    Pictures of the Oregon Coast.

    I posted a few pictures in my birthday thread, but I had to share more from my trip to the coast. This place is so pretty!


    A panorama of most of the beach.







    Anyone know what this is?




    Starfish!




    The gulls were very cooperative.


    I have a lot more pictures up on my Facebook page! I am so glad I can share this wonderful area with all of you.

    No idea what that one is:



    some kind of mollusk maybe? Was it hard, squishy, did you touch it at all?

    Wow these photos are LOVELY! I loved all of them and it looks like a nice trip. I loved all of them and I hope you had a great birthday.

    As for the mullosk, looks like some kind of well - mullosk - in a whelk shell. It could be a sea roach of some sort but they usually don't have shells.

    I think that a little hermit crab...could be wrong though...

    I love the northern california/Oregon coast, my absolute favorite place in the world, thanks for sharing your pics.

Size:  68.1 KB<---Did a quick search for mollusks of the Oregon Coast and got a hit on the second link. I then did an image search and sure enough...it's called a gooseneck barnacle. They spend their life attached to rocks and tend to live in clusters together with mussels.

    Ah, so I was completely off! :P Thanks for finding out, Michelle. I was getting very curious as to what he was last night. And now that I look closer at it there is not really a shell at all.

    Thank you, kittycats_delight for finding out what the little guy is! Thank you all for the complements! I've lived in Oregon for almost 4 years and had never gone to the coast, at least not as an adult. When I was a kid, my parents took a road trip to Seattle and we stopped at a beach in Oregon. I remembered that it was very pretty and that I felt at peace there. I always wanted to go back but until now, never had the opportunity. I find it especially neat that my first trip back was on my 30th birthday. I am for sure figuring out a way to go back when the weather is a bit warmer so I can get some swimming time in!
