You had a splendid weekend, all the photos are beautiful. The Pacific looks impressive, no wonder that you love to gaze it!


I'm so glad you spend time at the coast as I have been jonesing for the shore.


Looks like Coos Bay is a fine place. I love working sea ports but I'm okay with the touristy things as well.
Those oysters look tasty, what a great place for a meal.

Cheers to starting a new adventure around the sun, Sallie!! Your photos of the ocean are beautiful (on this and last week’s posts). You’ve got me wanting to see and hear crashing waves. Delightful!

Beautiful oceans, clean water as well. Thanks Sallie.

I am ready to have a cup of tea after seeing the wonderful gardens and the red tree bark. What a lovely weekend.

Your weekend away must have been delightful; looking at the ocean and those wonderful scenic views, walking in a beautiful garden where there were seasonal flowers, enjoying delicious food and wine was a good way to celebrate a special occasion. Belated best wishes to you.


Sallie - lovely ocean scenes, and of course, you know I love the flowers. Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!


You sure had a great weekend those oysters made my mouth water.


Thank you for sharing your world it takes me on a trip of my own!!


The garden looks amazing! Love the flowers and the special tree. The bark has interesting pattern on it.


Thanks for sharing more wonderful views. I always enjoy taking little trips with you


Happy Anniversary Sallie! Looks like a great trip. The gardens would draw me in and so would the Oregon Coastline. Can't wait to get back to see it. Happy September!

I love the ambience of the restaurant. Looks like my kind of place! Coos Bay is on my list of places I would like to visit.

What fun to see other parts of the town - that wood pile is crazy!


Es un gran océano y aunque se le ha llamado Pacífico, no es tan Pacífico como dice su nombre.
Me gusta la foto de este océano y las plantas de tus siguientes fotografías.


Thanks Sallie for the Happy Anniversary wishes in the comment on my blog post. That meal you showed with the oysters and wine looked great to me as I have not had oysters on the half shell in many years. However, I was curious about the sunken boat and if you mentioned it in a previous post I missed the story.


Gardens and the ocean, it doesn't get much better than that. That view while eating oysters is interesting. Glad you had a lovely time.

The sky is really "outrageously" blue, dear Sallie - and the sea, of course, a wonderful sight! But the flower pictures are also a pleasure. And the tree with the red bark. I agree with you that there are so many nearby places for beautiful trips - both in your country and in mine...
I have never eaten oysters. When I was a child of about 5 my parents met French people on a campsite in Croatia and went oyster and sea urchin diving with them - I wasn't tempted by the llok of oysters but I tasted a sea urchin (I liked it!)
All the best from Austria,

So lovely. I think it's fabulous that you enjoy the two great coasts our country has to offer. It's been ages since we've had oysters. Not something I'd order except when closer to the coast. Ocean and garden in the same weekend. Wonderful! Have the fires from Grants Pass sent smoke your way? My cousin and her husband have had to evacuate their home and are in a hotel. Hope you have a good week.


I could look at pictures of the pacific all day long. It looks a beautiful place to visit with plenty to see. Oysters are not my favourite sea food but I must admit your photo makes them look very enticing.


I'm loving your photos, can't wait until hydrangeas are flowering here in a few months and there's something aobut ships at wharves that appeal to me, just that fresh ocean smell.


Some nice one Sallie. Have a good week

Wonderful shots.

The park is really so beautiful and so is Coos Bay. Beautiful view and such delicious food. I am so glad you had such a gorgeous birthday trip!

I'll be so happy when we can make a trip...maybe this Fall! You had a wonderful time and saw so much beauty. It's a pretty part of the country at this time of year!


I always found that the Pacific Ocean was a bluer and wilder-looking ocean than the Atlantic Ocean. Perhaps it is because its shoreline is less developed? We love oysters and would love to have a dozen there with such a pretty view!


I could imagine that I was hearing the Song of the Sea from this and your previous Blog!


Lovely photos from your trip. I do love the Oregon coastline.
The gardens look lovely, a beautiful walk. Your dinner sounds delicious. Pretty view of the lake. Take care, have a happy new week!

What a beautiful place to spend a weekend. The gardens are lovely, and although I don't enjoy oysters, I'm glad you were able to treat yourself. The west coast has such wonderful scenery!
