a different beach

Bullards Beach seems to go on forever….. it was a perfect day…. mild temperatures, very little wind…  it doesn’t get a whole lot better than that. It almost looks like you could reach up and touch the clouds.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh

A single hour can consist of thousands of different colors. Waxy yellows, cloud-spot blues. Murky darkness. In my line of work, I make it a point to notice them.”

    • We get very little of the tourist paraphernalia…. none at all on this particular beach since it’s part of a state park. About the closest thing I can think of that you might call tourist paraphernalia are the little towns here and there with their restaurants and gifts shops and motels or vacation rentals.

  1. a holiday for a dog running all over that for sure. I’m sure ours would love it as a change of pace from his desert. I can’t imagine how he might react to all the water! lol

  2. The first time we stepped onto Bullards Beach it was so windy it was like getting a facial from Mother Nature, all that sand flying through the air…quite exhilarating. 🙂 Love your photos and your quote by Thich Nhat Hanh.

    • I’ve encountered times like you describe. Not always the most pleasant time to be down on the sand. I think Bullards tends have more days like that because of its exposure. Coquille Point is more protected behind all those sea stacks, though it, too, can get pretty windy at times.

    • Thanks, Andrew. Hope you enjoy your day at the beach. Oddly enough you made me realize that this beach was not littered with driftwood like it normally is. I wonder if our recent storms had cleared the beach.
