Seaside

The north Oregon coast....a five hour drive from the desert.


An entirely different beach experience with Trux...he had so much fun!

Trux is color coordinated with the landscape! Re: stand up paddling - I know what you mean about some outdoor endeavors seeming less than fun. I don't get rock climbing or marathon running. But good for those who do!

Your photo montage is great!

Hey Harriet said...

Trux may pester you guys to relocate to the beach now :)

I grew up on the Atlantic Ocean and I loved walking the beach in the winter. Thanks for the great photos of your happy pup and the beach!!

I'm not familiar with the Pacific Ocean, being an Eastern Coast gal. It looks beautifully wild, remote, and peaceful. And Trux looks like she's completely in her element there!

I hope you had a wonderful time there.

Yippee...yippee...yippee...can I roll in this Ma...?

Looks like you and Fluffy...I mean TRUX, had a great day at the beach...did I mention that you're both lucky stiffs...and only a 5 hour drive. Scratchy's afraid of the water, maybe because her first experience was an aligator infested lake in Florida...smart dog! Ha!

wow five hours is a long way! looks like trux enjoyed himself!
: )

Jane-I think 5 hours is a long drive to the coast, too. But then I read the comment from Sharon in Iowa...and realize I'm lucky to live in a state that's located on the coast, and not one in the midwest...far from the sea.

TRUX so HAPPY! Beautiful photos! We live right on the bay of the sound- The ocean is a bit of a drive- people don't understand that the bay is sort of lake-ish rather than crashing waves and sand. Looks like a wonderful day!

So worth the 5 hours, wasn't it? Great photos.

I love the coastline in your part of the world - I briefly visited the area a couple of years ago to check out schools, houses...etc. as we were set to spend a 3 year spell in Portland.
I absolutely loved the coastal area and the vienyards further south...still, no regrets..:)

Karine said...

I love your photo montage - and Trux fits the color scheme beautifully!!! Look how handsome he is. I am jealous of your beach visit.

Is this dog heaven, or what?????

M.Kate said...

Trux sure is happy there, I know I would be :D
I was looking at your clock by the sidebar..it's exactly the same timing here, we are 24 hours apart..how interesting :p

Beautiful photos! I love the Oregon coast...

BaldyLocks said...

I sure miss my border collie. She was the best. And I also miss the beach which is dumb because I could just walk to it any time.

Your photos are lovely. It reminds me of home.
