Boiler Bay, Oregon Coast

After the annual Judicial Conference at Salishan on the Oregon coast south of Lincoln City, Meg and I drove a few miles down the coast to Boiler Bay, an overlook that provides spectacular views of the ocean’s power. I took these pictures from inside the car, through my open window.  Even with the car’s protection, rain still blew in over me and the camera.  Nonetheless, the waves were an endless source of drama and excitement.  It was difficult to leave and return to “ordinary” scenery of fall leaves as we traveled east across the coast range to home.

I have two pictures of gulls in the storm, with two different backdrops.  We are always astounded to see how these creatures manage to find calm spots in the storm.

Things of eternity

“Use the things of the world, but long for the things of eternity.  You cannot be fully satisfied by material possessions, for you are simply not made to gain ultimate happiness from them”  Thomas a Kempis

I need to remember always that life is eternal, and the “trinkets” I earn or desire are transitory.
