I like these trees – they make me look much smaller.
Shrine – Drive-through-Tree
In the gift shop (loosely I call it that) they had pictures of other passer-by’s that had stopped for the same experience we had just taken. Some pictures dated back to the 30’s, 40’s, and 50’s. I would guess that with the onslaught of each new age of vehicle that they would have to carve a little more away from the opening. From the pictures on their walls you could tell that each new generation of car was larger, and larger. Poor tree – on display like that! Showing off all its wears, not able to keep any secrets.
Then on to the Oregon coast. As I had said in earlier entries, I found the Oregon coast just beautiful. These pictures just don’t do it justice.
The waves were immense. The sound reaching the beach was almost deafening.
And with this last one we bid the coast adieu. The beauty and splendour that is all around us is so important to take in.
I have another entry already started on my life and times since returning for holidays, but before posted it I thought I should finish up the tales I had started.
Thanks to all for you who had left kind notes. It brings me great pleasure to know that other people had enjoyed reading and viewing some of what I’d seen.
Cheers and blessings - LJ
