|Rambling the Hobbit Trail|
I recently took a 3 day trip down the Oregon coast. This lovely path winds through the coastal forest and connects to the beach. I spent a couple of days making my way down the coast and stopping wherever I felt like it. Such a sense of freedom! So many great places to explore!

This is the grand Proposal Rock in Neskowin, Oregon. It is quite large, has a little forest on top, and is accessible at lower tides. I am completely enchanted by it. There is a trail leading to the top and I attempted to climb it but it was very steep and slippery (my Converse shoes were not the right choice for the attempt) so I only made it half way.

These fascinating rocks are actually the remains of a petrified forest.

Being the thrift store fanatic that I am, I stopped at
several along my way. This jolly fellow came
from the Humane Society thrift in Florence:
