Yachats, Oregon

The great trees cover the land.  The Pacific Ocean washes on the shore.  The sky is ever-present, sunny or cloudy, over the trees and the ocean.  The birds are everywhere: crows or seagulls. The people are like people everywhere, but also more friendly, more at home for anybody’s tricks or foibles.  Their politics are, as usual, a mess.  But they have been gay-friendly since the last century.  They have a Fourth of July parade, called the LaDeeDah, and they plan a year ahead what they as a group will represent: the Bill of Rights, the Constitution.  They have a flower show, which also takes a year or more to plan.  Its a place like anyplace, but only more so.  My wife and I have piece of land there, and hopefully we will build a house.  My friends Ben and Kathee live in Yachats.  That makes it home.  These are some photos and sketches from Yachats.
