Bandon Beach...

On our recent vacation, one day we took a drive from the little cabin on the Umpqua River south on coastal highway 101 to the little town of Bandon, Oregon. The coastline there is rocky and dramatic and reminds me a bit of the coast of Maine. The weather was gray and moody, but not cold or windy.
 It's a beautiful and dramatic view from the cliff top overlooking the beach.
 There's a walking path along the cliff edge and then stairs you can walk down to the beach.
I enjoyed walking along the shore and exploring all the nooks and crannies of this rocky stretch of beach. There was even a dead shark washed up on shore, but I'll spare you a photo of that!

In the photo below you can see a large tree trunk that has washed up on the shore and is now beginning to petrify.

I loved our time at Bandon beach and hope you enjoy the photos!

  1. I love your photos of my favorite beach. Of course you know that we lived just blocks from there when our kids were young. We recently visited there again for a few hours and I just downloaded my photos to my computer yesterday. As I looked at your photos I smiled and recalled so many times our family played on that beach. Thanks for sharing your day and your wonderful photos.

  2. That’s my favorite area on the coast! We’re Oregonians!

  3. Elizabeth - these are striking shots - sometimes, the gray makes for drama! I was struck by your use of the term 'nooks and crannies' - that's me! I like to explore everything thoroughly. Thanks for the beach walk today, and thanks even more for your recent visit to my blog!

  4. I love the Oregon coast, so rugged and rocky. And all that fog. - Margy

  5. Any day is a great day to walk along the beach. We have none close but have enjoyed the times that I have gotten to. Enjoyed seeing your photos of your visit. I pick the 2nd and 7th as my favorite but all are great captures.
