I LOVE THE OREGON COAST and my favorite part is the Central/Southern Oregon Coast including: Florence, North Bend, Coos Bay, Charleston and Bandon. The pace is slower, the people are friendly and the views are breathtaking!
For example, this picture was taken as I took a sunset walk on Bandon Beach, near Face Rock. The reflection of the sunset on the receding waves as well as the shadows of the birds wading in the water has made this a favorite and always brings out an Oh wow! From viewers. My boss even liked it so much he ordered a large print to have framed at his house!! Now that is a compliment.
In my home I have this as an 11×14 print in a blue frame, I must admit it looks great that way. It is a relaxing view that evokes memories of walks along the beach, the sound of the waves crashing and times of quiet reflection.. that is what I call a vacation! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you ever head down to the Bandon area and are looking for some suggestions on places to stay, let me know. I have a couple of motels to recommend, my favorite is right on the beach.
