I was lucky to get away for a bit this past week. Walking on a beach on a cool sunny day is a great way to clear one’s head. And the lack of things to trip on make walking free and easy, unlike walking on sidewalks in town.
One of my favorite beach walks is south of Cannon Beach, beginning at Tolovana and heading south to Jockey Cap and Silver Point. It’s much quieter down that way, away from Haystack Rock.
Further down the coast, north of Rockaway, looking back to see Twin Rocks. (I do love monoliths.)
I spotted this sea lion on Nedonna Beach at the South Nehalem Bay Jetty.
Looks like someone needs a cuppa coffee! He did swim back out to sea after this.
Lots of jellyfish on the beach, some big and some small.
I saw the Big Dipper each night, and managed to catch it with my iPhone. Turn up your screen brightness if you need help to see it.
And I finished knitting Half the Knit Sky for my KAL, just in time. (See how I snuck the knit sky in with the night sky?) Now it’s time to block. If you’re knitting along, post a picture by August 31 for the last round of prizes.
It was a lovely getaway. Back to work!
