The small dark spot in the water is a Sea Lion head poking up for air...they swam close to shore as Sophie and I looked for agates and other treasures...there were several out in this little bay...I was almost tempted to jump in with them....

Your pictures make me long for the ocean. So beautiful.

You found some amazing treasures! Love those beautiful agates. What do you do with all these treasures? You must have an incredible collection!

This looks like such a wonderful time! Oregon is one of my top "wish list" places to live, and this post just pushed it a bit higher!
