OT-Amazing weekend at the Oregon Coast

After being with my A for 20 years, being separated for 2 years with a couple serious attempts at reconciliation, I think I might actually be enjoying a healthy relationship. It's really too soon to tell though, since we have only known each other a couple of months. Regardless of that, we just spent a long weekend at the central coast of Oregon, and I wanted to share the beautiful scenery with all of you.

This is the lighthouse at Heceta Head. One of the most photographed lighthouses in the country.

This is the Devil's Churn, a narrow chasm in the coast formed from lava rock where the waves literally churn.

Beautiful scenery; I know you can't show us, but hope the company was pleasant to look at, too. :-) Sounds lovely.

Yes, the company was very pleasant, even though the weather was overcast and drizzly most of the time. We did take some pictures of us with the automatic timer and tripod, but those are only for us.

Did you get into Yachats? Used to spend some time there every once in awhile.

Yes, as a matter of fact, that is the town we were in. (Actually we camped at Cape Perpetua) What a lovely place. First time I've ever been there. I will definitely go back.

Beautiful pictures.

I particularly love the lighthouse scene. Talk about a picture that can tell a thousand words! I kind of identify with the lighthouse...standing alone high above the rocks and waves. Even after weathering so many violent storms, it's light still glows as it searches and waits for something else to come along to justify it's worth - to validate it's real reason for existence!

I've always wanted to visit No. Ca, Oregon and Wash. state. I love the outdoors, and camping!!! Maybe one day!

Thanks for the inspiration. Glad you had a wonderful time.

thanks for sharing this-- it doesn't seem off topic at all-- your enjoying nature, relationships, and life is very inspiring to those of us blinking and squinting, trying to let go off a past/trying to move on with life after a shattering relationship with an AH loved one. thank you again.
