Brandy Creek









I had to do some business at the White Bird Gallery, so I thought let`s make it a little holiday. I reserved a place at Oceanfront Cabins in Oceanside. Luck was with me, the weather was calm and bright and we would be there during a minus tide the next morning. If they`re 'deep' enough, you can get to places one rarely can. Usually the significant ones are at two in the morning or some other impossible time. This one would start flowing back in at 8:30 AM. Lost Boy Cave is here and only accessible with a good minus tide. Even so, we still had to climb over mussel encrusted rocks, which my middle aged knees were not confident of doing. But we were in that cave at the lowest ebb and it was so worth it. Getting inside had been something I`ve wanted to do for years.

That must have been exciting. And I imagine the rock formations must be quite beautiful to behold.

What a great experience! I particularly like the last photo as it would make a great painting.

Your painting above is full of lovely colours!

Fabulous shots...that cave looks tremendous!! I kept looking behind me to see if the tide was coming back...just instinct I guess from living near the water for as long as I have.

2 a.m. under a full moon would be pretty great, though, I would think. :)

How fun to find your blog. We purchased your work at White Bird when Evelyn was still her vital self. We've always appreciated your work, and enjoy your blog, seeing the coastal influences upon your paintings. Would absolutely love to see the Arch Cape, Oswald West, Manzanita area influence on your work! Thanks for your beautiful paintings! The Houses On Manzanita Beach www.VacationRentalsManzanita.com
