~A face of stone smiles from within~

 

A face of stone smiles from within,

just off shore for everyone to gaze upon,

when looking out to sea in this harsh climate,

her warmth reaches out in a loving caress.

 

She greets the rising sun and accepts her daily task,

to protect the creatures that seek refuge within her embrace,

she kisses the moon as the tides swell around her,

and wishes upon the stars that peace will come again tomorrow.

We enjoyed our nine days at Bullards Beach State Park in Bandon, Oregon (July 7-15)! We walked the mile and a quarter from our RV to the ocean everyday. We enjoyed searching for and eating at some of the local eateries, especially the Face Rock Creamery. Their cheese and curds are delicious and the ice cream they serve, from a local dairy, is wonderful! The best Fish and Chips can be had at the Bandon Fish Market.

Day trips in and around Bandon and birding in the area topped off our visit. I added five new birds to my life list. A visit from friends, traveling in their RV, spent a few days with us, which was truly a highlight of our time at – Bandon by the Sea!

 

Until next time…….
