it’s been a while, i know…. it’s not that i don’t have anything to share. quite the opposite in fact. more accurately, i don’t know where to begin. whenever i visit a place that turns out to be a sort of photographic feast, i get a little bit overwhelmed and even bogged down trying to sort through everything and come up with a way to share it.
the oregon coast speaks to me in a big way. which is why we have spent something like 8 weeks in the last 3 years meandering and poking into all its little nooks and crannies. amazing. it’s hard to imagine a place that could be more beautiful.

and for the most part, it’s pretty uncrowded. this was the first time we visited in august, however. since this is one of the most reliable months weather-wise and the kids were not yet back to school, campers were out in droves. the biggest difficulty we encountered came in the form of full campgrounds. since we don’t do reservations (it’s always worked out in the past!) it presented quite a challenge and we ended up in quite a few “less than ideal” spots. just part of the adventure i guess
well, i have a lot more to share…. it will come in time. i’m just trying to transition back into “real life” and frankly, having a bit of a hard time. although i’m incredibly grateful for this experience and for safe travel once again, it seems the old creative demons went on vacation too, and are now all back to haunt me. struggling somewhat, but i know it’s all part of the ebb and flow.. looking forward to catching up with all of you soon!
