Linda and I travelled up the California and Oregon coast last weekend driving along Hwy 1. We started at Bodega Bay and ended up at Coos Bay, about 450 miles (about 750 kms). Hwy 1 is considered one of the most beautiful coastal highways and we were not disappointed.
Bodega Bay has always been a favorite of ours, but we had not ventured so far north as on this trip. We stayed at Bodega Dunes, Humbolt Redwoods and Harris Beach, which are all state parks. Driving along roads that wind through the most beautiful scenery, alternating between breathtaking views of the coast and the famous redwood groves along the coast made for a fantastic trip.
Lots of photography opportunities and sunsets, but also lots of places to enjoy some clam chowder and fish ‘n chips!
This photo was shot at Harris Beach in Oregon. Linda and I went for a stroll along the beach after scrambling down a little trail through the rocks. The tide was out and we came upon this pool of water with some driftwood which made for a perfect foreground subject. You can see from the surface of the water that there was no wind on what was a perfectly peaceful evening.
