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 ( :

Beautiful pictures.This may not be as soft as hay,but I can see that it has the shape of a haystack.

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!

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.

How come we have not heard much about the gas leak in Alabama recently ... it did affect us while traveling home through Nashville ...scared the pooh out of me ...
