Wiley Coyote Goes to Town

We were driving south on Highway 101 through Yachats yesterday.  As we drove past the Adobe Resort I saw this coyote standing in the middle of the trees.

Don quickly flipped a U’y to get a photo.  A subaru also stopped to watch but they had barking dogs in their car.

Wanting to cross Highway 101 in Yachats

Wiley looks both ways and waits to cross Highway 101.

But he doesn’t like the attention or the barking dogs.

I think I heard the crow say, “Yeah!  You better run!”

Yachats Agate Festival 2014

We had to drop in on the Agate Festival in Yachats today.  There’s more tomorrow so check out the notice if you’re in town:


There were SO many beautiful agates and things made from agates.  We got lots of ideas!

We didn’t buy anything.  I asked “how much for the little turtle earrings?”  When she said, “$75”, I told her “I’d better not touch those.”

Junuary on the Oregon Coast

We took advantage of the June-like weather to enjoy the crashing ocean waves.  Okay, it’s really NOT like June on the Oregon Coast because this is colder and sunnier.

But this is as good as a summer day in January.  What a lovely day!
