Oregon's Coast


Clear Skies Give Way to Clouds

Gray Clouds Cover The Ceiling

The Rain Is Coming



She's a beauty all her own
Gray sand shores stretched miles
Treasures from the sea amidst green foam


Morning fog covers her beaches
Combers walk in a misty cloak
Seeking a treasure within arms reach
Hear the faint horn of the fishermens boat

She shares a day or hour
Of windless sunshine
Only to remind she is alive with element
Fog gives way to blackened clouds
That touch the horizon

Downpour of rain soaks her gray sands
The surf intensifies pounding the shoreline
Birds and gulls seek refuge inland
She allows it to last but for a short time

A storm she has sent although be it brief
Has cleansed the coastline
Gives way to the sun and it's warm relief

So do give her time
And she'll show you she can
Change without notice...

But on her demand


Nevertooold


After the storm passed the sky was graced with weeping clouds like the one below.  
It was truly beautiful to see and enjoy.




The morning suns light sabers pierce through the woods






Playing in the surf

That's good; it's so nice when they go great. I've been doing ok. How have you been doing? It rained a few days down here from the tropical storm that just popped up out of nowhere, but now back to the sunny sky and hot days again for now. Thanks, and hope you have a wonderful rest of week.

NeverTooOld said...

Hi T, Good to hear the trop storm did not disrupt too much down your way as I know some can be quite intense. Glad you're back to sunny days and warm weather. We're in overcast skies today with rain yest and day before. Friday should prove dry and will allow me the last few weekends of g-sales and e-sales before the end of the season. I also wish you a wonderful weeks end as well as the weekend! See ya soon in chats and take care.

All The Best,

Dave
