South Jetty Road – Florence, Oregon #2

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails South Jetty RV Resort in Florence, Oregon. I’ve been here several times before. I plan to depart from here June 5th. I’ll slow my pace and spend most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Today’s subject…the South Jetty Road – Florence, Oregon…

Less than one mile south from the City of Florence, the South Jetty Road takes you out to the Pacific Ocean.

Cape Blanco State Park Beach – Sixes, Oregon

The motorhome is parked in the yard of a friend. I’m planning to leave here later this morning. Now that I’ve arrived here, I’m planning to slow my pace and spend the rest of May and most of June along the Oregon coast. Then into the State of Washington for the summer.

Mary is dealing with her over-flowing to-do list plate which can only be handled by herself. I’m hoping she will be able to rejoin me sometime after July 4th.

Yesterday Cheryl and I drove in her car the about two miles to the Cape Blanco State Park Beach.

I started by taking photos in her yard…

A Walk On The Beach…

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails Birch Bay RV resort in Blaine, Washington. This location marks the furthest northern most point of our planned 2014 travels. I’ve been here several times over the years and always enjoy the area. Our departure date is set at August 12th.

Yesterday Mary said she would like to go for a walk on the beach…so we drove the one mile to Birch Bay. I didn’t bring shoes that I wanted to get wet so I remained ashore enjoying the onshore breeze and followed Mary with my camera. Being a bright sunny afternoon most of my photos were shot looking directly west into the sun making for very difficult photography conditions.  Such is life…

As we travel Mary really enjoys chatting with everyone along the way…

Looking north you can see where the water nearly reaches the rocks at high tide…

It’s about 1/4+ mile walk to reach the water…

Another visit…

Mary reported that while it may appear a little muddy it’s really mostly all hard-packed dark sand. She said she enjoyed her walk so it was time well spent on a sunny and warm last day of July!

I HOPE YOU ENJOYED THE PHOTOS.

Yesterday was a sunny at 78 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 79 degrees.

Skagit Bay Beach #3

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort along the shore of Skagit Bay in LaConner, Washington. I’ve been here a number of times over the past years and always enjoy it here. It’s my favorite resort in the entire Thousand Trails system. My departure date is July 29th.

Mary is at home tending to personal matters…home maintenance, family, friends, rentals, etc..  She has made her flight reservations to meet me July 29th in Bellingham, Washington.

I get a lot of nice comments about my photography. I shoot what I call…honest photography. In other words, I refuse to use any radical image altering programs like Photoshop. All I’ll admit to (and the truth) is minor cropping and perhaps a little color enhancement. Essentially, what you see is what I saw. Photography schools teach the best time of day to photograph is the hour just after sunrise or the hour just before sunset. The theory being dramatic side lighting is more enjoyable than midday overhead strong sunlight. It’s true…however most of my photography occurs between 10 AM and 2 PM…when it’s most convenient for me. I started photography in 1974 and was fortunate in my early years to have got some good photography schooling.

Today’s photos are a good example…shot in mid-afternoon. I walked along the beach of Skagit Bay shooting what I could find in the mid-afternoon lighting. Here are the last of the photos I took that day…
