I first started to title this post “Fall at the Oregon Coast”. However, since I am a bike rider, where falls do occur, and my mom reads the blog (and worries) I decided to title it AUTUMN at the Oregon Coast.
OK, on to the post!
Most people visit here in the summer when the sun is warm, the water, although cold, is calm, and there is a good chance of no rain.
The roads around here start getting busy in May. Then from Memorial Day to Labor Day, the coast, especially on weekends, is hopping! We DO have traffic jams, and miles long back ups!
I can’t fault folks, it is VERY pretty down here during that time of year. However, these last couple of weeks are reminding me why I am finding
Fall I mean Autumn, to be my favorite time of year at the coast!

I keep waiting for it to happen. Sooner or later, someone who follows this blog is going to say. “Dammit! Enough is enough! I am tired of ‘I love living on the Oregon Coast posts!!!’ ” Well, reader beware, here comes another one…. Continue reading “Yes, yes indeed I belong here”
Ok, before I jump into the new post I gotta tell you what JUST happened!
I am on the back porch, sipping wine and looking at the photos I took at the beach, when I hear a noise. I look up and there go two deer, a doe and a buck, bouncing (I am told it is called pronking) right through the back yard in front of me! I had no chance to get a camera. I just watched with my mouth open! I LOVE my back yard!
Ok on to the post! Continue reading “Yes sir! That is just the rock I needed!”
Wow, I have NOT been a good blogger. I just saw it has been almost a month since the last post. Remember when I posted every day?
Well, a lot has gone on, including a week-long vacation since the last post. I will see about getting things caught up. However, one of the biggest things that occurred was Michelle and I had our 1st Beachaversary. Yep, March 23rd, 2019 marks the one year mark that we moved into our new house at the coast.
Sadly, on the actual Beachaversary, I was sick, so Michelle and I couldn’t go out to celebrate. We will soon though!
I started thinking on my ride this weekend, I have seen a LOT of things on the bike since I got here, So here we go, a year of riding at the coast. Continue reading “A year of cycling at the coast”
I know a lot of people who truly are NOT fans of winter! There is cold, there is snow and a whole lotta dark. Of the three, the only part I ever used to get tired of was the dark. In December and January, I would leave in the dark for work, and there were days I would leave work and it was dark again already.
Here at the coast, and working from home, this is NOT an issue. I always get home before dark. Plus, this winter has not been normal! Most of January looked like this
With lots of blue sky and sunshine, but it was still winter…. Continue reading “Spring is coming!”
Ever heard the old saying, “There is no such thing as a free lunch?”
People usually say it when someone talks about getting something for free. As in, “You know junior, there is no such thing as a free lunch! Someone, somewhere is paying for that! you just don’t know it!!”
Well ladies and gents, I had an amazing last few days, and sure as hell, all the fun stuff was free! It started me thinking, a lot of the coolest things to do at the ocean really are free! … Continue reading “Free fun!!”
I have been sharing the weather we’ve been having over the last week or so. After a November of dry and sun, Mother Nature is making up for taking it easy on us earlier in the season.
This morning was no exception…..
