A Mystery (Or Not)

Some photos don't tell the whole story...
They may leave you wanting to know more...
And more shall be revealed in time dear visitors.
But first...
The talk of the beach...
Do you see him?
There were two sharing the same tree.
This was yet another time I wished for a better zoom!
Still it was quite exciting:)

I LOVE it when the ocean is blue...

nothing like the sea on a sunny day in January.
Unfortunately north of here near Arch Cape there is a wildfire
and we are in a drought situation...
in winter when we usually have our fill of rain--
and snow in the mountains.
I missed this little arch first time around...
amazing how a few steps one way or another changes things.
But back to the beginning...
here's another photo of 'those' things pictured at the start of this post.
Now do you know what they are and what happened decades ago?
Perhaps this video will help.
Either way, I think you'll enjoy it--
I find our history fascinating...
such a wonderful world we live in!

 Have a great weekend!
Do you have plans?
I do...
but if I don't get some more tasks done today,
 my plans won't become a reality.

I'm amazed at how often you get to go to the beach.. or do you live there? Love the ocean shots. Thanks for sharing. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Lovely beach photos! Have a great weekend!

Gracie Saylor said...

Thanks for a wonderful post, Aimee!!! Your photos are lovely and the video such a pleasure to watch. Did I see a bald eagle or a white owl in the tree? Whatever it is I would have been excited, too, to be close enough to take a picture :) xx

Betsy said...

Beautiful pictures and a great video too. That eagle shot is amazing. I do indeed have plans for tomorrow. Class again. Today was 10 hours. I'm tired and brain dead! :-) Have a lovely weekend.

Helen said...

What a beautiful place - and it feels a bit magic too. A wonderful place for photographing.

aimee said...

Thanks! Really happy you liked them! To answer your question, we do go to the beach a lot (not as much as I would like to though), but we don't live there. My hubby would say we live 'close' :)

Thank you! You too--hope you are able to go skiing :)

You are most welcome! I agree--the video is very peaceful! And yes, your first choice is correct--it's a bald eagle in one of the trees that are on top of Proposal Rock! It was SUCH a blessing to see two of them and to have the pleasure of showing them to the Small One and the Hubby too!

SO glad they were a blessing to you! I was thrilled to get a photo of the eagle--as you may have guessed, I am crazy about wildlife and birds!
God WILL give you strength for this Betsy--rest well this weekend:)

I agree! It is definitely a very, very special beach and one of my two favorite Oregon beaches right now!

Becky L. said...

Neskowin is beautiful and so are your photos. Thanks for sharing and video you shared was an added touch. Today I'm getting my old desk emptied and new desk in it's place. A weekend deal for sure. Take care!

aimee said...

Thank you! I am glad you enjoyed the post!
Good luck with getting your new desk set up and have a great weekend:)

Thanks for the visit to the Ghost Forest! And I think that was an eagle in your trees right? Beautiful Oregon Coast. But I know the whole state along with California is in a drought situation. Terrible worry.

RaD said...

Beautiful pictures!!!!

We're in drought season too. Crazy to be in drought season in January isn't it? Makes you wonder what the summer is going to be like...

Willow said...

Well what a beautiful , beautiful area you live in Aimee I do love it here too but oh my gosh that is so majestic, like that Bald Eagle ... wonderful !

Lorrie said...

Your ocean photos really convey the power of the water and the harmony between land and sea. Lovely.

aimee said...

You are most welcome! Yes, it is one of the two Bald Eagles we saw while we were there. It was VERY exciting and beachgoers were spreading the word to newcomers. I agree---the fire up near Arch Cape is even worse then they first estimated and I know that down south is even drier than up here. We desperately need rain.

Glad you enjoyed them--thank you!
It truly is. This drought is widespread in the western USA and yes, it's crazy -- who would have ever thought winter for a drought? I only hope (and pray) that God sends us lots of rain or this summer is going to be a wild one for forest fires.

Why thank you! We think it is, but we are just a little (OK -- a lot) in love with our PNW landscapes:) You live in a gorgeous area too though with all those lovely bogs and (sniff) SNOW--even if Honey Bee doesn't like the latter. I LOVE that Bald Eagle and was thrilled to get a photo of him to share!
Glad you enjoyed the post Willow:)

Thank you! I wanted visitors to feel as if they were there with me. Glad you liked it:)

Nice shots!

Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

Cheesemakin' Mamma said...

Oh, wow! I had no idea that existed on the Oregon Coast. My kids absolutely loved the video. Thanks for sharing! Great pics by the way :) Hope you get all your projects done this weekend!

aimee said...

I didn't know about the Ghost Forest either till just recently:) You are most welcome--so glad Hailey and Josiah enjoyed it! Thank you for your sweet comment Jackie.
I didn't finish the project I wanted to, but am OK with it as I have a more important (and fun) priority right now.

aimee said...

Thank you. Wishing you a good day today!

Topcat said...

Wow Aimee, those are great shots. I think that I would have liked to have been there. Thank you for your note and for thinking about me. I'm getting ready to go for my second heart ultrasound today. I had my first 4 months ago and I have been on meds since then. My valves weren't working efficiently but I'm better now. But we'll see.

Chris said...

What a beautiful place you live and fantastic photographs..
I loved the video the sounds of the sea took me back to my youth as I was brought up by the sea.

aimee said...

Thank you! Feeling so very blessed that the video brought back some sweet memories of your youth!
I would love to live even closer to the sea, but fortunately we are able to visit there often:)

aimee said...

Thanks! Happy to hear you enjoyed them--it's a beautiful, very memorable place and well worth the visit!
I hope your ultrasound went well and that you continue to do better:)
Blessings and peace,

Gorgeous photos, Aimee. You remind me how much I miss the beach. It's been way too long since I was there. Have a good weekend.

aimee said...

Thanks! I hope your path will soon lead you to the sea for a visit...but not until the passes thaw out:)
Stay warm; stay safe...
