I would love to take a long walk on that beach.


What a beautiful beach!! Sea and sky are shining and welcoming each other. What we do not have in Nara is sea. Nara is a basin surrounded by mountains. I do hope to see this fabulous scenery someday!


so much sea and sky - wonderful pics....empty beaches, too - I'll bet the water is really cold!

What lovely shots. This is certainly a place I would enjoy visiting.

The stairs remind me of the ones I saw in Del Mar, Ca. but the beaches there were a lot more rocky, dark and covered in seaweed.

This beach looks so clean and delightful.


Thank Goodness for Oswald West. It sure does make a difference in the beauty of the Oregon coast. All it takes is one trip on US 1 to see it. Beautiful pictures.

Now I like that..public access..and it is a stunning beach..would love to take a walk with you...


Gorgeous beach shots! It seems to extend on forever and ever. I would love to visit Oregon. Must put it on my bucket list. :)


What a beautiful spot to be, Sallie, and what a debt of gratitude is owed to Oswald West in putting the people and their beaches first. What a forward thinking man he was.

Hi there - what a great looking beach - its looks like the kind of place where you can set a walk by the time you want to walk "I'll walk for an hour and then turn around!".

Australia is 15 hours from LA and you can always stop for a few days in New Zealand!

All of the beaches are public access? Wow, that is amazing! What a gift he gave everyone.


A beautiful wide expanse of beach and sky - gorgeous!


What a lovely place to be spending August, Sallie.

I love that beach!


Imagine! A politician that actually cared about something so important to everyone. Color me very impressed. I visited Cannon Beach with my daughter last year and enjoyed it immensely. And I was so amazed that there were volunteers stationed in different places to help identify many of the sea creatures attached to the rocks.


I loved reading about the governor and what he did for all Oregonians and visitors. What a wonderful thing to do. As best I remember, In Palm Beach were I grew up, the big estates on the Atlantic (i.e.the Kennedy Compound) basically own the beach, too. That may have changed considering I am as old as I am, but I doubt it. My memories of Canon Beach are so special. What a heavenly place to visit. Your picture of the seashore and the skies are beautiful. I really enjoyed your post and the history you shared with us. genie


Those long empty beaches look so inviting.

I would love to spend some time there.. Maybe some day.. Hope all is well with you


I love Oregon's shoreline. The beaches are so scenic and wild. Glad the weather cooperated, Sallie!


That was a forward-looking man, we need more like him today. Beautiful photos, I'd love to stay at a motel like that and spend time on a sunny beach.


It is great that the Oregon beaches are public beaches. I found most of the Oregon coast to be beautiful, I loved it there. Great shots, Sallie!

It's hard to find any beaches more beautiful that the ones in Oregon! Really terrific captures for the day, Sallie!! And definitely a governor ahead of his time! Thanks for the beauty!! Have a great week!

What a vast and wonderful beach and sky. Just looking at your photos is relaxing. I so admire the Governor who sounds ahead of his time and quite visionary when it comes to respecting the environment.

I think all beaches should be off limits to vehicles! These are beautiful beaches!


Beautiful shots of the Oregon coastline.


Absolutely beautiful place. Very nice shots of the beach.


My sort of beach! It's good that the sun shone for you too; here the Bank Holiday weekend was a washout, cold and windy...
