Sharing the beauty of our world




The Mary D. Hume, built in 1881, served 97 years, winning the title of longest serving vessel in the Pacific, a record that still stands today.  Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, she quietly lives out her life in the harbor at Gold Beach, Oregon, not far from where she was built.


Growing at an elevation of 8,000 feet, a gnarled and weathered tree clings to a patch of land 2,000 feet above Crater Lake. Silhouetted against the cloud is a dragonfly…they were everywhere!

A lone hiker, unfazed by the dangers of a steep, vertical plunge, stepped out for a closeup view from the rim of Crater Lake.


Cannon Beach, on the north coast of Oregon, is known for the large rocks scattered off the shore.


As spring turns to summer, bright yellow Dandelions transform into fluffy balls of seeds.

These will always be California Poppies…even when they bloom in Oregon.

As we ate lunch, perched on a picnic table half buried among the spring grass, I couldn’t help but notice the bright red spot of a ladybug.

Fierce winds blowing across the sand create sculptures on a sandy Oregon beach.
