We spent a wonderful, relaxing weekend camping at the Oregon Coast. "Camping" is a relative term - we have a travel trailer so we camp in great comfort. The trailer is especially important in Oregon, where it rains. A lot. Over the years of living here we've progressed from tent to tent trailer to travel trailer, and have extended the time of year we are able to all seasons.
This weekend we had a rainy Friday night and Sunday morning, but a gorgeous day on Saturday. It was an enjoyable day of walking on the beach and then visiting Florence, a cute little town on the coast. I captured the remaining piers of Florence's former ferry landing, inspired by this week's Picture Inspiration prompt, "long and tall."
But that's the not the big news - I'm coming to Chicago this week! It's a last minute work trip, planned Friday afternoon. There was a need for someone with my background to go and recruit at a conference, and I've never been to Chicago. After several months back from Italy with no travel plans in sight, I'm ready to visit someplace new and jumped on the chance.
If you are in the Chicago area and would like to meet up in downtown Chicago for a coffee and a photowalk this week, contact me via email: kat [at] kateyestudio [dot] com. I'll be in town Wednesday through Saturday and will be squeezing in sightseeing with my camera as much as possible. I hope to meet a few of you there!
