Autumn arrives with everything pumpkin spice, and leaves turning red, orange, and yellow. After a weekend at the coast with my husband, I feel refreshed; first get away in a long while. We walked surfside on the sand, with fresh air and listening to the roar of the ocean. Kingfishers, herons, and ducks captured our attention at a local estuary. How fortunate to live in Oregon with so much to explore outdoors.
