Oregon: Moss, Ocean, Sunset and No Selfie Sticks!

Almost Wordless Wednesday: several pictures from our Eugene-Oregon Coast trip.
Oregon coast is one of my favorite places to visit. 
Beginning of April: awakening forests, 
fairytalelike mossy trees, 
serene countryside, 
majestic shoreline, 
vast beaches, 
breathtaking sunset 
and - thank you, people - no one single selfie stick! 
Oh, and no billboards too!

Siuslaw National Forest
Scenic and leisurely drive 

It could be Gorse plant that is blooming.

Thank you, Oregon! Now - home to Washington, to my garden.

  1. WOW! Just beautiful! Some photos reminded me of Switzerland.

    Thanks for sharing ~ FlowerLady

    1. Lorraine, how interesting! We thought about California. I guess, coastal areas everywhere have some similarities!

  2. Since we have a family cabin on the beach at Rockaway Beach, I know this area well. I enjoyed visiting through your photos.

  3. So many beautiful scenes, Tatyana! Full of life and motion and moss and loveliness. I'll have to remember the Stephanie Inn: what a wonderful place and location!

  4. Oh wow, brings back beautiful memories for us. We were lucky to get the chance last year to have a quick drive by, such a beautiful part of the world.

  5. Oregon coast is my favorite place to visit! Thank you Tatyana!

  6. Beautiful! Makes me want to jump in the car and go there instead of heading out for work today. Thanks for the virtual visit to the glorious Oregon coast!

  7. Hello Tatyana, the pictures are beautiful.
    What beautiful places!
    I looked at the pictures several times.
    Good weekend.

  8. очень профессиональные фотографии,хорошая работа,было приятно смотреть,спасибо,за Ваш труд

  9. Some beautiful photos! I love all the amazing moss on the trees there! And your photos make me want to go to the beach, though here it would be far too cold and nasty for it.

  10. Beautiful photos, Tatyana! I visited the northern Oregon coast a couple of times with my daughter, including Canon Beach. Such a gorgeous place!

  11. Beautiful photos, thank you !

  12. A feast for the eyes, Tatyana! Those moss trees could be in a fairytale, indeed. Love that coastal lighthouse, and the blue, blue waters. Would love to visit one day. P. x

  13. It’s a very, very green world where you live! And oh how I loved visiting the ocean vicariously through your post.

  14. What fun and a state I would love to explore one day!


Thank you for stopping by and for your comment! I appreciate your time! See you soon on your blog!
