Lots of folks like to visit the beach during the summer. I grew up on Long Island, where access to the beach was easy, and that's what we did as soon as school was over in June- we went to the beach all summer long. Eventually I discovered that the beach was even nicer in the fall. There were less people around, and I could enjoy the sun and the air and the surf from the comfort of a blanket on the shore. No need to go swimming. I would go whenever I could until it was just too cold to be out of doors on the frigid windy beach.
Now that the BLP and I live abut 3 hours from the nearest ocean, a trip to the beach is a special event.
We both prefer September and October for our overnight jaunts to commune with the Pacific Ocean.
Ahhhhhh those negative ions.....!
This past September we stayed in Cannon Beach, Oregon, for the second time since moving West.
Here is the final painting from our recent trip. It's another view of iconic Haystack Rock; this time looking North.
(In October we went to Long Beach and Cape Disappointment (Southwest corner of Washington State) for a second Fall beach trip. I took over a hundred photographs. I managed to narrow the field down to about a half dozen that may become paintings and currently working on one. )
