Gearhart Beach

Gearhart Beach

I’ve been so busy writing about the cottage that I guess I forgot to mention our beautiful beach and coastline!  What was I thinking?  This is the best part! This is why we are here!  This is where all the magic happens!

So… here for your viewing enjoyment…. is a peek at what happens on the western edge of our neighborhood on a sunny summer day when everybody has come out to play because….

“IT’S A BEACH DAY!!”

And of course we have kids and boogie boards and seagulls….

Then there are those guys with a beach buggy and a cooler full of cold ones!

At some point you need to go for a walk and look for sand dollars….

And go jump some waves…

And hang out in a pool of cool water with a friend while the tide goes out ….

And what is a beach without a dog looking for feathers to chase?

(Okay, our dog is a little weird.)

Then the sun starts to get a bit lower in the sky….

And the western sky starts to turn pink….

Out come the sweatshirts and it’s time to build a bonfire….
