Hubby's photos at Okato Beach

On New Year's Eve, we took a ride to Okato to visit a beach that Hubby heard about.

These images were taken by Hubby, as he is much more able to navigate the rocks 
and more willing to get wet.

I love how the water just pops out of the sand to make these designs.

...beautiful black sand, but a few too many rocks for walking.

Always interesting to clamber about on seashore rocks - or have someone else to do it for you!

Neptune's necklace is a new one to me! How pretty!
Love the sand patterns too!

Love all these ...have never seen a Neptune’s necklace, and when I find a sea urchin it feels like a miracle...this one is perfect! Recently I blogged that we aren’t beach people, but I am talking about the touristy beaches like we see mostly here in Florida where it’s just mostly people lying around baking. I *love*the cooler Oregon Coast and climbing or walking around looking and exploring. like you and your hubby did here. That’s the kind of beach I like!

Lovely series of beach images. I'm always amazed by the sights and sounds of the coast.

Love the name 'Neptune's Necklace'. It really does look like a piece of jewellery fit for a god!
