Rene's Moly - on and on around the world

sooooooooooooooooooo. Inspiration came hard for me on this one. Something local, something I love.....I was stumped. I mean, ideas did pop into my head but nothing stuck, nothing made me want to jump into the book and go for it. Time passed. Passed some more.

Then I went back home to southern Oregon to attend my sister's wedding. No, I am not from North Dakota :-) Nearly everyday I visited Harris Beach. Its an easy place to go. Beautiful. Spent loads of time there during my childhood. Body surfing under my Grandma Hoagland's watchful eyes. I surfed there with my friends as a teenager. I played in the surf at the ripe old age of 39 this summer. I even worked for the State Park Station there one summer. I haven't a clue how much time I've spent there...and I return there EVERY time I go home. I know that Rene wanted us to avoid "touristy" places but this is not a touristy place for me. It is a sanctuary for me. Its a place to laugh, a place to play, a place to be quiet, a place to me.

If any of you find yourselves cruising down Highway 101 in southern Oregon, stop by Harris Beach. You will NOT be disappointed.

Now, onto Ian!

My backgarden

Here is my entry to Scoach book: I made a walk.
I made a walk through my backgarden, sketched what I saw on the way.
The black cat is called Marsha, she is already 12 years old; the young one is Yana. I would have drawn the goldfish, but they served as Yana's dinner.
