Picture a Day #15-Crossing a Continent

It was great to spend time along the Oregon coast after our long trip across the country. We enjoyed two days of clear weather, and our last night of camping. This is the lighthouse at Heceta Head, near Florence. We camped north of here, within walking distance of the beach at Washburne State Park, where we searched for agates.

That night I consumed my last s’more of our trip. It was delicious. I had never put caramels in them before that summer, but I highly recommend the practice, which was shared with me by my friend’s daughter during our visit to New Hampshire.

First you toast the marshmallow on a stick over a fire. Then you put a caramel on the end of the stick, and pull the marshmallow off in between two graham crackers, pulling the caramel inside the marshmallow. Tasty!

Early the next morning we drove north, even though my spouse pointed out that it was the wrong direction, to check out the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center. Then we headed south toward California, stopping to peak into this tide pool at Bob Creek.
