An Oregon Waterfall and Starfish

 I am linking up with Fiona's Green Day and Tricia's  Watery Wednesday II and Gemma's  Scenic Weekend 



Foggy scenes on the Oregon coastline can be the norm.



A walk down the foggy beach leds us to this waterfall, a beautiful sight to see along the Oregon coastline.


 Above is one of my favorite Oregon coast photos, I was able to include a purple starfish along with the waterfall.


I was amazed at all the starfish and the green anemone were a cool sight to see.


I couldn't decide whether I liked the purple or the orange Starfish. I believe they can also be called sea-stars. Even their names sound cute.



Not far from the waterfall were a couple of little sea caves. You would not want to be there when the tide is high.


It was a little hike back to the parking lot and our car. The trail took you over the bridge and thru this gorgeous forest.


Not sure how deep these roots are but I would not want to be around when this tall tree falls.


You can not get lost here, the signs on the trail were pretty clear. I loved the green forest of the Pacific Northwest. The trails are just lush, you want to linger and check out every little thing.

I hope you enjoyed my hike thru the forest to the beach. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the nice comments. To see more watery shots please visit Watery Wednesday and for more of the green check out Fiona's Green Day and for your scenic shots please visit Gemma's Scenic Weekends. I hope to see you there!

Thanks to Tricia the host of Watery Wednesday II  and to Fiona for hosting Green Day  and to Gemma for hosting Scenic Weekends.  I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.

  9. Those are really unique scenes, i love the rainfall and the forest with long bridge, but i am a little scared of the very big starfishes. However, the sea looks so very clean and idyllic.
