Weirs Beach for Watery Wednesday




Today I am putting in my photo for the first time for Watery Wednesday ...I am new to this one so look forward to visiting you all. Check out all the watery photos at the Watery Wednesday site hosted by 2sweetnsaxy.

This photo is of Weirs Beach, taken on a windy day when the waves were crashing but the sky was blue so it was great for photos. The beach is normally bare and white sand but this day the storm had deposited large amounts of kelp and driftwood. In the distance you can see the city.

  3. Impressive shot. The colors are very enticing yet not overly vivid. The splintered wood is very interesting, and the pieces form their own shapes.

  4. I'm glad you joined, this is a great little beach, perfect for beach-combing ... you would never run out of driftwood for the fire place or a BBQ on the beach. Just lovely.

  29. What a beautiful beach. Where is this located? The landscape looks very similar to S. Oregon's beaches. This is my first Watery Wednesday too. Great photo choice! ;)

  30. Must of been quite a nasty storm to deposit all that driftwood on the shore, Here people would go to the beach to collect the free fire wood; or at least I would!

  31. What memories this picture invokes. Our family used to spend every summer camping at Weirs Beach when I was a kid/teenager. Met my first love here, met friends I am still in touch with after all these years. Got my first beesting on one of the rocks.
    I love the picture!! And especially all the wonderful memories seeing this brings back to me. I will have to go back and visit it on my next trip to the island.
    Welcome to Watery Wednesday too!
