While visiting family in the Northwest, we stayed on the Oregon Coast close to this impressive view. When the tide was out we we were able to walk up very close to the enormous rock. It was cold and pouring down rain, but the hardy (or foolish) Oregonians were out in their winter coats and boots. Rain dripping off the end of my nose. There were even warmly dressed guides from the park service there to explain things to us. Tide pools didn't have much marine life in them because the ocean was still too cold, but we did see big starfish clnging to the rocks.
Though walking the beach on a cold, rainy day is not my cup of tea, it was great being with family I hadn't seen since last summer. The house we stayed in was a perfect refuge from the bleak weather and provided plenty of opportunities for being together or for curling up alone with a book.
I felt strongly the Spirit of Love shining in the gorgeous views and especially in family gathered.
