Coos Bay, Oregon

After an all-too-long spell of cold, rainy weather (and an inch or two of snow in Portland!,) it was a reprieve to feel the sun again. I arrived in Coos Bay, after spending a week with Emily in Portland, and made my way to Bastendorff Beach in Charleston just a few miles west of Coos Bay. The air was crisp, the water was cold, and it felt good to walk along the beach barefoot. The beach was quiet, save for a few hardy 'beach bugs' drawn to the waves and sand by the warm sun. I stayed until sunset - soaking in the Oregon coastline.

I remember you saying that the Oregon coast was one of your favorite places when you were on your Great Adventure. It looks beautiful...and no snow!

Hey Jeff, I have been trying to leave comments, without success to date. Will try again... Bastendorff beach must be close to where Ben is...looks beautiful, and hopefully warm.

I love your pics, Jeff. I especially love Sadie and Williams pics and that gorgeous Oregon coast lighthouse. Wow! I can see we're all in for another "greater adventure" vicariously through your eyes.
