Curry county


Perhaps a bit of why I’m moving down to the deep south of Oregon….


How could I resist?

    • My favorite section of the coast is from Port Orford to Brookings (the southern end). There are some great spots up north, but they tend to be more commercialized and populated. All of the above shots were taken along that last stretch of the coastal highway before you reach the California border. I’d be happy to help, or answer any questions if you email me at my about/contact page. In any case, I wish you happy travels in Oregon!

      • Thank you Gunta! You are absolutely right about the northern part. Everyone here’s telling me to go to Canon beach. But I’d like to go beyond it. I will research and email you if any questions. I am looking forward to our trip there.


  1. Truly spectacular scenes, captured beautifully. I especially like the last one with the trees in silhouette. And I really really really envy you being directly in the path of this year’s total eclipse. I hope you’ll give us a front row seat.


    • Light is one of those things where it’s the right time at the right place (at least when you’re depending solely on Momma Nature!) These past months it’s been quite a few trips up and down along the coast. It’s nice when I can catch that light.


  2. Wow, fantastic series of photos – perhaps the most beautiful coastline in the world right there. You’ve chosen well my friend. This place definitely sings a song only you can hear, and she also looks lovely in anything she wears. Enjoy the springtime!


    • I can’t claim to have seen them all, but Oregon gets my vote for most beautiful in the world. She does look lovely indeed whatever she wears! Wish springtime would hurry up and arrive. It seems to be way overdue this year.


  3. Spectacular photos here, Gunta. The shadowing in the last one, the tempestuous storm and fantastic lighting in the first two. Loved the Oscar Wilde quote too. Sounds like your moving has been progressing nicely, my friend — hang in there!


    • I think we’re FINALLY on the home stretch. 99% of the clutter has been cleared or corralled. Yesterday we tackled the floors (whoever dreamed up tile floors throughout was nuts! then again, the heated tiles have been nice during the winter storms) and I’m hoping to have the photos for the listing taken this week… then it’s going to be the constant search for missing items. Moving is such a bitch and showing a house while still living in it is worse. At least the last house we sold was empty and we didn’t live there!

      Picturing the house sold and us settled down south… hummmm! O_o


    • The wind can be downright annoying at times, but it does make for some nice surf. Thanks for the visit. Nice quote from Virginia Woolf you uncovered there! “[E]scape from here and now” a tempting concept at this particular time.


    • Hard to pick a favorite with so many great ones starting at Port Orford and heading south. I do believe that’s the best stretch of coastline in Oregon.
