The Dungeness Crab Graves of Florence

I stopped in Florence, OR for several hours before deciding to work inland. The sand on the beach of the north jetty was ever bit as soft and inviting as that of Southern California beaches. But it was untouched! Bill and I shared a three mile stretch of beach with a women’s book club and that was it!

ON a completely empty beach there was more to look at than you would regularly imagine. And the piece that stood out to me most were the thousands of Dungeness Crab skeletons that found themselves dried up on the beach. It was unlike any other beach I had ever walked before.

Up the Coast

At the end of September I took a jaunt across California and up the Oregon Coast. I originally set out thinking I would take tons of photos but ended up only capturing a few. As it turned out, I spent most of my time taking in the phenomenal ocean views instead of staring at the settings on my camera. It was a refreshing trip, lasting me three days and 1,400 miles.

In this digital age I find my self constantly relying on the faithful old iPhone to get me places. But on this trip I decided to buy a book to help me find worthwhile camp sites. I bought a book from Moon which I would highly recommend to anybody looking to camp in Oregon anytime soon.

I also shot film for the first time and I’m looking forward to developing and sharing some of that as well. For now, here’s a few of what I’ve got.
