Last weekend, I spent a couple of beautiful, stunningly clear and warm days happily exploring this fabulous bridge and the area around it. It’s a lovely bridge and I had a happy time searching for different views of it – from the North, from the South, walking across it, directly beneath it, through foliage…
Here are some of the views for you…
All right! I love this week’s photo challenge! I have wanderlust, and I have it bad. I’ve had it since childhood, when my parents would drive the three of us across the country in our camper from Kentucky to California each summer to visit my grown sisters and their families. I would spend the hours mesmerized by the changing landscape or playing navigator for my dad. Such wonderful memories!
These days I don’t have to travel far to satisfy my need to wander. As you know, if you follow this blog, trips to the Oregon Coast often provide the opportunity for solitary rambles and new discoveries.
However, for this week’s challenge, the first image that popped into my mind was the iconic PDX (Portland International Airport) carpet. Locals often take pics like these when leaving for new trips or when arriving home. The carpet was replaced a few years ago, but if you know where to wander, you can still find a section of the original pattern. This is the original design.

I love pictures of old stumps and pieces of wood; they hold such fascinating textures and multitudinous shades of brown, green, gold, gray. These are two of my favorites. I hope you enjoy them on this Earth Day!

For this week’s challenge, show us something that represents security. It could be your kids happily reading under their favorite throw blanket. It could be a roaring fire chasing away the last of winter’s cold. It could be a worry stone you keep in your pocket or that favorite tee shirt that makes you feel awesome every time you put it on.

Some time ago, I discovered these daisies along the trail at Salishan, on the Oregon Coast. The security comes in knowing that I will find them – or something like them – waiting for me every time I visit the coast. The Oregon Coast is awesome!

Shell Mountain at The Fish Peddler in Bay City, Oregon. It’s always an impressive sight when driving along the 101 on the Oregon Coast. I learned that the best shells are replanted and reseeded in the company’s oyster beds to provide for continued sustainability. Pretty remarkable!
Here’s a short news story on a similar process of recycling shells in Chesapeake Bay:
This week, share a photo of a satisfying pairing from your own life….You can mix and match places, people, objects, and activities that represent your idea of a harmonious, pleasing combination. ~Ben Huberman, The Daily Post
Bright leaf, beachy grasses, feathers, sand. I love how these found objects create a unified whole.
