Sandy Cliffs and Teacup Rock - Skywatch Friday
On our 27th Anniversary over a year ago, we visited one of our favorite places in the world--Pacific City on the Oregon Coast. It is an incredibly beautiful place where the Dory boats blast toward shore, slip sliding onto the beaches. Surfers gracefully dance along on the curl of emerald waves. Steep cliffs stalk the edge of the cove--vanishing into a huge sand dune. People fly down the side of that gigantic dune on sand boards. Brave souls. One can look out at Teacup Rock. I have caught some wonderful photos of that huge rock reflected in retreating ocean waves. It is magical.
My husband and I love to hike up to the top of these sand cliffs. As you can see they are beautiful, yet dangerous, so you have to be very careful to stay away from the edges. The sand cliffs can crumble away at a moment's notice. I like the smooth look of those cliffs. Recently we watched two grey whales frolicking in the sudsy waves at the base of them.
Pacific City, with its eclectic shops, unusual restaurants, spectacular Teacup Rock, gorgeous beaches, wonderful sunsets, fabulous cliffs, amazing surfing and dory boats, is a perfectly wonderful place to visit!
Have a lovely week, everyone!
