Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Thanksgiving Escape Photos

We left the beach behind this morning, but returned with great memories and many photos of our Thanksgiving Escape.  These are taken from Sebastian Cape off Hwy 101
just south of Gold Beach.
 At the mouth of the Rogue River and on the North Jetty looking across to Gold beach city we found this miniature village set for feral cats. Locals built shelter for them and bring them food & fresh water. To our surprise they are also housing a family of racoons. What do you  think about that?

We also visited a cool lighthouse and the Hughes homestead I will post another time. We thoroughly enjoyed our time away, but it is always nice to be Home.

Thanksgiving at the Beach

We are going to spend Thanksgiving at Gold Beach  on the Oregon coast, this year, I am taking along a small turkey and all the trimmings. The Weather will be stormy but  we will have a nice fireplace & hot tub for warming up. I have  a long list of things to do to get ready and a few projects to take along. I am sure the three nights here will be fabulous. I will be posting  more pictures when we return. Buster is going with us as the cottage is a pet friendly. Happy Thanksgiving to you all..
