What a fantastic trip we had to OREGON with our kids,
in October.
I'm joining and supporting
with photos from our awesome trip.
water flowing into 

...then it flows back into the magical  ocean...
I can't explain the feeling I had, standing up high, seeing the fury of the waves
rushing into the CHURN...
the spray on my face...
the sounds of water beating against the rocks...
feeling very, VERY close to God . 

 The SeaGull was so tame...
people fed them on this ledge .......
Stacy didn't have anything we thought safe to feed this one....

As I am counting this rock SEA WALL as a FENCE,
I'll be joining TEX for GOOD FENCES THURSDAY


 ...we're on our way to the GIANT REDWOODS...
so excited....

Love and peace
to all....
xoxo, bj


  1. SO!!! Is this the son that had that gorgeous RV I drooled over a few years ago??
    What a wonderful trip and beautiful scenery! Loved every photo!!!

  2. Some wonderful snaps here. It looks like you had a lovely comfortable trip if that is your campervan in the background.


  3. bj, I went to Portland for the first time in July and loved the northwest.

  4. We all need to see more of our beautiful country. Remember the add from our youth... See the USA in your Chevrolet...

  5. Impressive sights like those are what I call "How Great Thou Art" moments. I cannot imagine the sound and spray and sheer POWER of that great force---another awesome bit of our beautiful world I'd never heard of, yet it goes on through the ages and eons, surges and recedes, pounds and foams, without the least help or notice from little us.

    Hope you and yours are having a wonderful Thanksgiving season!


  6. We stand in awe seeing the awesome creation of God! I am trying to imagine the water rushing into the churn and feeling the water spray on my face too. What a wonderful trip as a family.

  7. Lovely vacation snaps!! Keep them coming.

    God bless.

  8. What a beautiful water spot...just needed a video to hear the rush of the water! ;-)

  9. That had to be spectacular for the photo sure is! Thank you for the wonderful description that made it all so very real. My face is tingly...I can almost feel the spray!

  10. Gods creations are wonderful to behold. The northwest states are just beautiful and I know you enjoyed your trip. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  11. I would love to see that Devil's Churn!!! I can almost feel the excitement of it, just reading here, and looking at pictures! :-)

    Hugs, Tessa

  12. BJ, great photos. That would have to be a wonderful feeling standing there looking out at sea. Yes, we need to think of the people of France...they do need our prayers. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  14. BJ, you made me feel like I was there with you! Beautiful photos! Blessings, Pam (

  15. Your photos are terrific. I especially love the birds! So glad you had a wonderful time!

  16. Glad you are having a wonderful time. On the road again....I can hardly wait to see photos next week. Can understand how you felt looking at the water going back into the ocean, been there, done that, always want that feeling again, and again and again. One with the universe!

  17. I've never seen the giant Redwoods, so I will delight in your photo captures of your trip, Love your photography BJ, sending love your way.

  18. Beautiful shots from the Oregon coast!

  19. Wow...I have never been there...and have never heard of the churn! Very interesting. I have been to one of the 2 tidal bores and that was surreal! beautiful pics!

  20. What fun you are having. Oregon is my dream state ~ especially the Oregon coast. My very favorite spot is Bandon by the Sea. Bandon Dunes golf course is there so David can play gold to his heart's content and I can walk up and down the beach for hours. Bentley loves it too!

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  21. I love Oregon. I think the coast is some of the prettiest country in the USA. I am so glad your travels were/are so much fun, bj. It is wonderful that you have family to travel with, too. xo Diana ps. GREAT pictures!!!!

    Our son works in Oregon and he lives in Tenn. He is moving to Oregon as soon as he sells his home. He and his wife love Oregon so much. We have visited Portland and went up to Mt. Hood. Fabulous.

    Love, Jeanne

  24. We live next door to Oregon in Washington State and probably should make it a point to visit our neighbor to the south more often. Loved the photos of the sea gulls!

  25. Sweet "tripping" it was with the family!
    A memory maker!

  26. BJ, how fun! This is the first time I've heard of the Devil's Churn. It's going on my Must-See list for when I visit Oregon someday. Sounds like such a fun trip!
