First day of winter – Oregon Coast

It was 50F today!  Not bad for the first day of winter!

We grabbed a sandwich from Subway and ate it at Bob Creek Wayside, between Cape Perpetua Scenic Area and Heceta Lighthouse.  A couple seals were feeding in the cove and kept an eye on the beach-walkers.

Lots of seafoam and clouds remain from the storm that blew through last night.

Some pretty good wave-action too.

Rhody Days Are Comin’

The rhododendrons smell as purdy as they look!  I’m sure glad the deer don’t eat them.

 Sutton and Alder Dune campgrounds are a great place to stay for Rhody Days in Florence, Oregon – May 17th

I love wisteria!  It’s so delicate and graceful looking.

I still don’t know if these are a dwarf Rhody or something else.

But look what I happened upon!  Are spiders chameleons?  Or is there a different variety of spider for each color of flower?

Anytime I see a spider on a flower it is exactly the color of the flower.

Nature is SO cool!   Heavenly Father is an artist!
