As noted, the “coasting” series isn’t going chronologically! Herewith the entry from the southernmost point of my current Pacific-coast explorations: Oceanside. This town is known for a few things: its pier, above; and its proximity to large marine base, which means a large population of young and hungry individuals, hence a very high prevalence of pizza joints in town … see just a few random examples encountered on my walks, below 🙂

Fair Warning: our coasting series has accumulated a serious backlog of photos taken during recent journeys. Today, we show you the northern terminus of these coastal explorations from Bandon, in Oregon. Soon enough, we’ll be showing you the southernmnost terminus of these current coastal explorations, in Oceanside, CA. So check the name of of the photo, or the “category” and “tag” at the bottom of the post if you want to know what you’re looking at. But above all…enjoy 🙂

We begin a new series today – images I’ve started collecting along the shores of the Pacific here on the west coast of North America. I expect to leave these shores for a distant continent around July, for a quite extended period…so we begin now my own loving homage to an ocean and a coastline I truly love. Watch the categories and tags, because I’ll be moving around with this series.

This intro photo is from the mouth of the Coquille River on the lovely coastline of Oregon, the next state north of California. For those unfamiliar with the distances involved, that means from my current perch in the north bay, it’s “only” 400 miles or a 7-1/2 hour drive away…
