Oh Oregon. Your weather is so ironic sometimes.

Our weather here in Oregon has been nothing but hot, sunny days for about a month and a half now. Back in the spring, my mom, grandma, and I planned a 4 generation trip (to include my son) to Lincoln City, Oregon, to visit the coast. We have been waiting patiently for mid-August

Last Wednesday, the long awaited trip day arrived, and so did the clouds and rain. It started raining about 30 minutes after we rolled into Lincoln City, and didn't really stop misting at the very least until late the next day, once we had arrived home.

Despite the weather, we had a nice time, and still managed to go out and play in the sand with my son, as well as stop at Yaquina Bay Lighthouse for some sightseeing.

  1. What a GREAT Capture!

  2. Ah, memories.
    Many a vacation to the Oregon Coast of ours had the same results. We always made the best of it and had a great family time anyway.
    Except for one time when we just got washed out of our tent. Talk about a gully-washer.
    Threw everything in the car, drove home to San Francisco, unloaded the car, repacked with summer things and headed for Disneyland! Crazy in the younger years but had a very special vacation.

  3. Nice picture of the sea and the lighthouse!! Sad the rains tried to play spoil sport!!

  4. Your lighthouse image is MUCH prettier than the one photo I shared of our lighthouse today!!

    Fog is my favorite weather.

  5. Beautiful photo of the lighthouse surrounded by the mist. - I love the Oregon coast. My niece is getting married (on the beach) in Lincoln City in September. I'm hoping it doesn't rain.

  6. Love your photographs. They tell stories.

  7. Ah, the weather FOOLING with you!

  10. Lovely Scene!
    Have a wonderful day!

  11. Great shot! The coast can be so annoying many times I left Portland on hot summer day, just to be greeted by the fog on the coast range.

  12. We were on Oregon's central coast last week too-brilliant sun and warm on Tuesday and then...
    But the coast is beautiful, no matter the weather -- and I do LOVE foggy photos of it:)
    Blessings, Aimee

  13. I love lighthouses!! Great moody shot.

  14. What a beautiful photo. The misty weather was kind to your subject...

  15. Beautiful shot!!! Captures the drama of the ocean, and the serenity of the fog!!!

  16. This photo reminds me of Cornwall and the mysterious shipwrecking community of the coastal villages. Nobody knew exactly who the leader was of the shipwreckers near Jamaica Inn.( Daphne duMaurier)
    Thanks! Have a great day.

  17. My son took a short trip to Portland a couple of months ago on a whim and it rained the entire time.

    Sorry about the weather, but the photo is amazing.

  18. Oh dear... It looks beautiful even with the fog, but you want sunshine on a vacation.... Michelle

  19. Great post. Love all the parts of Oregon I've been able to visit since moving here in 2006.


I appreciate everyone that stops by to check out the Mt Hood to Portland, Oregon area through my photos ... Have a wonderful day!
