Haystack Rock. Sounds simple and mundane, right?
There it is, hiding in the mist...
To reach it a short strip of beach no more than half a mile lay between us and that rock.
In between, there was rain...
And did I mention nonstop, gusting wind?
The approach from the north was no better. But we were triumphant!
A sign spotted on the return walk speaks to the weather so common to the Oregon Coast: Ecola Inn Seawall, contructed after the storm, Jan 1,2, 1939. So, the next time you set out for a leisurely walk along the beach, be not deterred by the wind and the wet and the waves lapping at your feet.
