Portland / Nehalem Bay, OR – July 12_14, 2012

Mt. Hood on the approach to Portland

Northeast

Southwest

Apparently, I was there during a rare period of good weather. It rains constantly for the majority of the year. You heard calls to “enjoy the sunshine” everywhere

The Relic

.

Looking North

Window shopping

2 birds

RRxing

Methadone clinic

.

One of many bridges connecting downtown to the East

Barrin’ Hills

Morning light

Matrices

Homeless were everywhere. After the police cracked down on meth abuse in the late 90′s, heroin started flooding the market. One of the locals told me that over 3/4 of the homeless are addicts.

The Rose City

These bubblers were everywhere

Rise

Shine

.

MORNin’

.

.

Heavy metal

Oldport

Well preserved

Caught napping

Caught shooting

.

New greets old

Dude seemed upset that the guy gave him only change

.

Tillamook State Forest

.

The freshest clams I’ve ever had

The tracks went all the way north and followed the 101

Gull Rules

Shack with a view

When you were done with your clams, oysters or crab, you just threw the shells back to where they came from

Nehalem

The biggest beach I’ve ever seen

Surflight

.

You needed to watch yourself whilst wading in the frigid surf, sea wasps were always creeping

The most patient dog I’ve ever seen. He would lay until his master threw the frisbee.. and never missed a catch.

Seaberries

Broken Pines

The cove

Dinotraxx

.

Sandkrab

.

Tracking

Seadogs

People on the beach let these fire lanterns go. They flew in the air for quite some time before going out. It totally added to the surreal moonscape of the beach.

Local Catter

Goonie rocks outside Garibaldi
