Default More travels of Ken..:)

We thought that summer had gotten away from us this year. It just never really came, only a couple of days reached into 80’s. I know for some of you poor guys 80’s would have been wonderful but for us it just wasn’t the norm.


So we decided to get away for a few midweek days and head down to one of our favourite spots on the Oregon coast. Oceanside. Oceanside is about 14 miles west of Tillamook, just south of Cape Meares. One two lane black top to get in and out. No malls or gift shops, in fact, no shops. The closest store is a two mile walk down the beach, so we stocked up before arriving.


There’s a small but nice restaurant and a friendly coffee shop and one, 8 room motel and some beach cabins. We chose the motel this time and managed to get the one literally overlooking the beach. A few of these shots were from our room.


Armed with books, magazines and a card game we settled in. In long enough to get the first shot of the sunset.
There’s a tunnel through the cliff about 40 yards long that goes to a rocky cove, Sharon loves to look for beach agates there.

First Sunset.

....I am with Steven on this set, "What a scenic hideaway." Nothing like that in the Republic of Texas.

Hey Ken ..

Fab stuff... you live in possibly the best part of the states !!! I'll have to take a trip up to that part of Oregon when I get a chance to visit...

Cheers

Harj

Those shots are remembering me of Tofino, BC ... The tree on the cliff is the one I like the most.

Thanks guys, comments mean a lot from ya'll (bit of a Texas accent there for Bob)

Don't visit here before consulting over your itinerary Harj.

Gilles, you have to stay away from hospitals, don't ya know they're full of sick people.. We used to go and play on Vancouver Island a lot. Victoria is a fav. city, through Port Alberni and camp at Long Beach in the old VW van. Tofino is just up from there, pretty wild area at times. Hope you get back there soon.

I should have thought of travel magazines a long way back Steven, thanks though.

Great place for relaxing Ted, just have to plan your own fun and food ahead. Remember those days. Cell phones are useless there...great!

All the shots were with the 500 with either the 14-45 or the 70-300. Worked well for me except somehow I'd put the focus in "spot" mode played havoc with my lighting depending where I focused, the misty seemed to be affected by this as well. I usually leave it on "matrix" with it at center of the '3' focus spots.
