A muted, but lovely sunset at Bandon beach

A muted, but lovely sunset at Bandon beach

I know I said my last post was my last one in Bandon, but it’s just been so darn nice I couldn’t help taking a few more pics. So, this is the last one…really it is. Between then and now I’ve managed another sunset shoot with Gunta (no where near as exciting as “The Perfect Sunset” from last week, but lovely nonetheless) and several more long, lonely walks on the beach w/ hubby and pooch. Everyday here is slightly different and it’s that very thing which inspires me to keep clicking away. The rocks never change, but the sea & beach are ever-moving and that’s what sets the coast alive and makes it so special. Resistance, my friends, is futile.

By the way for all you lighthouse nuts out there (and I count myself amongst you) I’ve been recommended to read The Light Between Oceans about 50 times, so I’m going to download it and will likely finish it next week. By all accounts it’s a real heart-string tugger which I think will fit in perfectly with desolate Cape Blanco…the right novel for the right place, if you will. Also, for you fermenting RVers you’ll be ecstatic to know that we are already overflowing with Kefir. I bought a teaspoon of the stuff from amazon (THIS link ) and it’s been producing like crazy. Don’t know if it’s the extra-moist weather or slight uptick in temps, but those grains are going wild. Who says nothing exciting ever happens in an RV :)That’s really it from here…really it is. Only a few days to go and we’ll be off. We’ve checked the batteries, lubed the jacks and we’re ready to go. Wheels away, baby! See ya at the next spot.

Ready to run, Polly?

    Love, the Paul and Polly image – beautiful and way too cute the way they are looking at each other! As the sun sets on Bandon safe travels to the Cape! Thanks for always sharing your beautiful photos.

    It might take longer to get over Bandon.

      Indeed it might. This is our 2nd year here and we love it as much as ever. We’ll only be 30 miles away so still within short driving distance, but it won’t be quite as convenient as here in Bullards where we’re just across the bridge.

  7. Gunta says:

    Will miss having you so close. It’s been fun visiting with you!

  8. My sisters loves and swears by those Kefir and they even brought it to Phil.!
    Anyhow, I thought for a moment you have changed your blog name to Wherling It, but it looks like you havent. I guessed you must have three pen names :)

  9. The wave photo…love that one. And you are so right about “the rocks never change, but (everything) else does…” There are those certain places, whether it’s the ocean, mountains, or Grand Canyon, where mood changes according to light and weather and No two same photos are alike. It gives the illusion of traveling when one is stationary; always a new feast for the eyes. It saves a lot of gas, and still scratches that “itch.”

  11. Charlotte says:

    Never get enough of your beach pictures! Just finished The Light Between Oceans. Hope you enjoy it. I did. Safe travels.

    • libertatemamo says:

      Downloaded it and started it last night (I was too impatient to wait). So far so good. It’s a wonderfully written story.

  12. Hanna says:
