Take A Journey Over Here..

Although my blog has moved over to this space, part of it still resides over here where you can learn about Sea Nymphs, Comb Jellies and other wonders in the Salish Sea!

Welcome, Springtime Low Tides

Each breaking wave, each rush of the sea on the slope of sand, reminds me why these places of pilgrimage matter. They matter to me because in the long view, I do not. I am driftwood. I am rockweed. I am osprey and the mackerel in the clutch of her feet. I am a woman standing on the edge of the continent looking out.

Oregon Coast

We manage to make at least one trip a year to the Oregon coast and it never disappoints. Springtime visits are my favorite. You never know what the late winter storms will have churned up on the beach. The weather is often unpredictable but we seem to always manage at least a bit of sun here and there in between the wind and the rain (and sometimes hail).
