South Beach Sunset

I went to South Beach for sunset. It is not normally a sunset beach for me because there are no tide pools there. The beach is steeper and there is very little wet sand for reflections. The conditions were as good as they get for this beach an absolutely beautiful sunset! Sunset season is back! The summer marine layer has faded away so the sun can reach the horizon and the storms come and go leaving amazing clouds to light up the sky.

Starfish

There is a lot of talk about the starfish and wasting disease and fukushima but here in Gold Beach on the Southern Oregon Coast the starfish are abundant and doing great.  These were taken this afternoon.

North Jetty 8-24

I was standing on the jetty sending a text and looked up and a Juvenile Great Blue Heron had landed right in front of me. There was another one a little bit further down the jetty. As time passed there were 5 or 6 coming and going! A bunch of Osprey showed up to attempt an evening meal as well. The seals were watching and one attempted to give me a great pic but the camera focus was not quick enough for her maneuvers.
