Nature & Books belong to the eyes that see them.
It most certainly is, Deb. I never get tired of looking at all my photos from my visits to the Oregon Coast. I hope my readers don't, either!
Oh, so beautiful. I want to dip my toes right now.
Do you know that I have never put my feet in that water! It's never been hot enough to think about sitting out in the sun on the beach or in this little cove, so I never think to dip my toes in. I'm usually wearing tennis shoes for my walk down and don't like to put socks back on when my feet are wet and sandy. You've inspired me to wear my flip flops next time (well, maybe not in December!) and see just how cold that Pacific Ocean feels in Oregon! :)
Looks like such a relaxing place--I would love to pull a beach chair up to the water and just soak it up.
It's absolutely idyllic! But, as I said to Bellezza, I've never put my feet in the water, nor have I taken a beach chair down to sit and relax. I walk along the bluff and then head down to the cove where I search for pretty stones and shells and watch the surf crash against the rocks before heading back to the bluff to continue on with my walk. I really should take down a chair and my book next time I'm there, that is if it's warm enough. Of course, I doubt I'd read a single page! Too many distractions!
Does someone live in that house? Your mum? Why is it named that? I'm not a beach sitter - much prefer walking along it.
There are two individual houses in this series of photos and yes, someone lives in them. Not sure if they live there year-round or only occasionally.I'm not sure of the history of the name, but there is another cove to the south called Whale Cove. The gated community, as well as this smaller cove, is called Little Whale Cove. Depoe Bay, which is the city in which Little Whale Cove is located, is the whale watching capital of the Oregon Coast. This link should show you the two coves.
