June 21, 2010 Monday It Takes Your Breath Away!

JoAnne Morgan

The California and Oregon Coastlines honestly do “take your breath away!” Every turn in the road, each pass you travel over, and with each bend in the road you see stunning beaches, deep blue green waters, extreme forests, and magnificent sea and wildlife.

We’ve arrived at Sunset Bay State Park in Oregon - One of three State Parks along the Cape Arago Highway. The bay was named by Thomas Hirst, an early settler in Coos Bay. It was used by fishing boats and other shallow draft vessels as a harbor for protection against violent ocean storms.

One of the fun things we did today was to go where the sea lions draw together at Arago Point. They bark like dogs! The sound of hundreds of sea lions “barking” was just mind-blowing! They are gathered out in the ocean so no close up shots of the sea lions this time. See Photos Here

I hope the photos will capture the beauty, or perhaps you’ll get the “feel” of this extraordinary area of our United States. JM
