Saturday Snapshot - August 3

To participate in Saturday Snapshot: post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky below. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

The last entry of our first camping trip (don't worry...we're going camping again in a couple of weeks and I'll have more pictures!)

Our last day camping started out foggy and overcast.  As that is really the norm for the Oregon coast, I can't say we were disappointed.  The real treat, however, was that when we hit the beach that morning, the tide was out as far as it would go, giving us an entirely new coastline to explore.

This guy was just hanging out on the beach!




We finally found a sea star to show the kids!

And a hermit crab!

  7. Wow, what a great trip to the beach. There are usually so many people around when we're at the beach that we don't get to see much nature.

  14. Awesome photos! My husband and I have seen starfish, but only slipping away under rocks. As for the crabs, we've found skeletons but not alive crabs at the coast. Your camping trip seems as if it were a memorable experience.
