Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, Oregon






I don't get why they call it "Haystack Rock", I have seen folks who pile up their hay like this, but to me it looks nothing of a haystack? Hay is nice and soft, this is a hard tough rock with lots of seagulls and seagull pooh on top. Just saying??! 


Please enjoy the video from that day. So windy, an overcast day, & all the amazing sea creatures we got to see, which was so fun. I did try to get up close with a few seagulls, but they were not having it!! Guess they don't like getting social with people unless you have food?! All I wanted was a good picture??! Is that too much to ask? Beth ( :

It does look like a Haystack..I think they are only talking about the shape?? Great pictures..
Looks fabulous, Beth. Tremendous photos. And I do think the rock looks like a traditional haystack - though I take your point about the slight difference in texture..! As for gulls, most of them over here aren't at all shy - in fact, they take no prisoners; I'd gladly cull them - vicious creatures!
I guess the shape looks like a haystack. I love watching the waves rolling in and the sea critters are fascinating.

Ahh, love this beach! I suppose back in the day they used to whack and stack hay then when the day was done they would leave the pitchfork stuck in the haystack. It is a great place to visit, we were there last spring and our two year old grandsons couldn't get enough of the sand. Glad you have the time to travel and enjoy yourselves!

Briery Creek Lake, Farmville, Virginia

Taking a break from our trips, to talk about a recent kayaking trip. We have had so much rain here in Virginia in the month of May. It has been so green. The funny thing is how the weather folks keep saying we are in a drought??! WHAT??! So on Monday May 9th, we took a day trip to "Briery Creek Lake", Farmville, VA. At this area there was a sign about "Trophy Largemouth Bass", so if you are fan, you might wanna check out. We are not fisherpeople, just love the kayaking experience. It was a gorgeous day! I was trying to get the picture of the osprey, the water was thinking otherwise, but I did ok... in the video below you will hear birdies, I did try to capture the osprey, but the silly bird stopped singing, it was such an interesting sound. chirp? tweet? Why does nature not working me with me, please?


Please enjoy this vlog of that day. Thanks, for stopping by, hope you enjoy the trip. Beth ( ;
