The sound of the Ocean

What do you think about when you hear the word "ocean"?
For our family it is not just hot sun, warm waters and  snorkeling, but rather quiet beaches, cool breeze and amazing tide-pool discoveries in early morning fog.  We spent ten days driving along the Oregon coast and experiencing sand dunes, cold ocean water, observing star fish and anemones, watching birds flying just above the crest of waves and then diving beak first to catch a fish. What kind of birds are those?
More than anything, Norine and I enjoyed sitting on a quiet cool beach and just listening to the sound of the waves. Have you ever listened to the waves? what do they tell you? They have a soothing effect and the ability to make me forget about my worries and list of things to do...

So where were the photos below taken?  Wait for the next post to find out.
