“Three Sisters Jumping on the Bed”
The three of us sisters met and played at Otter Crest…at the beach on the Oregon coast last week! Three girls, no one else…We had warm weather to walk the beautiful beaches of Beverly Beach, Cobble Beach, Otter Rock, Newport, Yachats, Yaquinta Head Lighthouse, and the Devils Punchbowl. We enjoyed misty mornings, sunny afternoons, hiked majestic old growth forests and hugged a 500 year old tree (which looks like a hobbit tree!) We saw seals, sea lions, rocky lava beaches, white sandy beaches, chicken in the woods orange mushrooms, lighthouses and spouting whales. I took lots of little kid pictures for future paintings too! It was all so marvelous!
