Spring break in Oregon brought sunshine and blue skies to the coast.
April brought...well it brought normal spring weather to the PNW:)
But we don't let little things like wind, cold and a few showers stop us...
so it was off to Tillamook and Garibaldi for a day trip.
At Bar View County Park we are always met by busy seagulls doing their seagull thing.
And there is often nice wave action on the jetty...
my husband has spent many hours fishing off these rocks when he was younger.
He is part mountain goat...
he can jump from rock to rock.
I, being of sound mind and horrible balance, leave such things to him.
Aren't they great?
I absolutely LOVE these guys!
And now to break the 'gray' theme I have going here...
a little pretty pink by the bay!
I truly, truly LOVE spring blossoms...
at home so many of our fruit trees are filled with blossoms of white and pink.
Inland, at the Tillamook Forest Center, the Wilson River was running high...
and it looked completely different from this summer when we visited here and walked along it.
The turbulent water was everwhere it seemed and along highway 6 I spotted around a dozen waterfalls and cataracts...so amazingly beautiful!
I SO wanted to stop and take photos of everyone of them...
but once you are in well moving traffic on that road,
you just don't want to stop because you are sure to get stuck behind
someone moving well below the speed limit as we did on the way back
Maybe next time...
LOVE these mountains!
Blessings this Monday evening,
NO! The driver of the Tillamook Transit Bus
was not one of the slow moving vehicles...
they were driving quite appropriately for the road and weather.
