The Sixes River, Oregon
Looking southwest, the clouds were amazing though they seemed to dissipate as we got closer to the ocean.
Looking toward the ocean (west? where the rock juts up) from the where we launched the kayaks.
An old stump disguised as a rock in the middle of the river.
Looking south as we approached the mouth of the river. You can just make out the Cape Blanco Lighthouse near the left edge.
A nice spot for a picnic. We pulled ashore for a bite and a bit of a breather. This was where we turned around because the channel to the ocean narrowed and the current was stronger than either of us wanted to deal with (that goes double for me!)
Heading back up the river from the sandbar where we stopped. It seems as though the lovely clouds develop as they come ashore. Out to sea they weren’t nearly as impressive.
You swam in a river of chance and coincidence. You clung to the happiest accidents—the rest you let float by.
