Adventure to the Coast

I knew last Saturday was going to be a good day to venture to the sea.
This week the weather has become winter here in Oregon
and with that prediction I had to go.
There has been a little snow, but the temperatures have considerably dropped.
More snow is due tonight and for the next few days.
So off to the Pacific Ocean at Oceanside, Oregon and a walk along the shoreline.
Yes, there was some tea in the cup by the sea too.
The picture is a bit fuzzy, but I had to be quick.
I wanted a picture with the foam surrounding the cup.
Well now you might think that is a crazy idea, 
but I had to try.
I know others walking nearby probably thought I was some crazy lady.
The waves caught me almost to my knees and the cup almost floated away.
It was rather hilarious! I loved it!
Thankful the sun was out, as I did it not once but four times.
Do  you think I would learn? Ha! I was determined!
This is the best I could get with my camera by the sea.
Oh I love the blue peeking out and reflecting on the sand.
There were quite a few others taking a pause in their day to enjoy time by the shoreline.
Head's down, of course, for you never know what you might find.
Sometimes there is an agate or two in amongst the rocks.
And yes, the sipping did continue, but at a safer distance.
It was a gorgeous day to adventure to the Coast,
walk awhile, and see what we can see.
I hope for you a weekend of adventure whether to the sea or just down the street.
Let's keep walking and discovering, then laugh if something catches you by surprise.

Happy weekend, dear friends!

That looks like a wonderful adventure. I'd love to road trip out to the coast for the day with you sometime, maybe after all this winter weather is gone.

A wonderful adventure indeed, such fun.

Oh I really love these pictures! They capture the immediacy of your adventure in a wonderful way. I can almost hear the waves.

You're definitely not crazy. That's exactly the kind of weird, wonderful thing I'd do -- put it down and wait for the foam. Oh wait -- maybe we are both crazy!

Love the patch of blue coming through those wonderful clouds!

Even though it was a dreary day, it sounds like a wonderful day at the ocean. That tea cup is too cute, I love that! I always wonder how you manage to get a hot cup of tea in your nature photos....very creative. : )

Your day at the beach was wonderful! I'm so glad your cup - or you! - didn't float out to sea. We spent a week at the beach last month with our cabin-on-wheels. Most of the days were sunny and nice so long walks on the beach were part of our days. Then a big storm came in and we had a 'front row seat' to watch it.

My heart is always longing for the coast - and now seeing Oregon's familiar rocks and beaches I wish I could have been there with you. Lovely scenery and you captured the atmosphere so well Marilyn.

You are so blessed to be able to get to the coast. Something I haven't done for quite a while. Walking along a beach, watching the waves, listening to the rhythm as they lap back and forth is both an invigorating and relaxing experience. What a wonderful adventure you had that day. Wishing you a new week full of good moments.

GORGEOUS images, Marilyn... absolutely gorgeous! Time by the water, by the shore, not matter how long or brief is sooo restorative... *sigh*... And tea by the shore--even more perfect! ;) ((HUGS))

Your excursions to the ocean are always fun... but the vision of you trying to capture the photo with the sea foam and the tea cup... oh, I wish I had been there. I would have been trying to do the same thing, laughing right along with you! How long is the drive to the ocean?
