Josh and I could not have asked for a more beautiful and peaceful and enjoyable two days at the coast.
It was a very welcome 2-night stay at the YURT in one of our favorite and super convenient places on the coast, close to Portland: Nehalem Bay State Park.
We arrived the evening of Monday October 18th 2010, set up camp in the YURT, cracked open a bottle of wine and walked to the water, knowing full well that the sun was about to set and that we would be cuddled up on the sand quietly relaxing watching nature's show.
Little did we know that the sunset was going to be THIS gorgeous!
There were maybe 6 other people and their dogs within a two0mile stretch of beach.
It was quiet, slightly breezy and the more the sun set, the more kaleidoscopic the colors in the sky became. Even if Josh and I intended to be there to take a much needed break from photography, we couldn't help ourselves to take our camera with us and to photograph the beauty around us.
Here are some photos of that night.
