Is Spring Finally Here?

Spring is trying really hard to come to the Oregon coast. After off and on days of rain, it finally broke this afternoon and allowed a moment’s respite amidst the stunning scenery of forest and large waves. I marveled at peeks of awakening life after winter: vivid blooms and fat robins on their merry way seeking the sounds of earth-bound worms under their feet, paying no heed to my camera.

Streamside ferns danced in the wind as I walked through the picnic area with long abandoned tables that obviously had not seen anyone eating off their moss-laden slabs in quite some time. The deep green grass was calling for the sounds of children’s laughter and footsteps but that will have to wait for warmer days. It’s just enough to see the sun this afternoon.
