Coastal Wanderings: The Conquering of a Viewpoint

Yea, five miners rescued from the mine now!
Can you imagine going from darkness to light?
From being trapped to freedom?
It seems miraculous!
Now back to the coast...

Near this area--Neskowin
there is a viewpoint.
Now viewpoints (at least in my mind) equal cliffs...
and at the coast,
usually high, sheer cliffs over water.
So the first time we passed here
I suggested rather urgently that we NOT stop!
I really did.
But the second time...
I decided it was time to try...

We approached the viewpoint''s exit really, really slowly.

And parked where the trailers and trucks do--
near this hedge and not in the area closest to--

this wall-
this nice, solid looking, rock wall
behind which you can see only sky.
stepped up on the sidewalk
and saw this



and more views of the ocean and hillsides
(but the light was horrific for pictures so I won't post anymore here).
Pretty scary, huh?
Yea, I agree--not at all!
in fact quite often,
fear of something
stops you from enjoying life as God meant it to be enjoyed!
as in this case,
fear is simply:

What fears has God helped you overcome?
Not sure who came up with the above acronym for FEAR but it really is a good one:)

Coastal Wanderings: Garibaldi

I'm just a LITTLE (actually a WHOLE LOT) excited right now due to the safe rescue of two three of the Chilean miners, so I hope that my posts this evening make sense:) Oh well--please indulge me as I rejoice, cry and get thoroughly happy over tonight's good news (and continue to pray for the men still trapped deep in our earth).
And now back to some coast views from one of my favorite towns
(but one I had not been to for a long, long time)--
This photo shows the things I love most about this town.
Can you guess what they are?

Another view of the waterfront area.
I so LOVE this bay!
A pier.
Nice lighting this day--I like some clouds,
it must be the Pacific Northwesterner in me:)
You might not know it but there is an area not too far away from here that is considered a ghost town...it was a town built on land between the bay and the ocean.
Any guesses as to the town's name?
Lucky, local residents.
I envy them a bit.
Another local resident-
another bay view.

And another-
I was probably playing with the settings of the camera at this point--
even before I had a DSLR I took many photos of seagulls because I've always liked them!

Old smokestack--
I believe there was a mill here at one time.
Did I say I LOVE this area?
Blessings going out from my home to yours,
