Oregon Coast Beauty

Bill and I will be leaving Bullards Beach State Park on Tuesday, and making our way to the Mount Hood area for a couple of weeks before moving on to Prospect, and the Crater Lake area of Oregon.  So, we decided to take another drive along the coastline, and just take in some more of all the beauty there is to soak up here.

We stopped to take in this area during low tide, and found this interesting wash cut into the sand by a creek that feeds into the ocean.

Then we made a stop at Sunset Bay State Park to visit the stunning Botanical Gardens. Such care taken when they created this wonderland of beautiful landscaping showcasing amazing flowers of every color.

Around every corner is a treat for the eyes, and the smell of some of the roses just can’t be beat.


Immaculate lawns and well manicured hedges surround every type of flower.


A peaceful pond sits in the middle of the gardens with benches placed all around the pond so you can stop and just take it all in.

We were intrigued by the size of the leaves on this plant called a Gunnera Manicata, known as a Brazilian giant-rhubarb, or Dinosaur food. The leaves in this plant are the size of a small child.

And some of the roses were as big as a newborn baby’s head.


We continued up the coast, and made our way over to Cape Arago State Park, for one last look at the clear blue water that just leaves you spellbound as you watch the waves splash up on the huge rocks that jet up out of the ocean.

I don’t think I could ever get tired of looking at the beautiful rock formations in and around this amazing Oregon Coastline.

Both Bill and I feel like we’ve had the journey of a lifetime here on the Oregon Coast, and we feel so very blessed for   the opportunity to come here. We can’t wait to see what else awaits us as we travel further into Oregon.

Stay Tuned!
