Our goal with this adventure can be compared to a mathematical word problem. Did you ever have to do those in school? I was never very good at them. For some reason they were hard for me to sort out.
See if you can figure this one out:
If two people leave the east coast of the USA and travel west in an airplane going 520 miles per hour and two people leave the UK going the same speed at what time will they both arrive on the west coast of Oregon at the famous Haystack Rock?
I don’t know how to figure it out. All I know is that we met our dear friends, Lex and Elanor, she’s a fellow bear artist (an extraordinary one at that!) at the time we had previously arranged. What a terrific reunion and the beginning of the next leg of our trip to be spent together.
Our first exploration took us to Oswald West State Park – we hiked through the forest . . .
to the beach –even Sebastian came along.
We peeked into the tidal pools – the sea life was amazing.
The forest was amazing –
The views were amazing.
Even the rocks on the shore were pretty impressive – smoothed and weathered.
Jay stacked them and made a place for Sebastian to sit and watch.
So hello from Oswald West State Park to my family and all the readers here at bearbits.
