Pacific Coast Photos

View Entire Category

My soul needs the ocean. I escape to the coast to smell the air and feel the salt breezes. Coming originally from England, a small country entirely surrounded by oceans, I regularly visit the coast for enjoyment and to renew my spirit. In the Pacific Northwest, where I now live, we do not speak of "going to the beach" as our southern neighbors do. We "go to the coast" and you will see why when you look at the images. Much of the Pacific Coast from the Golden Gate Bridge to British Columbia is very rugged with high cliffs and rocky beaches. It is generally cool in temperature, and often windy; not warm and balmy like the beaches you find further south or on tropical islands.

Dotted along Hwy 101 are some lovely picturesque towns that offer all sorts of reasons to visit them. Some of our favorites are Eureka, CA, Brookings, Bandon, Newport and Seaside, all in Oregon. Washington state offers tucked away harbors, the beautiful San Juan Islands and, of course, Seattle. People from all over travel up and down this coast enjoying natural scenic beauty from the redwoods to whale watching. Having once spent a great deal of time sailing, I enjoyed the chance to see the shoreline from the ocean. Now, again when I am flying, I see the views in reverse of the normal perspective and find it very rewarding and creatively inspiring.
