Yachats

Such a strange name… I always want to say it to rhyme with hatchets, but… (pronounced YAH-hots)!

Yachats-1436

Where the Yachats river runs into the Pacific

Yachats-1437

The day driving down from the north was perfect. Lots of perfect clouds and mist, the wind was reasonably mild and it was relatively warm for summertime.

Yachats-1443

See if you can find the woman down on the rocks for scale. (Hint: she’s wearing turquoise colored clothes.)

Perhaps, after all, our best thoughts come when we are alone. It is good to listen, not to voices but to the wind blowing, to the brook running cool over polished stones, to bees drowsy with the weight of pollen. If we attend to the music of the earth, we reach serenity. And then, in some unexplained way, we share it with others.

  1. Another beautiful quote, by an author I don’t know and will have to check out.
    Gunta, the misty photos are just so, so perfectly done. Just beautiful, thank you – the peaceful spaciousness is reaching me!

    • The mist this time of year is also so, so perfect! The weather has been pretty cooperative, before things start to dry out for the summer. This next month is going to be absolutely wild while I try to get all the errands done up north and here in Coos Bay. I’m starting to spin my wheels…. whee!!! O_o

    • Thanks, Chilli… all is very well, but busy. WordPress has been on a back burner for me as well as we get ready to move, but it’s all in good fun.

    • So many Oregon place names are downright strange. I still like it to rhyme with hatchets! 😀 I bet you’ve got that guttural throat clearing ch sound down to a T! O_o

    • Somehow it doesn’t surprise me that you liked the quote! Thanks! I can’t seem to get enough of the coast, but today it was a hike through some old growth trees with two waterfalls for dessert (as opposed to desert?)

    • Thanks! We’ve had some sprinkles and loads of spectacular clouds, but not bad at all. Even saw a hint of a rainbow in the clouds today. Not especially gloomy down here… at least for now.
