Road Trip To The Lost Coast

This morning I finally finished editing the last photos from my Birthday Road Trip to the Lost Coast, last month!

Seeing these signs always freaks me out a little bit. I guess that’s the point, sort of, to be aware of where you are, and the potential danger. I could never live in an area that is a tsunami hazard zone. Visiting them briefly, and enjoying the magnificent scenery is more than sufficient to me.

I don’t mention it so often, but if you’re interested in prints of a photo that you see here on the blog, click on the photo and you’ll see available prints. (With the exception of family photos and iPhone snapshots, they are not for sale, they don’t have a link..) I use Fine Art America for printing/packaging/shipping, and you can safely use the shopping cart that you’ll see after choosing your print. They even have a money back guarantee. (I’m very happy with their service, could be good to know if you’re a photographer thinking about selling your prints. I’ve used them for a few years, and only had one return so far. They fixed it quickly and the customer remained happy.)

Mornings are my favorite time of the day. I took this photo during a hike, on the morning of my birthday. It was a great start of my day.

The Rock; huge rock outside Ferndale (CA.) The legend says that a Portuguese man lived in a cave inside the rock for several years, and that a local widow later joined him there, causing a huge scandal. You can only enter the cave from the ocean side. Very few people have actually been to the cave, but the locals claims that it exists.

Another shot from my birthday, with the rock (that has a cave inside,) in the background.

This is the very last photo from my Birthday Road Trip. This post is my entry to this week’s photo challenge Variations on a ThemeI hope you enjoyed the early morning hike, and the trip. Don’t you just love driving a sports car along the coast of California? I love when the wind catches my hair, and the cool (almost cold..it is winter..) feeling in my face, as I devour the salty scents of the ocean. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

Love,

Ms Zen

    1. Thank you Margaret. Yes, it is. Just when you’re coming down the hills, if you’re coming from Ferndale. We stayed at a beautiful farm nearby, and the lady told us so many interesting stories.

Planning my next bucket list trip and hoping to travel Rt. 66 this year. Excited about the amazing view and photo opportunities.

    1. I did have an amazing time 🙂 Thank you! Yes, I immediately felt that I’d met a likeminded soul when finding your blog. Route 66 is amazing. Be sure to stop at all (or at least as many as possible..lol) whole in the wall cafe’s along the way. I did Route 66, during a cross country trip with my RV 2013. My daughter was a year old. It was an unforgettable experience, to say the least. Can’t wait to see you photos! Very nice meeting you Laura.
